Hundreds of revellers have converged on Sydney’s beaches on Friday night to bring in the weekend despite the city’s hard Covid lockdown.

Footage taken about 6pm at North Bondi in the city’s eastern suburbs showed locals gathered in large groups on a grassy knoll overlooking the beach with no police in sight. 

By 7.30pm though officers had arrived to break up the festivities – with hundreds then seen packing up and leaving the park. 

Footage taken at North Bondi in the city’s eastern suburbs on Friday evening showed locals gathered in large groups on a grassy knoll By 7.30pm though officers had arrived to break up the festivities – with hundreds seen packing up and leaving the park Police arrived later in the evening to disperse the revellers Locals were also out in full force to enjoy the Friday evening weather at Manly Beach on the city’s northern beaches

Large crowds could also be seen having a drink and catching up with friends at Manly Beach on the city’s northern beaches. 

Sydneysiders are just weeks away from enjoying relaxed lockdown restrictions once 70 per cent of NSW’s eligible population is fully vaccinated – which is set for October 11. 

But residents for now are still only allowed to gather in groups of two outdoors, or in groups of up to five if they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
