Boaters should keep clear of an area on the Tweed River at Tumbulgum this weekend as Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for a fireworks display.

The exclusive use area applies to the river near the intersection of River Side Drive and Fawcett Street from 9:00pm to 10.30pm on Saturday 19 October.
The exclusive use aquatic licence has been granted to All Occasions Pyrotechnics Pty Ltd who are managing the event.
The fireworks barge will be marked by buoys, and for safety reasons skippers should avoid this area as it will be closed for the event.
Vessels not involved in the event should not enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by a boating safety officer or a police officer.
