Moruya’s beaches have been closed for the second day in a row following a shark sighting close to shore on Thursday morning.
Lifeguarding Services Australia chief Stan Wall said beaches at Moruya, North Head and Broulee would be closed following the sighting at about 8.20am on January 12.
Mr Wall said the NSW Department of Primary Industries helicopter spotted the shark, which was believed to be the 2.5 metre great white shark that forced the closure of the same beaches on Wednesday morning.
He said the Westpac Lifesaver 23 helicopter was due to conduct a sweep of the area at 9am.
The beaches are expected to remain closed until further notice.
