UPDATE 1pm: North and South Head beaches have been closed again after more shark sightings.
9am: After a sharky few days, North and South Head beaches at Moruya are open this morning, Lifeguarding Services Australia spokesman Stan Wall said.
“I’m very happy – nothing was spotted from the helicopter,” he said.
“The jet skis went out and found nothing, so we’re opening North and South Head beaches.”

Mr Wall said shark awareness was one of many reasons it’s best to swim between the flags at a patrolled beach.
Beaches around Moruya, including North Head, South Head and Broulee, were closed repeatedly since January 4 due to persistent shark sightings, including sightings of great white sharks over two metres in size.
North Broulee beach was evacuated on Sunday, January 6, after aerial surveillance spotted a Great White Shark at 12.29pm, the Department of Primary Industries said.
