Ready to ride the king tide?

If you are on or near the water this morning and afternoon, get ready to ride the highs and lows of the king tide.

King tides will sweep Australia’s east coast today and coastal visitors and residents are being encouraged to capture the experience on their cameras.

In Eden the king high tide is expected at 9.29am, peaking at 2 metres with a low tide of .1 metre at 4.18pm.

Grab your cameras and head to Snug Cove or Quarantine Bay for the most dramatic photo opportunities. 

Share your photos with our online readers via the Magnet’s Facebook site, or send them to the editor, to share with readers in next week’s edition of the Magnet.

Green Cross Australia is also calling for you to share your king tide images as part of a nationwide initiative - the Witness King Tides project - that they coordinate.

The image database snapped by tide trackers from around Australia will help them to visualise the potential impacts of future sea level rise and its effect on our iconic beaches, coastal areas and shoreline communities.
