Penguin island risk sign
The treacherous Penguin Island sandbar is again closed due to dangerous conditions
The sandbar to Penguin Island where two men drowned last month, has been closed until tomorrow morning.
The Department of Environment and Conservation says strong winds and tides have made conditions in the area too dangerous for people to try to cross the sandbar.
Visitors are being urged to use a ferry service to access the island.
