Police say they have issued 15 penalty infringement notices since Christmas Eve, including to 11 people at a house party at North Bondi on Saturday that breached public health orders.
Just before 11pm on Saturday, police attended a home on Blair Street after receiving multiple noise complaints, where they located at least 40 people at the party, most of whom ran from the home when officers arrived.
Officers spoke with 11 people, including two residents and nine visitors, who remained at the property. Two women – aged 24 and 26 – and nine men – aged 26, 28, 30, 31, 32, 34, and three aged 24 – were subsequently issued $1000 infringements for not complying with COVID-19 restrictions.
The residents were also issued a 28-day noise abatement direction, while the visitors were directed to leave the area.
