In the recent Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water (DECCW) Beachwatch report North Botany Bay beaches  Yarra Bay, Frenchmans Bay, and Foreshore Beach were reported as Fair, Poor and Very Poor, respectively.  The report states that:

In polluted waters, swimmers may be exposed to pathogens, which can easily enter the ears, eyes, nose and mouth. The skin is also directly exposed to infectious agents and chemicals through swimming, playing or working in polluted waters. This exposure can lead to a variety of health problems including gastroenteritis, flu-like illnesses, dermatitis, ear, nose and throat infections, sinusitis and deep tissue or blood infections through open wounds. The number of pathogens required to cause infections varies widely between micro-organisms and the general health of an individual. Children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems appear to be at greater risk. Visitors without prior immunity may also be at higher risk than the local population.
