Beach safety

Follow these simple rules to be safe at the beach:

  • Always swim between the red and yellow flags, never swim outside them.
  • Do not swim directly after a meal or if under the influence of alcohol.
  • Only swim when the red and yellow flags are flying. If there are no flags, the beach is closed or unpatrolled.
  • Do not panic if caught in a current or undertow. Raise one arm into the air to signal for lifeguard assistance. Float until help arrives.
  • Do not struggle if seized with a cramp. Raise your arm for help and float. Keep the part of your body that is cramping perfectly still.
  • Do not swim if unsure of surf conditions. Always seek the advice of a lifeguard or lifesaver.
  • Do not struggle against a rip or current. Swim diagonally across it.

Alcohol free zones

To keep our beaches, parks and streets safe we have a number of alcohol-free zones in place throughout the year. Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte beaches and public streets are classified as alcohol-free zones. This means you are not permitted to consume alcohol in these areas.
