With the summer days heating up, we all know the beach is one of the best places to have fun and keep cool with family and friends over the Australia Day Long weekend.

We remind you to be beach safe these holidays and swim between the red and yellow flags, as this is where our lifesavers can best see you! See below for the details of where you can find lifesaving patrols over key days.
