Millions of people visit Western Australia’s beautiful coastline and beaches every year – and while they look amazing, they can be unpredictable and hide some dangers.

Despite the efforts of our trained volunteer surf lifesavers, paid lifeguards and support operations teams, people continue to drown along the West Australian coastline each year, usually at non-patrolled beaches or at times when lifesavers and lifeguards are not on duty. The aim of SLSWA is to achieve zero drownings.

To help us achieve that, we’ve put together some information and tips to help keep you, your family, your friends and your loved ones safe when you visit our beautiful coast!
