We love heading down to the beach in summer - after years in Asia we now find the waters of the Indian Ocean in the south-west really cold but you still can’t beat the landscape of this amazing coastline and watching the sun setting on the end of a beautiful day.
Having young children we stick to the sheltered beaches and bays in the area. The three beaches below are patrolled during certain times of the year. You can click on the buttons below to go to the official Surf Life Saving Australia pages which will provide you with information on patrols, weather conditions and hazards.
If you are aren’t familiar with the water here are some basic tips for swimming in our Australian beaches taken directly from Surf Life Saving Australia.
