Lifesavers on deserved break

RAINBOW Beach Surf Lifesavers will have a well-earned break as the season comes to a close at the end of the long weekend, but surf safety services and behaviour do not have to take a dive.

Volunteer lifesavers will have a winter break from weekend duties and commence again at the beginning of the school holidays in mid September.

Local beach- goers and visitors can rest assured that while volunteer lifesavers are resting up and recharging for next season, there will still be a high level of service on Cooloola Coast.

As from next week, Gympie Council's lifeguard service will step up and patrol seven days a week throughout winter.

In addition to these winter patrols, lifeguard services will increase during weekend and public holidays.

Rainbow Beach is still popular during the winter period, with Queensland weather and surf conditions generally favoured by visitors from southern parts of Australia and overseas.

 

These surf safety messages apply regardless of the time of year:

  • Swim only at a beach patrolled by lifeguards or lifesavers.
  • No matter how safe the conditions may seem, swim only between the flags.
  • Read and obey signs and directions.
  • Supervise children at all times.
  • Do not swim under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
