Swimming and Outdoor safety:

  • Attend swimming and water safety classes if you or your children cannot swim. Swimming in the ocean can be extremely dangerous.
  • Observe warning signs to avoid accidents such as slipping on ocean rocks, or being swept into the sea by large waves or high tides. Be careful when swimming in rivers, lakes and dams: Check for signs indicating hazards (such as crocodiles or pollution) and obey them. Always supervise children who are swimming or who are near water, including backyard pools.
  • The sun in Australia is very strong. Wear a hat, protective clothing and sunscreen on sunny days to avoid sunburn. Take notice of weather forecasts. Open fires and barbeques are not permitted on total fire ban days.
