Surf lifesaving patrols are back on our beaches with both volunteers and Council’s contracted service provider, Australian Lifeguard Services, keeping swimmers safe these school holidays.

Lifeguards will be on patrol during weekdays from 9am – 5pm during the school holidays at Bennetts, Elizabeth, Forster Main and One Mile Beaches.

Boomerang Beach will be patrolled seven-days-a-week.

In addition, local Surf Lifesaving Clubs will provide beach patrol services on weekends and public holidays at Bennetts, Black Head, Crowdy Head, Elizabeth, Forster Main, Old Bar and One Mile beaches.

Last season, over 222,000 people were recorded visiting MidCoast Council beaches during lifeguard patrols, where lifeguards performed 41 rescues and 156 first aids.
