Beach flags are down marking the end of the beach season

By Central Coast Council
Posted: 29 Apr 2024
Central Coast beach patrol season came to an official close on Sunday 28 April 2024.

From Monday 29 April, all beaches will be unpatrolled by Council lifeguards or Surf Life Saving Central Coast lifesavers with the 2024-25 season set to commence on Saturday 28 September 2024.

Now is a great reminder that while the beach season is over, many locals and visitors are still visiting our beaches to enjoy the water, and being aware of water safety is still very important. Everyone is being urged to keep safety at the top of their mind when in and around the Coasts waterways.

Top five safety tips to keep in mind:

  1. Always take some sort of flotation device
  2. Never swim alone
  3. If you’re going rock fishing, be sure to plan ahead - wear appropriate safety equipment, let others know where you are going and carry a phone
  4. Avoid swimming for at least one day after heavy rain to decrease exposure to stormwater pollution
  5. When out on the water, be sure to check your vessel, check the weather, wear appropriate safety equipment, prepare children, let others know where you’re going and know what to do in an emergency.

Until the next patrol season, Council encourages the community to check out safe swimming options available throughout the winter period at The Grant McBride Baths, Toukley Aquatic Centre, Gosford Pool and the Peninsula Leisure Centre.
