swim in the pool

While most of us learn to swim in a pool, the reality is it’s not the place we’re always going to swim. Surrounded by beautiful Australian beaches means it’s inevitable that the water we spend a large percentage of our time in will likely be the ocean. Whether you’re at a public pool or in someone’s backyard, chances are there will always be others around – whether they are lifeguards, friends, family or other members of the public. In Australia, some of our beaches can be quite remote, and while some are patrolled by lifeguards and frequented by others during peak times, others can be empty as far as the eye can see. It’s important to remember that in some situations at a beach, there may not be someone within eyesight or earshot to help you should you get into trouble.
