Have a great day on the water

Follow these simple safety guidelines to minimise the risk of a shark attack:

  • Don’t swim at dawn or dusk.
  • Always swim in clear water (not in murky water, busy anchorages, estuary mouths or canals).
  • Don’t throw food scraps or fish waste overboard (including in anchorages or where people are swimming).
  • Don’t swim where fish are being cleaned.
  • Swim, surf, snorkel or dive with a buddy.
  • Follow local signage and swim between the flags at patrolled beaches.
