Due to the relatively undeveloped part of this the Australia NSW Coast, a number of beaches here are not patrolled by lifesavers. Always check to see if they are and when. Unless your an experienced surfer or diver, it is much safer to swim at patrolled beaches due to unexpected rips and undertows.
