How to stay safe at the beach
Never swim alone or surf at beaches not patrolled by lifeguards or lifesavers.
Beach safety education program
Gold Coast patrolled beaches
Find beach patrol times and locations of our lifeguard patrol towers of the beach you’re interested in. Our Gold Coast beach pages contain information about the facilities available and how to get there.
For the safety of swimmers, the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries implements a shark control program along Gold Coast beaches patrolled by lifeguards or lifesavers.
How do I become a lifeguard?
We hire casual lifeguards for the summer period, starting from mid-November.
