    Survivor guide: Visiting Sydney’s Bondi Beach


    The most populous city in New South Wales, Australia, Sydney has lots to offer, including the world-famous Bondi Beach. There is a multitude of activities to take part in but there is also a large risk of having an accident on holiday. With Accident Advice Helpline’s survivor guide to Sydney’s Bondi Beach, you can help reduce the chances of an accident.

    Safety tips

    Be aware that the temperature on Bondi Beach can reach a scorching 40°c, making it almost unbearable for some. It is important to bring a high-factor SPF to protect against the harmful UV rays which can cause skin cancer. Another important thing to remember is to drink plenty of water to combat the effects of dehydration. The effects of dehydration range from the mild and irritating such as a dry throat or scratchy eyes right up to organ failure in extreme cases. Aim to drink at least 250ml of water of every hour on the beach. Drink water in sips not gulps.

    Australia is home to many species of poisonous snakes and spiders which can be deadly if they attack. It’s important to wear appropriate protective clothing such as adequate footwear to protect against stings and bites. If you are bitten or stung, it is important to seek medical attention urgently. Don’t ignore any symptoms as poisoning can develop over a period of time, at which point it may be too late.

    There are yellow and red marked flag areas in the sea to indicate areas that are free from strong currents and therefore are safe to swim in. It’s important to stay within the flagged areas when swimming on the beach.
