Surf Safety

Take advantage of our many beaches but always remember to follow basic surf and water safety. Always swim or surf at patrolled beaches between the red and yellow flags which mark the safest area for swimming. For further information on swimming and surf safety, as well as detailed information about all of the beaches on the Gold Coast, visit the BeachSafe website.

Emergencies

The standard emergency number in Australia is 000 which will direct you to an operator tasked with coordinating police, ambulance and firefighter services.

Insurance

All travellers to Australia should consider health insurance. Have a look at the Australian Medicare site (www.medicareaustralia.gov.au) to see if we have a reciprocal health care agreement with your country.
