welcome to the lifeguarding section

From early November through to mid-March each and every weekend you will find Midway Beach patrolled by volunteer lifeguards in yellow and red. These dedicated people place out flags, don the uniform and rescue tube to advertise the safest area for everyone to swim on a nice, or not so nice, summers day.

They are here to make sure you have the most fun as possible on Midway Beach while keeping as safe as possible. So, please listen to the yellow-and-red wearing lifeguards and swim between the flags so we all have a great time on the beach this summer.

Patrol times are:

  • Saturdays and Public Holidays 1pm - 5pm.
  • Sundays 9.30am - 5.30pm.

Note, patrol times can and will be extended on busy days.
