Swimming Safely

For your safety, surf lifesavers patrol many beaches throughout South Australia. If you go to the beach, swim between their red and yellow Surf Lifesaving flags.

Be Sun Smart

In South Australia, our summers (December-February) are hot. It often soars above 95°F. Make sure you wear a hat, sunglasses, adequate clothing and sunscreen of at least SPF 30+. Drink plenty of water and seek shade in the extreme heat of the day between 11am and 3pm.


In an emergency or if a crime is in progress, call 000 for fire, police and ambulance assistance (call 112 from cell phones). For non-emergency police attendance call 131 444.


If you are from a yellow fever infected country or zone or have you visited one within six days before entering Australia, you will need vaccinations. If not, no vaccinations are required.


Australia has healthcare agreements with several countries but check this before you leave home. Always have appropriate travel insurance suited to your specific needs.
