The Key message from Water Safety Victoria is –

Improve your safety around beaches, rivers, lakes and public or private swimming pools. Remember to:

  • be aware of the local water environment and weather conditions before entering the water
  • obey all water safety signs
  • don’t drink alcohol while recreating around water, or when supervising children
  • and make sure there’s someone looking out for you.
