Sunshine Coast Police

Safety
The main dangers relate to water and the sea. Visitors have drowned on unguarded beaches where the rip has taken them out to sea. The exposed beaches are particularly dangerous and you must swim only between the marked flags where a lifeguard is on duty. A safe area is marked between two red and yellow flags. A red flag means do not enter the water. A yellow flag means swim with caution. If you have any emergencies the police, ambulance or fire service will respond quickly if you call the emergency number 000. Remember you must wear a seat belt at all times and if you are on a motor/push bike a helmet.

Sunshine Coast Tourist seasons
The high season is the Christmas period until the third week in January and the Easter school holidays. The low season for Sunshine Coast Tourism is after the Easter holidays until mid September and the shoulder season from mid January until Easter. The low season is becoming an increasingly popular time to come as the days are sunny, the climate very pleasant with just a chill in the evening, and it is still possible to swim all year.

All the main Australia banks can be found in the commerical centres and shopping malls.
