During the swim season, Wollongong City Council patrols 17 beaches, stretching from Stanwell Park in the north to Windang in the south.
Beach Patrol Hours
All of our beaches are patrolled from the start of the September school holidays til the end of the April school holidays.
Council lifeguards patrol from Monday to Saturday, and volunteer lifesavers from Surf Lifesaving Australia patrol on Sundays and public holidays.

Beach Patrol Hours 2014-15
Times for North Wollongong Beach Monday to Saturday during peak times is 8am to 6pm.
North Wollongong is our only beach that's patrolled year-round. With the nearby Bathers Pavilion and cafes, it's a great place to enjoy our coast at its best. Outside the main swim season, it's patrolled seven days a week from 9am to 4pm, and its position means it's naturally sheltered from southerly winter winds.
Before you head to the beach, make sure you check out our Beach Safety page.
