Safety around Walking Path

The most serious safety issue for rocky shore explorers is the threat to life caused by the “freak wave”. It usually surges across the rocky shore, ambushing the unwary. 

An unsuspecting person can easily be washed off a rock into deep water. You can easily drown, or be swept against barnacle-encrusted rocks.


• No matter how safe a rocky shore may seem, never walk on wet rocks or near the edge

• Always keep a lookout for infrequent large waves.

• If you get swept in swim away from the rocks, never try and get out.

• Never go in the water to try and help, call 000 and reassure and reaffirm to the victim, stay calm and swim out to sea.
