Cronulla, Wanda Beach, tower

Wanda Beach is the northernmost patrolled beach of the southern suburb of Cronulla. This lifesaver's tower sits behind the beach, close to Wanda Lifesavers Club, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A group of lifesavers are keeping watch on Bate Bay, as a swimmer heads down to the beach, a kitesurfer surfs the bay and a seagull flies past.

  5. Are they volunteers? The Kiwi ones wear the same colour as yours.

  6. Ann, there are a lot of volunteer lifesavers but most of Sydney's beaches also have regular professional lifesavers patrolling them. There are actually different colour schemes for uniforms at other clubs.

  9. You are into this naming of the bays, thing aren't you. Keep it up. I have no idea of the name of each of the bays, just of the beaches.

    What are yotru using? Something to do with the Geographical Names Board?

  10. Julie, I always use my trusted UBD Street Directory when I'm preparing these posts and often discover names of bays and points that I didn't know existed because they aren't commonly used. I do use the Geographical Names Board site too but mainly to check whether the place names are still officially recognised or haven't been changed recently.

  11. That's nice to see Cronulla beach. I have been there several times. Friens of mine used to live there quite near.
    Thanks for your visit and comment.Actually the whole world ought to help. When my country was suffering from floods in the fifties, people from all over the world came to help. In summer we cleaned houses with a lot of other students from abroad.

  12. I love those towers, they do look like they could topple at any minute though.
