Sydney’s Bondi Beach is one of Australia’s most iconic locations. Famous across the globe for its crystal white sand, surfing culture, bustling promenade and trendy bars – it’s the place that everyone wants to be seen.
At the centre of Bondi’s success are the lifeguards, those who put their lives on the line to keep the beaches safe, 365 days a year. They know the rips, the currents, the tide and the dangers of the local beach.
