The surf lifesavers who operate at Cottesloe, North Cottesloe and Swanbourne are not just an example of local custom - they are more or less an Aussie icon;well and truly an Aussie tradition.This year is the year of Lifesavers celebrating 200 years since the introduction of surf lifesaving associations so they have been around for a long time (in terms of Aussie history!!) and they do serve a very important part of voluntary community service.
If they were not around I am sure all of us would feel less secure!!

Most communities like to keep their environment clean and Cottesloe is no exception. The added factor of course is that most people will walk in bare feet in the white sand so it is imperative that every person takes their rubbish with them or puts it in the bins provided.
Unfortunately, there is a small percentage of lets say "yobbos" who have no disregard for any of this and leave their bottles, cigarette butts etc in the sand.
At Cottesloe Beach there are green bins at the bottom of the steps and bags provided. At North Cottesloe the bins are not so visible as they are not at the bottom of the stairs. Instead they are part way up next to Barchetta.

You'll find when you go for a walk or bike ride that there will be a number of people doing the same thing. For most of the walkway there is a blue line down the middle. This is to indicate that you should stay on one side of the blue line and that even if you are walking with other people together some of your group should walk behind and give way to "oncoming traffic".
In Australia we keep to the left side of the path.
