Whereis Adds Patrolled Surf Beach Information

BeachSafetyRating.jpg Telstra's Whereis map service has added information on 300 Australian beaches from Surf Life Saving Australia, including whether the beach is patrolled and an overall safety rating. The data can be accessed via Whereis-based GPS systems, or on the Whereis site — though the navigation to find individual beaches from the master list is pretty awkward. Despite that minor glitch, it's potentially useful information when you're planning summer beach trips.
