Posted April 03, 2019 05:38:24The water is coming down on the coast of the South Australian state, as waves wash the sand out of the beaches and beaches are turning brown.
More than a million people were in South Australia on Sunday to celebrate the first wave of the season, which will sweep out to sea on Tuesday.
The waves will bring a gentle wash of the beach, but in the process it will cause the sand to get really brown.
Some beachgoers are concerned about the long-term impacts of the waves.
“I think people should be aware that there will be some really nasty impacts,” said Julie Brown, who lives in Southport.
“When you go out there and you get wet it’s a very unpleasant feeling.”
If you’re really unlucky, it can kill you.
“The South Australian government is hoping to see more people walking and cycling to get out to the beaches, and to reduce the amount of time people spend at the beach.”
It’s been a great time to be out there, but there’s still a lot of people out there who need to go back to work,” Southport Mayor John Smith said.”
So we’ve got to be prepared.
