While Australia is famous for its beaches, the waters off the Australian coast can be unforgiving, with large swell and strong rips. This FACT indicates the total number of drowings that occurred on coastal beaches in each Australian state and territory throughout 2016-2017. New South Wales had the highest number of coastal drownings at 32, while the Northern Territory was the lowest at 3. No data has been entered for the Australian Capital Territory, as there is no coast.
