We all know rips can be dangerous, but do you know what actually causes them?

When waves break on a beach, they push water towards the shoreline.

Once that water reaches the shore, it has to find a way to get back out to sea, so it flows into deeper channels and away from the shore.

They’re commonly found close to headlands, and sometimes flow directly out to sea or the current may...

Meet the gorgeous Peanut!

Peanut was adopted from the AWLQ as a wee, little kitten and unfortunately at 2 years-old, has arrived back in our care, due to no fault of his own!

Peanut is a little nervous and shy at the moment, because he's had his life turned upside down and is back to square one of finding someone to grow old with him. Peanut will settle as soon as he's back in a home...

Hey friends, name is Millie.

I am a 2 year-old kitty and I'm always being told how adorable I am. Who can deny it? I know I'm gorgeous!

I am going to be honest though, I'm not a cuddly, lap-sitting, smoochy kind of girl; I am more of an independent woman - which may stem from my history as a stray.

I believe that there is a human family out there for me that will understand my personality...

Ringo is definitely a star in our eyes!

While he may not be able to keep to the beat on a set of drums, he can certainly make you smile!

Ringo is an active 2 year-old, Wire-haired Jack Russell cross. He loves getting out for his daily walks to stretch those cute little legs of his. He does get a bit excited when he sees the lead come out and may pull a little when he first starts his walk,...

Pre ANZAC Day services held by Miranda and Caringbah RSL on Sunday was a wonderful way to begin ANZAC commemorations. I encourage all Australians to attend a local service tomorrow to commemorate the service and sacrifice of all Australians who have served and continue to serve our country with distinction and honour.

Budgerigars are highly nomadic & generally fly north during winter, covering significant distances. Flocks follow rainfall & seasonally abundant seeding grasses. They normally range from 3 to 100 birds, but after rainfall can number many thousands. [ Bit.ly Link ]
