About Us

Surf Life Saving is Australia's major water safety, drowning prevention and rescue authority.

Our movement is a part of the history, fabric and future of this country. It represents the lifestyle, values and beliefs of the Australian culture. It protects life, it saves life, it promotes life.

We create a safe environment in and around our beaches; through patrols on, in and above the shore and through education and training programs.

Surf Life Saving is an active part of Australian local communities. Our movement prides itself on offering mateship, education and experience; and in doing so, gives back to the community.

Surf Life Saving is the largest volunteer movement of its kind in Australia. We are a not-for-profit movement that exists only through community donations, fundraising and corporate sponsorship.

For people young and old, Surf Life Saving inspires a positive and uniquely Australian attitude because every member, every club - the entire movement - embraces and promotes a 'can do' attitude to life.
