Coolangatta Surf Life Saving Club

We’re celebrating over 60 years of Surf Life Saving in Coolangatta,  looking after the safety of beachgoers in Coolangatta Beach.
Join us and become part of an iconic organisation!

Beach Patrols are the most important component of Club activities. Patrols are the reason Surf Life Saving exists – to protect the general public and prevent drowning. Without patrols, Surf Life Saving Clubs as we know them would cease to exist.

Our club encourages teamwork, volunteering, leadership and community services.




Nippers is for children aged 5 to 13, which we see these as the future of our Club. Before the start of the Junior Activities season, each child is required to complete a Preliminary Skills Evaluation designed to ensure that each child demonstrates a standard of competence in an aquatic environment.
