If you want a safe place to swim all year round, specially during the warm months of the year, make sure to head over Tallebudgera Surf Life Saving Club.
Tallebudgera SLSC’s patrol area covers Tallebudgera Creek’s south up to a point within the northern limits patrolled by Pacific SLSC.
Regular beach patrols are done from mid-September to April. Most recently, an `outpost’ patrol service was added to monitor the safety of surfers, swimmers and boats in the Takkebudgera Creek-mouth – an area where outgoing tides prove to be treacherous.
If you want to learn new skills as well as serve the community, Tallebudgera Surf Life Saving Club provides lessons and qualifications in lifesaving and other related activities. A few of the areas you can acquire qualifications in include: Defibrillation, First Aid, Resuscitation, Emergency Care, Wave Runner Operator, Radio Operations and Bronze Medallion Surf Rescue Certificate.
Lifesavers trained by Tallebudgera SLSC perform a slew of rescues every season.
Tallebudgera Surf Life Saving Club considers physical fitness as critical and thus offers a program of competitions referred to as Surf Carnivals. These carnivals ensure that volunteer lifesavers’ fitness level is at par with standards. Surf Carnivals begin from November until March.
The Tallebudgera Surf Life Saving Club began during the end of World War II and is now 60 years old. It is located at 1505 Gold Coast Hwy Palm Beach North, adjacent to the Tallebudgera Recreation Camp. Tallebudgera SLSC is a quick drive from our Gold Coast Holiday Accommodation.
