About Coolum Surf Club Sunshine Coast

Keeping Coolum Beach Safe

Every dollar that you spend at Coolum Surf Club goes towards helping our volunteer surf lifesavers keep Coolum Beach safe.

We care about our community, which is why we were awarded Best Surf Life Saving Supporters Club in 2020. Funds raised by our licensed Club go to Coolum Beach Surf Life Saving Club. The money goes towards much-needed lifesaving equipment and training for our 240-plus volunteer surf lifesavers to learn skills and keep our beaches safe.

While surf lifesavers volunteer their time, the costs of setting up a single beach patrol can add up to more than $80,000. This includes necessary life-saving equipment such as rescue boards, inflatable rescue boats, first-aid kits, defibrillators, and much more. How much can you give to help us save a life? Please donate today.

We appreciate every donation to our not-for-profit Surf Life Saving Club!

From humble beginnings

History of Coolum Beach Surf Life Saving Club & Culture

The birth of surf lifesaving in Coolum Beach coincides with a spirit of optimism in a tiny, isolated speck of a settlement back in 1919.

It was Coolum’s time to ‘have a go’, after the end of the Great War in Europe the year before, and with the Twenties ready to roar full steam ahead. Coolum SLSC struggled to train and maintain enough fit men at first but kicked on in the 1930s – despite the World Depression.

Over the years the club has survived major challenges like World War II when most of its active men joined up to fight and a number died in battle. It is a legacy of loyalty and faith in one another that continues to this day through the unpaid efforts of about 200 active Coolum lifesavers.

In 2010, Coolum SLSC adopted its motto: ‘The Heart of Coolum Since 1919… Your Club For Life’ not long after opening its remodelled clubhouse with $2 million worth of improvements, including the best training facilities available.
