Goolwa Surf Lifesaving Club

Goolwa Surf Life Saving Club is South Australia’s youngest club. It has been brought into existence by numerous dedicated volunteers who commit their time and efforts to keeping all beach users safe on the beach and in the water. In 2019 Goolwa SLSC moved into a brand-new clubhouse that includes an upstairs bar and dining area. All members and visitors are welcomed to the clubhouse to enjoy the views, purchase a beverage and dine on local grown food.

The environment
The coastline of Alexandrina council boasts some of the best coastline within the state with Goolwa beach being one of the most popular. The Goolwa coastline offers a diversity of coastal experience including fishing, swimming kayaking and surfing.

While on most occasions the beach is a haven for visitors it can also be one of the most hazardous and dangerous stretches of coast in Australia.

People visiting the area have varying degrees of skill and experience and this can determine how well they will manage the change of conditions. This is why the need for Surf lifesavers in this area is crucial. Goolwa Surf lifesavers understand the conditions and regularly train at Goolwa beach. Our octogenarians have passed down their words of wisdom, rescue stories and great advice for us to then retell to our nippers and youth.

Thank you to the public
