About the club:

The Cairns Surf Life Saving Club is one of the oldest Surf Life Saving clubs in Queensland, having been formed in 1924 as a volunteer organization to patrol the Northern Beaches of Cairns. Originally patrolling the Cairns Esplanade, the club moved to Yorkey’s Knob before moving to the Northern end of Palm Cove in 1953. It is one of only three clubs in Queensland that has freehold ownership of its land. Cairns SLSC maintains its voluntary patrols of the beach on weekends and public holidays from April to November.

The club offers activities for junior members aged between 5 and 13 (known universally as “Nippers”), and for senior members through to a thriving “Masters” (over 30) contingent. Competitively, the Cairns SLSC has been riding a wave of success in the last few years, and are currently the 2011 Branch and North Australian Champion club.

Membership across the ages is encouraged and the club offers a strong junior and senior program, to ensure that the Lifesaving presence of the Cairns Club continues strongly into the future. Cairns SLSC has a brand new clubhouse and member facilities.
