As a movement we save life, protect life, promote life and believe in the great Australian way of life.
Surf Life Saving creates a safe environment on and off our beaches, through lifesaving patrols, training programs and education.
What we do best is saving lives. Our volunteer surf lifesavers, paid lifeguards and rescue services perform more than 15,000 rescues each year around Australia’s coastline.
We promote leadership and personal development for our members. We offer mateship, training, education and experience. We are an active part of local Australian communities.
But Surf Life Saving does much more than save lives on our beaches. We reach out to all Australians through our community programs, education and training.
Our reach is also international. We are a founding member of the International Lifesaving Federation which develops lifesaving expertise around the globe as part of our international humanitarian efforts.
