Kiama Surf Life Saving Club is a small but relaxed, community minded club that claims the beautiful Surf Beach, Kiama as its home.
Only a small beach (250m) it is surrounded by parkland and walking paths including the blowhole and the ever-popular Coronation Park which meets the sand of Surf Beach.
Due to its close location to the centre of Kiama, this has long been a very popular beach with locals and tourists to Kiama. The club was formed in 1908, only a year after the first surf life saving club was established in Australia and the first one established outside of the Sydney area. At that time people from Sydney would commute by train to Kiama to swim at Surf beach and see the famous Kiama Blowhole.
The Kiama SLSC is committed to Kiama, it’s surrounding communities and their welfare. Our club prides itself on its friendly atmosphere, strong competition and the promotion of a healthy life style within our local community by promoting and teaching surf, health and life skills.
Our volunteer lifeguards patrol Surf Beach every weekend between September – April each year. Our nippers also hit the sand and water every Sunday morning during this period which make Surf Beach a popular family destination.
With an enviable location, our club sundeck is popular for member functions and Sunday Sips, but are also able to be hired by the public for functions.
Kiama Surf Lifesaving Club Inc is a member of the South Coast Branch of surf lifesaving clubs (spanning from Warilla-Barrack Point to Mollymook), which in turn is affiliated with NSW Surf Life Saving.
