Surf Life Saving is Australia’s major water safety and rescue authority. Our mission is to save lives in and around the water.

We create a safe environment around our beaches by patrolling the shore and through education and training programs offered to all Australians.

Surf Life Saving is an active part of Australian local communities. Our movement prides itself on offering a place to belong, to grow, to be active and be safe. It provides mateship, education and experience.

The Surf Life Saving movement is an intrinsic part of Australia’s history and identity. It epitomises the lifestyle, values and beliefs of Australian culture. Surf Life Saving is the largest volunteer movement of its kind in the world. It’s a not-for-profit cause that exists through community funding and fundraising. For all Australians, Surf Life Saving embodies and inspires a truly positive and uniquely Australian attitude.
