Tallebudgera Surf Life Saving Club is located adjacent to the Tallebudgera Recreation Camp (formerly the National Fitness Camp), with the clubhouse located approximately 500 metres south of the entrance to the Tallebudgera Creek.
The Club was formed in 1946 by a group of National Fitness Camp members who saw the need to provide a service to beachgoers by providing a surf patrol.
The Club’s patrol area includes the area south of the Tallebudgera Creek to a point coinciding with the northern limits of the area patrolled by Pacific SLSC. Beach patrols are conducted from mid September through to the end of April. Recently the club added to its coverage by providing an ‘outpost’ patrol service to watch over swimmers, surfers and boats in the Tallebudgera Creek-mouth, which can be particularly treacherous on an outgoing tide.
Presently the Club (Surf Club and Supporter’s Club) has a total of approximately 6,500 members including Nippers, Active and Long Service categories of membership. “Talle” as we affectionately call it, has members from 5 to 80 (and beyond), drawn from all walks of life.
