Built on tradition, forged out of passion, and focused on the future, SLSQ is recognised as the leading authority on coastal and aquatic safety. We are a volunteer-led, professionally managed organisation.
Our purpose is to equip, develop, empower and support our people to deliver vital aquatic rescue and safety services to save lives across Queensland.
Our vision is zero preventable deaths in Queensland public waters – our beaches, waterways and lagoons.
Who We Are
From humble beginnings, when the first official rescue was recorded on a Queensland beach in 1909, SLSQ, which was formally established in 1930, has developed into a ground-breaking and highly innovative organisation. SLSQ has 57 established surf lifesaving clubs with members patrolling 8,000 kilometres of the Queensland coastline from Port Douglas to Rainbow Bay. More than 34,000 Queenslanders are volunteer members of a surf lifesaving club and more than 462,000 are a member of an affiliated supporters club. Our vision: zero preventable deaths in Queensland public waters.
Our Major Partners
