Beach 2 Bush

Family & Kids

The Beach to Bush program offers students in regional areas an introduction to surf lifesaving and the vital water safety skills required to stay safe in an aquatic environment.

The presentation is designed to increase awareness of the risks associated with the surf and show children how to minimise these risks. Students from regional communities are often less familiar with the potential dangers of the surf and the program aims to reach those children before they reach the beach.

It also increases awareness of risks associated with local waterways such as dams, creeks and rivers, and provides students with water safety knowledge to ensure they remain safe.

Every year the program visits around 50 regional and rural schools. If your school would be interested in being considered for future tours, please let us know.

Surf Life Saving Queensland has a COVID-19 Safe Industry Plan in place for all our programs.
