Surf life saving elliott heads
Elliott Heads Surf Life Saving Club was established in 1965 by an enthusiastic band of volunteers led by local man John Cox, who developed a man-made beach between two rock groynes just north of the Elliott River mouth.
Over the years the club has grown and developed, and its clubhouse has recently undergone its fourth stage of building and extension to accommodate the growing needs of members. The clubhouse, which is nestled between sand dunes and a popular coastal caravan park, is at once a training centre, gear storage facility and second home to generations of lifesavers.
Elliott Heads SLSC has built a reputation for being a friendly, family-oriented club, with several generations of some families filling a variety of roles across the club. The club has enjoyed a variety of sporting successes over the years, with our teams and individuals winning state and national medals in beach and water events, IRB events and surfboat events, and Champion Lifesaver and patrol competitions. Regardless of the changes in both the lifesaving movement and some faces over the years, one thing never changes – and that is our members’ determination to collectively protect our beautiful beach and the people who use it.
