Temporary accommodation for surf club
Construction of the new Surf Life Saving Club is scheduled to start in February 2021.
In preparation, surf club storage and activities will be moved to new temporary facilities to the west of the existing surf club in late September 2020, with the public amenities to follow in December.
We are very excited to see the project progressing and look forward to bringing you a beautiful new clubhouse and community facilities in 2021.
