Swim between the flags on Eastern beach

always swim between the flags

Welcome to Port Fairy Surf Lifesaving Club

The Club, at East beach, boasts a modern building constructed in 2000. It has splendid views of the patrolled beach and coastline, and contains state-of-the-art surf life saving equipment.

Club activities include regular beach patrols over the summer season, our Nipper program which involves teaching surf life saving awareness and safety to children, various Surf Sports Squads for competitors, training for surf life saving awards, and participation in Victoria's surf life saving carnivals. The Club also runs Nipper carnivals and events, the 1.2 km. Moyneyana Ocean Swim and the Moyne Duck Derby on the Moyne River, both in January.

For further information on what the Club is currently up to check out our Facebook page.
