Welcome to Fairy Meadow Surf Lifesaving Club

OUR STORY

Welcome to Fairy Meadow SLSC

Fairy Meadow Surf Lifesaving Club is a small community focused surf club, located just north of the Wollongong CBD. Started in 1950, by a group of local residents, to safe guard the people of Fairy Meadow and the Balgownie areas, that swum at our beach.

Today Fairy Meadow SLSC has a diverse range of members who are all committed to the core beliefs of Surf Lifesaving; We save lives, create great Australians and build better communities. It is this mission that Fairy Meadow SLSC not only upholds as a Surf Club but also as a community leader. Currently, our Lifesavers patrol the beach on Sundays and Public Holidays from late September through to April each year.

Fairy Meadow Surf Club prides its self on being welcoming, social and family friendly. We are popular with University of Wollongong students being just a short walk from Campus East. We have a popular Nipper program that encourages Children to get involved, learn new skills in a safe, encouraging, and ‘no pressure’ environment – its all about having fun, building confidence and making new friends.
