About us


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.

We are a club that values our members. We provide high quality training in First Aid, Resuscitation and Aquatic rescue. Our members are well prepared for their role as lifesavers. Membership allows members to request access to the Clubs facilities including: Surf Skis, Boards, Gymnasium, and showers/Change rooms.

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.

Fairy Meadow Surf Club offers up its Function Room for hire 7days a week (pending availability). Our function room offers fantastic ocean views, including a beach facing balcony, Close to multiple forms of public transport, plenty of free parking and we are located away from residential areas, so noise is never an issue.
