Welcome to Surf Life Saving Wide Bay Capricorn

Operating since 1953 under the banner of South Barrier Branch, it changed its name to Wide Bay Capricorn Branch in 2002. It is the governing body of the 8 voluntary surf Life Saving Clubs that extended from Yeppoon in the North, to Hervey Bay in the South. Comprised of a core group of passionate and dedicated volunteers, the surf lifesavers at the SLSWBC clubs are skilled at conducting patrol and rescue operations along the pristine Wide Bay coastline. 

Monitoring the surf and shore since 1953

For over sixty years now our surf lifesaving club has had a long and proud history of ensuring the safety of all beachgoers. From our beginning, we have practised innovative and proven lifesaving techniques to ensure a greater level of safety for swimmers in our waters. Focusing on community outreach and education our club have maintained close community ties so that they understand the dangers of entering the water and know methods to help themselves and others should they encounter them.

It is important to remember

TO ALWAYS SWIM BETWEEN THE RED & YELLOW FLAGS.
 IF WE CAN'T SEE YOU, WE CAN'T SAVE YOU.
