Cairns SLSC

The Cairns Surf Life Saving Club is one of the oldest Surf Life Saving clubs in Queensland, having been formed in 1924 as a volunteer organisation to patrol the Northern Beaches of Cairns.

Originally patrolling the Cairns Esplanade, the club moved to Yorkey’s Knob before moving to the Northern end of Palm Cove in 1953.  Cairns SLSC maintains its voluntary patrols of the beach on weekends and public holidays from April to November.  The club offers activities for junior members aged between 5 and 13 (known universally as Nippers) and for senior members through to a thriving Masters (over 30) contingent.

We encourage membership across the ages and offer a strong junior and senior program which appeals to all comers, to ensure that the Lifesaving presence of the Cairns Club continues strongly into the future.
