We extend a warm welcome to new and existing members for the 2017/18 season. Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club is proud to be part of an iconic community organisation that promotes family involvement, a healthy beach lifestyle, beach safety and active participation through surf sports.
Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club Inc. has a long and proud history and in 2021 will celebrate it’s Centenary of ‘Vigilance and Service’ to the Bundaberg community. A brief history has been prepared with reference to “A Surf Life Saving Saga. The Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club Inc. It’s History 1921-1986.” by Noel F. Bullpitt MBE. The history of any club is about its people and we hope this presents a snap-shot of the many members and hard-working volunteers who have played a role in building Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club over almost 100 years.
Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club continues to thrive on support and donations from various local and state organisations. Every one of the generous contributions made by our supporters and fundraising events allows the club to be as successful as it is in providing a safe and healthy beach environment.
Bundy Big Bingo has been contributing to the club since 1974, and has raised just over $897,000 in that time. Each year, members of the club volunteer a small amount of their time to assist Danny Carswell in the running of Bundy Big Bingo on Wednesday nights and we thank everyone involved for volunteering their time to such a great fundraiser for Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club. Amanda Gardner coordinates the members for Bingo on Wednesdays and we thank her for her time and dedication. Amanda is always on the lookout for volunteers and can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bundaberg SLSC has a long and proud history of Summer Surf Girl Campaign entrants as a fundraiser for the club. In the 2016/2017 season, Gemma Henricksen took on the role of representing the club and held a number of successful events that contributed to her $17668 total. We thank Gemma for her contribution and are very proud of her outstanding efforts that promoted Surf Life Saving, encouraged participation and continue to inspire women and girls throughout Surf Life Saving.
We also continue to support the Cane2Coral Fun Run as a major fundraiser for Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club, and we thank all the volunteers and coordinators that make this fantastic community event happen. The Club benefits greatly from the time and effort the community and members put in, and we look forward to the event in August every year.

Surf Life Saving’s ground-breaking and national award-winning Seahorse Nippers program provides an opportunity for children with disabilities to have fun in the surf and learn vital water safety skills, all while under the supervision of qualified surf lifesavers.
Throughout the program, the youngsters will participate in a range of activities and games, encompassing water skills and lifesaving techniques, all designed to slowly build their confidence in the water and teach them how to stay safe at the beach.
Seahorse Nippers is a wonderful opportunity to make sure that all children, including those who might have conditions like down syndrome, cerebral palsy or autism, have the opportunity to participate in nippers.
The program is all about getting out and having fun, enjoying our beautiful coast, and learning some water safety skills along the way, all under the guide and supervision of trained lifesavers.
Bundaberg Surf Lifesaving Club works closely with other clubs in the Wide Bay Capricorn Branch to assist in the running of a successful Seahorse Nippers Program. For more information, visit the Seahorse Nippers Facebook Page or contact email@example.com
