SURF LIFE SAVING QUEENSLAND

Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) is the state’s peak aquatic rescue authority and is one of the largest volunteer-based community service organisations in Australia.

Our organisation encompasses several diverse arms – lifesaving services, community education, membership services, surf sports, fundraising and commercial training – but they all contribute to one overarching purpose.

Queensland’s mainland coastline stretches more than 6,000km and there are more than 780 accessible beaches along that expanse. There are more than 30 million visits to our public waterways every year.

WHY WE EXIST - Surf Life Saving Queensland is built on a fundamental principle: to save lives.

OUR VISION - Zero preventable deaths in Queensland public waters.
