About the Club
The Bilgola Surf Life Saving Club was formed in the summer of 1949 when a small band of locals commenced patrols on Bilgola Beach. In 2019 the Bilgola SLSC celebrated 70 years of service to the local community. Bilgola Beach is nestled in between Avalon and Newport Beach in the picturesque region of Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Our volunteers are committed to keeping the beach safe and serving our community. We patrol Bilgola beach on weekends and public holidays during the Patrol season, which starts in September and goes through to late April.
Every summer, Bilgola is home to several major surf sports events, including the Billy Swim and the Bilgola Boat Carnival. We have a thriving nippers community and a genuine family friendly atmosphere.
The Bilgola SLSC clubhouse is a the focal point for our club and local SLSC community. The facilities include new and upgraded toilets and showers, a gymnasium, BBQ areas and glazed undercover areas. It has a spacious hall and bar area for club training, meetings and private functions, as well as junior clubrooms and storage for our lifesaving and competition equipment. The clubhouse has a fulltime caretaker onsite.
The Club office is located at the ramp on the side of the building nearest the carpark. The office is staffed by Kylie, our Club Co-ordinator, during these hours:
Monday: 9am -3pm
Tuesday: 9am – 3pm
Friday: 9am – 3pm
