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.
