About Moore Park Surf Life Saving Club
Moore Park Surf Life Saving Club was founded at a meeting on 9 August, 1954 as a memorial to the men and women of the district who had served their country at war.
Foundation members camped for the weekend to patrol the North coast beach (Moore Park Beach).
The first clubhouse was a tent, a rusty shark tower and wind up shark alarm donated from another club and a 10 ft fishing boat for rescues and training.
Their volunteer members provide emergency search/rescue and first aid, deliver surf safety and provide preventative programs to ensure beach visitors avoid danger.
