We are Coledale

Coledale Surf Life Saving Club was founded in 1913, since then the club has provided volunteer life savers who give their time and in one instance, their lives for the protection of the users of Coledale beach. The club supplies patrols of life savers on weekends and public holidays during the summer months and is known as one of the smaller and friendlier clubs in the area.
