WELCOME TO EIMEO SURF LIFESAVING CLUB
No one is a born surf lifesaver. Surf lifesaving is a learned skill. It takes a committed individual to undertake the theoretical and practical study needed to gain the basic award of the Bronze Medallion.
Eimeo Nippers is the Junior Activities arm of Eimeo Surf Life Saving Club; the main aim of which is to provide a fun filled program of surf education for community surf safety and the development of future lifesavers for the club.
At Eimeo Surf Life Saving Club, we believe that the youth are the future of our club and their community. These keen and enthusiastic young people volunteer numerous hours ensuring a safe swimming environment for the public.
Eimeo Surf Life Saving Club is the youngest club in Queensland, opening her doors in December 2000. Mackay Surf Life Saving Club was in the very spot we are today. They operated here from 1948-1960. The club was then run as a catamaran club until the Surf Club took over.
Eimeo Surf Life Saving Club is situated in the northern beaches of Mackay, at the start of the beautiful Whitsundays or the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Eimeo beach is arguably the most beautiful beach in Mackay with its crystal clear waters and views of the islands.
Volunteer lifesavers from Eimeo Surf Life Saving Club are dedicated to keeping the beach safe for everyone to enjoy. They patrol Saturday afternoons and all day Sunday during summer, with a full time lifeguard on patrol throughout the school holidays.
Eimeo Surf Life Saving Club is a family oriented club with membership from Nippers through to Masters and members are encouraged to take part in activities ranging from patrolling through to competing and social activities. The club also offers a number of facilities for Active Members including showers and a kitchen.
The Supporters Club is a great place to catch up with family and friends to watch the moon come up over the ocean, while sipping on your favourite drink. Visitors are welcome.
