Tamarama Beach is located between Bondi and Bronte and is one of Australia’s most dangerous patrolled beaches. It is a tiny, peaceful beach loved by local residents and sun worshippers, most of whom would like to keep this paradise a secret. Surfers, body boarders and swimmers are all regulars on the beach. The surf can be tricky with a decent rip on most days.
The beach is patrolled on summer weekends (October to April) by dedicated teams of volunteer lifesavers who are proud of its safety record. Around 160 active Members participate in patrols as well as support the Club. Members skill base and physical condition are continuously upgraded with training to ensure the beach is safely patrolled. Activities include: IRB (Inflatable Rescue Boat), TOSS (Tamarama Ocean Swim Squad), surf ski, and surf boats.
The Clubhouse is situated on the north side of the beach with spectacular views of the surf and down the coast. Loyal Members enjoy the charm of the Club and we encourage you to come and join up. Members of other clubs wishing to join can transfer to Tamarama SLSC.
A Way of Life: a film by Tamarama SLSC
The launch of the film on Thursday 17 July was a wonderful event. Many of our Life Members, along with their family and friends joined Club members and the community for a fantastic night at the Randwick Ritz Cinema. The film is the end product of a project to capture Life Members memories and stories for posterity.
The spirit of community, camaraderie and courage at Tamarama Beach – one of Australia’s most dangerous and loved beaches – is now available on DVD (Blue-Ray pending). Go to our online shop to order your copy.
There is a heap of information including the trailer, t&c’s around hosting a screening, and background to the making of the film at Club Stories. For information on the broader Heritage Project go to AboutUsHeritage.
