Our Volunteer Lifesavers patrol Mooloolaba Main Beach from September until May, keeping our beautiful beach safe for our Mooloolaba Community.

We ask that you please keep safe and always swim between the Red and Yellow Flags.




Volunteer Patrol services operate as follows:
September – May
Weekends and Public Holidays
7.00am – 5.00pm
Over peak summer (Mid December to End January),  patrol hours are extended from 6.30am – 5.00pm.

Surf Life Saving QLD and Sunshine Coast Council Lifeguard Services Patrol Mid Week and off season, ensuring our beach is safe 365 days of the year.


All our qualified volunteer Surf Lifesavers proudly wear the internationally recognised red and yellow patrol uniforms so they are easily identified by the public and when we are performing patrol duties.

Each of our Volunteer Lifesaving members hold the minimum requirement of a Bronze Medallion.   This award teaches a range of activities in order to be able to perform all the basic requirements of a lifesaver including:

  • Safety and wellbeing,  Surf awareness and skills, Anatomy and physiology, First aid, Resuscitation (CPR), Communications,  Radio communications,  Rescue techniques,  Carries and Support, Patrol methods.

Rescue Equipment our  personnel utilise includes a wide variety of equipment to assist in patrolling our beach to accommodate different surf environments, and its many hazards.
