Coledale Beach Holidays

The surf club operates a small and unique grassy campsite that borders right onto the golden sand. Coledale beach is beautifully sandwiched between the rolling blue surf of the pacific and the rolling green tree canopy of the Illawarra escarpment. read more...

Training put into practice for rookies

Three cadet surf lifesavers put their training into practice for the first time to save a young boy from the surf at Coledale on Sunday afternoon.

Sixteen-year-old Aaron Dark and mates Riley Carney and Alex Smith, both 15, rescued the 10-year-old boy who got caught in a rip off Sharkeys Beach about 3.30pm.

The young surf lifesavers were carrying out a "roving patrol" at the unpatrolled beach when they saw people on the beach waving wildly to them to alert their attention to the unfolding drama in the water.

Well done guy's :-)
