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...

Rookies

The 14 - 16 year olds are Rookies and will be expected to complete their SRC and work toward their Bronze Medallion. The emphasis with these members is preparation to become patrolling members, they will be trained in surf rescue and resusitation. There are also team building and social events planned throughout the season.
For the last few years the Rookies have gone on camp in January to gain their SRC's, Bronze medallion, and IRB crewman. These camps are looked forward to every year as we travel up the coast the Nelson Bay. Last year to save money for our major trip away, we had the Rookie camp at our very own beach and camping ground. This year? Stay tuned..
