Our volunteer lifesavers have been patrolling Phillip Island's most popular beach, Smiths Beach, for several years, without an observation tower, first aid room or shelter from inclement weather. With approved and permitted architect's plans and a builder ready to roll, we're reaching out to Phillip Island community and visitors to help us keep Smiths Beach an enjoyable tourist destination.
Find out how you can help build Smiths Beach Rescue base.

Vigilance and service. I remember learning at my bronze camp that the Surf Life Saving motto is vigilance and service. This season has seen an abundance of vigilance and service from Woolamai members. Helping to provide a safe aquatic environment is the core of what we do. Our members have volunteered thousands of hours of their time to keep the public safe, develop their skills and teach the lifesavers of tomorrow. We have completed some major rescues that helped save lives. The efforts of our members during these rescues have been widely commended by many external organisations.
