Everything revolves around our core business of providing beach safety and a vital community service and playing a fundamental role in building healthy communities and better health outcomes for South Australians of all ages.

Our Club is a meeting place, a training college, a fitness and recreation centre, an emergency evacuation centre, conference facilities, along with encouraging physical activity and teaching important Australian values:

  • Giving back to the community.
  • Family
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Meeting challenges
  • Pursuing excellence

Surf Lifesaving is a lifestyle

The exact date that a Lifesaving Club was first formed and commenced operation at Brighton Beach is unclear. Formal record keeping dates back to 1952, but anecdotal history suggests that the club was formed around 1925/26.

Today Brighton is one of the largest, and most successful, clubs in South Australia. We pride ourselves on being a friendly, relaxed and family based Surf Lifesaving club. We are 100% administered and operated by volunteers.

Active membership provides opportunities for members to learn and develop a range of skills whilst contributing to the well being of the community. We invite you to join us and become part of our history.

Brighton Surf Life saving Club welcomes SA kids to Come ‘N Try Nippers

Few activities typify the Australian “have a go” culture more than Nippers.

Children are outdoors, getting fit, making friends, having fun and learning skills that one day they may even use to save a life!

To encourage kids to give it a go, we are holding open Come’n’Try days.


If your child is aged between 5 and 13 and loves the water, we’d love to see you!

There is no cost to come and try… just turn up on the day at 1.00 pm!
