Fingal Beach Surf Lifesaving Club



The Fingal Beach Surf Life Saving Club was established on August 23, 1964 when locals recognised the need for a patrolled beach following the increase in population at Fingal Bay and increase in tourists created by the addition of the caravan park.

After some discussion on which beach should be patrolled, Fingal or Zenith, the foundations for the club were established where you can find it today.

The longest-serving member at Fingal Beach, whose signature you will find on the first committee meeting minutes from 1964, is Eddy Bergsma OAM.

A patrolling member for over 50 years, Eddy dug the foundations of the original clubhouse and is still the Surfboat Captain and a Patrol Captain today. He has many tales to tell and loves a chat so keep an eye out for him around the club!


Fingal Beach is a protected beach accessed directly off Marine Drive Fingal Bay. The beach is ideal for the family to swim and surf and is just a short walk to Fingal Bay Holiday Park. Fingal Beach has a modern Clubhouse which is home to both Volunteer and Professional Lifeguards. The Club has amazing views of the ocean, National Park and coastline.
