Surf Life Saving NT is a volunteer-based not-for-profit community service organisation and is the peak agency for coastal safety in the NT.
Surf lifesavers are highly trained volunteers and their prime responsibility is to prevent drowning and injury at the beach and the surrounding open waters where people love to swim and enjoy various forms of aquatic recreation such as boating, fishing, wind surfing, kite surfing and water skiing.
Surf Life Saving NT is a registered provider of Australian Lifeguard Services – the largest provider of professional lifeguards in Australia.
Junior Activities (Nippers & Cadets)
Every year around 60,000 boys and girls learn essential lifesaving and self-survival skills at their local Surf Club and its no different in the NT. Membership is booming as young members, aged 5-14, enjoy a wide range of lifesaving, sporting, environmental and social activities. Our Junior Activities are run by experienced surf lifesavers and qualified parents. Its not uncommon for the whole family to be involved!
Surf Lifesavers conduct training courses in lifesaving, first aid and emergency care as well as outdoor recreational activities for schools and community groups
