About the Towradgi Surf Life Saving Club

Towradgi Surf Life Saving Club is located approx 5kms north of the Wollongong CBD. 
Towradgi Beach extends 3kms from Towradgi Creek in the north to Fairy Meadow Beach in the south.


The word 'Towradgi' is a corruption of the Dharawal aboriginal word 'Kow-radgi', meaning 'Guardian of the Sacred Stones'.

The Sacred Stones are believed to be the black rocks surrounding Towradgi pool.



Towradgi Surf Life Saving Club was established on July 12, 1947 and built by four Corrimal SLSC exmembers:
Jack Wilson (Deceased), Jim Edwards (Deceased), Eric Blain and Joe Nubley (Deceased). 

Towradgi Surf Life Saving Club is a family oriented club with membership from Nippers through to Masters.
Members are encouraged to take part in activities ranging from patrolling through to competing and social activities. 
The club also offers a number of facilities for Active Members including complimentary gym access and to the function room when available.


We’re currently looking for volunteers to participate in regular beach patrols from September to April.


Towradgi SLSC members lead a healthy and active lifestyle, and have been an integral part of the local community for over 70 years!
This is a fantastic way to meet new people and form new friendships.
