Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Surf Lifesaving Club Est 1931, is the northern most club in the Hunter Branch. Our hard working volunteers patrol the beach between September and the April school holidays.

We are always looking for new active members to join our patrols. You don't have to be a super swimmer, we have specialist First Aid and Life Support roles that are beach based. For the adrenalin junkie there are jet-ski's & Inflatable Rescue Boats known as IRB's or rubber duckies. There are also many opportunities to hone your skills and compete against other clubs, Australia-wide & internationally, in events such as beach flags, sprints, surf swim, board paddling, surf ski, iron man as well as a host of relay events. For the 5 -14's we run a junior program known as Nippers. The children learn invaluable beach & surf skills that will assist in helping them move through to our senior ranks and complete their Bronze Medallion Award. Our club also makes a commitment to the Safeguarding of Children as outlined by SLSNSW.

Surf Boat Rowing/Competition continues to be an area of high interest. Since becoming an active club in this area of Surf Lifesaving competition, involvement in this team event has continued with TGHNSLSC being represented by both male and females crews in the Under 19, 23, Reserve and Masters divisions, competing at carnivals up and down the East Coast. If you're at all interested in this area of competition, please don't hesitate to contact us or drop in to the Surf Club during the season to give it a go. 

We are currently seeking interested businesses to come on board as sponsors. This sponsorship will raise the profile of your organisation in the community and give you an invaluable association with one of this country's largest and most identifiable volunteer organisations. Whether you're seeking increased patronage or an improved profile as a good corporate citizen, a relationship with TGHNSLSC has plenty to offer. We'd like to pay tribute to all of our sponsors.
