Community News / Events

Mackay Surf Life Saving Club made the decision to postpone our Annual Australia Day Beach Party. We understand that this Annual Event is popular throughout our community and attracts high numbers to celebrate which is why this decision has been made. The Health & Safety of our Members and the Mackay Public are our Number 1 priority. Mackay Harbour will still have an active patrol on the beach on this day overlooking the Safety of the community. We will look at holding a similar public event later in the year Mackay Surf Life Saving Club Management Committee

As a family-owned business, we understand the importance of investing in our communities.
The past year has been challenging for so many and that’s why we’re proud to be able to give back with the donation of an adjustable surf ski Mackay Surf Life Saving Club to enhance club members’ performance during training sessions and competitions

Congratulations to Mackay Surf Life Saving Club, the most recent winner of the I Fly Mackay $1,000, Community Grant 👏

Mackay Surf Life Saving Club conducts volunteer patrols on weekends and public holidays from September to May. Last season they provided 2,309 patrol hours, performed 335 preventative actions, and administered first aid to 24 beachgoers.

The Club plans to use the grant funds to subsidize the registration and training for 10 members ($100pp) to complete their Bronze Medallion training.

Applications are now open for the next round of grant funding. If you are a local not-for-profit group or business looking to fund a specific project, event or equipment purchase we encourage you to apply. For further information, please visit
