Hunter Region Branch

Hi Everyone.  We’re only a little branch, but we have lots of fun!

We base our surf days on the Swansea Penisula at Caves Beach utilizing the Caves Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. They are wonderful people & we have some great days there.  The Club often helps our less mobile guys get down to the water & we can’t thank them enough for their continued help.  We’ve been there for a lot of years now, & we love coming back. 

We want to thank all our volunteers, supporters & of course the participants and their carers for making our surf days in the Hunter such wonderful days. We all get such a buzz out of them (or is it just the sausage sangers?). Well, maybe you’ll have to turn up to find out for yourself!

Hope to see you soon.
