6. WE HAVE THE BEST NATURAL TRAINING FACILITIES ON THE GC
Neptune Lifesaving Club is surrounded by some of the best and most beautiful training facilities around.
Doing laps of the crystal clear saltwater Talle Creek is surely better than a crowded chlorinated 25m pool in suburbia. Enjoy looking at schools of fish rather than a black line!
The GC walkpath stretches for miles and miles to the north, highlighted by the spectacular Burleigh Mountain. 4km return to Burleigh and 8km return to Miami Mountain. Or if you prefer the beach, head south to Currumbin Creek.
Gold Coast Highway is frequented by many cyclists in the early hours. If you are a bit more adventurous then there is always the climb up to Springbrook and magnificent Best of All Lookout.
The flat waters of Talle Creek are the perfect place to hone your surf craft skills, whether a board, kayak or Stand-up Paddle Board (SUP). The small waves inside the mouth are perfect for beginners while Burleigh or Tallebudgera Surf Beaches are close by for the more advanced.
Ever wanted to get into Lifesaving but didn’t enjoy sitting on an open beach getting hammered by a howling South-Easter and dumping waves. Talle Creek is a great environment to learn all the skills of Lifesaving on a wind protected beach and flat water.
Do note, while there are no waves in the patrol area we do have our own dangers to be wary of. The creek is Tidal and the currents can move quickly. However, if done safely, the shoreline is never far away.
Got a boat licence, but don’t have a boat? Well we’ve got 2 Inflatable Rescue Boats (IRBs) and they are brand new!!
Neptune Lifesaving Club has just taken possession of two Zodiac Milpro Rescue Boats (world class). These boats are an integral part of our rescue equipment. If you’d like to learn how to use them, we can show you how!
Whether you are on the Beach, at Home or just going about your daily business, you just never know when you might be called upon to save someone’s life. We can teach you and your family the skills that will be with you a lifetime (they never get old !)
We have got access to some of the best Trainers on the GC.
Whether it be Lifesaving, Beach Safety, Swimming, IRB or Board/SUP we can help you improve your skills.
Don’t backchat our IRB coach as he knows boats. And he knows these boats inside & out because he was heavily involved in the design of them with the French SAS of all people.
