Beach Patrol generally consists of 2 x 4hr patrols, on a rolling 3-4 week interval. Eg. Saturday and Sunday Patrols are both broken down into AM and PM shifts of 4 hrs.
Patrolling season starts in October and goes through to April (7 mths).
Total Commitment: 56 hrs over the whole of summer! The rest of the year is yours.
On Patrol, there is a job for everyone, regardless of age, experience, fitness or beach skills. We work as team, always looking after each other. And we do like to have a laugh too!
Btw, we supply coffee/tea and biscuits for both morning and afternoon tea down on the beach!
How good is that!
Well just ask the WaveRunners (SLS jetski patrols) that seem to find us at this
time, every weekend. Water and Sunscreen are also essential items you don’t need to worry about. We’ve got you covered!
Don’t own a Beach House, don’t worry! Come spend some time on the Ladies Deck having a coffee before patrol or a cold drink afterwards and just enjoy the view.
They say Uluru changes colours during the day, well I can tell you so does Talle Creek! Have a look at some of these pictures, you’ll feel relaxed in an instant!
Trust me, we don’t just use the Ladies Deck to stare at the creek, we also like to use it to celebrate!
We have a few Members events during the year. Come and enjoy the company of like-minded people and share a few stories over a glass of wine or cold beer!
Royal Lifesaving was established in Queensland in 1905 with the charter to be responsible for Still Water and all waterways other than Surf.
In 1928, an idea, enthusiasm, determination and eager volunteers combined to form the swimming and lifesaving club we now call the Neptune Royal Life Saving Club.
In 1959, patrolling commenced at Tallebudgera Creek on the Gold Coast with a tent as the first club house. Through the determined efforts of the members, funds were raised to build a permanent club house in 1961. Thus began the world’s first all-female Life Saving Club to perform beach patrols with a permanent club house to call its own.
Now in 2019, closing in on 100 years, the members of Neptune Royal Lifesaving get to write their own pages in the rich history of this club.
Yep, you may even get to see Dolphins in the Creek. It is not uncommon during the season to see a couple of dolphins cruising into and out of the creek. They are majestic creatures.
If I was a dolphin, I reckon I’d come to Talle creek too!
Note that we love the Eagles, Pelicans and chip eating Seagulls as well.
Here is a chance to combine 2 great loves – coffee and relaxing at the beach.
Bam Bam coffee is super good! Grab a coffee, come relax and chat with friends under the big Pine tree or on the beach. It doesn’t get much better!
Neptune has a wonderful lounge training area where you can relax in your non-patrol hours.
Take a seat, stream some content on our wi-fi and relax till its beach time again. Some of our students members even like to catch up on Uni Studies via the Internet (or so they tell us…) Parking around Tallebudgera Creek can be horrendous! You don’t win ‘Best Swimming Beach in Australia’ without lots of people wanting to come check it out.
Luckily, we have free, semi-secure parking at the clubhouse. You can arrive stress free and take some pleasure in all the punters driving around for hours struggling to find a park (yes, it’s worse than a shopping centre!!)
Our membership may not be QUANTITY like some of the big name clubs on the coast, but I can vouch that they are QUALITY people!
We have a diverse range of members from 10 – 80 yo, Families and Individuals, Male and Female. They are the friendliest group of people you would want to meet. They all chip in around the club and like to have a go.
If this appeals to you, drop in and say hello. We’d love to have you on board!
