Gerringong Surf Life Saving Club

Werri Beach




Gerringong Surf Club
Gerringong SLSC


Gerringong Surf Life Saving Club was established in 1976

with only 30 members and a tin shed. We now boast

120 club members and 130 nippers, with a two storey

brick clubhouse located at the southern end of Werri Beach.


Gerringong is located on the South Coast of NSW and is midway between Wollongong and Nowra.


We are situated 120 kilometers south of Sydney or 1½ hours drive from Mascot Airport and only 25 kilometers or twenty minutes south of the Albion Park Airport in Albion Park. Gerringong is a tourist spot, with numerous attractions and beautiful beaches with a country atmosphere, where the mountains meet the sea.


The beach is well exposed with slight protection in the south from the point and an offshore reef. Waves average 1.6 m in the north dropping to 1.4 m in the south, and usually maintain one bar with up to 10 rips, including a strong permanent rip against the northern headland and one along the southern rocks. The bar is usually attached between the rips, only detaching during high waves, particularly up the beach.

​Hazard Ratings: (Low 1-3, Moderate 4-6, High 7-8, Extreme 9-10)

The hazard rating refers to physical beach and surf conditions ONLY and
