The Shellharbour club was formed in 1936. Apart from a

short enforced break during World War 2, it has served

the local community continuously from that time. During

this period of service the club has established itself as

one of the principal surf clubs in regional New South Wales.


Over the years members have turned in outstanding performances in rescue, competition and community service. Usually we have over 350 junior members and approximately 250 senior patrolling members. In 2013/14 our membership total is over 800 including associate and nipper parent members.


Within the actual Shellharbour is a 60m long stretch of protected sand. Two attached breakwaters and a 40 m wide entrance protect the cluster of moored boats and the beach, with conditions usually calm inside. The Harbour was a thriving little port from the 1850s until the railway came in the 1880s. It recreational amenities were enhanced with the first baths built in 1895. Today the harbour is surrounded by a foreshore reserve with parks and picnic facilities and the shops of Shellharbour behind. A rock pool is also located on the rocks just south of the Harbour wall. This is a lovely spot for a picnic and swimming in the rock pool.
