The Point Leo SLSC has served the community loyally since 1955. In the last decade alone the club has performed approximately 354 First Aids, 5324 Preventative Actions and 33 Rescues with over 50,000 patrol hours completed. The club has a rich history of adapting and changing to best serve the community.
In consultation with our members and the local community the club has been working on the Point Leo Hub Project. This Project is our look into the future for the club ensuring it continues to improve and provide the best lifesaving services for this coming season and the next 20 years.
These consultations highlighted the need for…
- Redevelopment of the patrol/first aid rooms allowing improved ambulance access
- Moving the location of the rescue craft to the beach side of the club allowing for more rapid access and without the safety concerns of crossing the public and member access paths
- Expansion of both the multi-purpose space downstairs and the upstairs function room for more flexible training areas and community social areas
- Improved bathroom/change room facilities for members and the public
Designed to save lives as well as the environment.
As part of the consultation process Cox Architecture have responded with a staged rebuild that addresses the priority areas.

We have also worked with Lifesaving Victoria and its principles of sustainability with their Lifesaving Victoria Clubhouse of the Future. All of these principles have been incorporated into the new concepts.
Stage 1 comprising a new bathroom, change room and kitchen area is currently underway. The cost of the kitchen upgrade is being fully funded by a generous contribution of $47,000 from the Balnarring & District Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.
