Surf Life Saving Queensland runs the community based Little Lifesavers program at several locations across Queensland including the Townsville Riverway and Strand Rockpool, as well as Bluewater Lagoon in Mackay.

Running in Queensland since 1993, the Little Lifesavers program is a great introduction for children aged five to 11 to surf lifesaving without having to travel to the beach or join a surf life saving club. Our highly skilled surf lifesavers will guide your children through a structured program where students will obtain the Surf Life Saving Australia Junior Activities award relevant to their age.

Throughout the program, children will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range games, sports, and educational activities which are all designed to slowly build their confidence in the water and teach them how to stay safe at the beach. Through this participants are also introduced to some of the basic principles of surf safety such as general rescue techniques, first aid and, if nothing else, these are vital skills they can take with them for life.
