Welcome to North Barrier Branch Surf Lifesaving

North Barrier Branch is the second Northern most Branch of Surf Life Saving Queensland, established in 1936. The clubs of North Barrier Branch patrol the beaches between Sarina (near Mackay) in the south and Forrest Beach (near Ingham) in the North, in environments varying from open beaches to rocky island coves, surrounded by reef and the added uniqueness that comes with Tropical Waters.  North Barrier has over 80 years of proud history servicing the public and up-holding the Surf Life Saving Queensland vision of ‘Zero Preventable deaths in Queensland Public Waters’.
