Surf Life Saving Queensland will receive $17 million over three years from the State Government to help promote aquatic safety and protect the public at all Queensland beaches.
The organisation is one of the largest in Australia with more than 30,000 members in 58 clubs, and six branches in Queensland alone.
Minister for Fire and Emergency Services Mark Ryan said the funding would “ensure the safety of our beautiful beachside communities for residents and holidaymakers alike, as well as safeguarding the organisation’s sustainability into the future.”
