Venus Bay SLC

Venus Bay Surf Life Saving Club was formed in 1961 and is a member of Surf Life Saving Victoria.

The club was formed as a result of two meetings, with the first being an interest meeting held at Tarwin Lower Memorial Hall. On the 24th September 1961 the inaugural meeting was held at Tarwin Lower Hotel and Venus Bay SLSC was officially formed.

To date Venus Bay SLSC has had three club houses. The original clubhouse was built 100 meters from beach-head at Surf Drive, Venus Bay, in 1962, with the assistance of a donation from the Van Cleef Foundation. In 1970 a new clubhouse overlooking the beach at Surf Drive was opened. This clubhouse remained until 1997 when a new clubhouse was erected as a result of funds raised by the club members and support from the Victorian Government 21st Century Lifesaving Fund.

The new club house was built further back due to new regulations from Parks Victoria and predictions of sand dune erosion in future years. The clubhouse is now situated at the top of Surf Drive and provides equipment storage and maintenance, first aid facilities, bunk house facilities, training area/function room (200 people seated), change rooms and showers, radio room, kitchen, kiosk, administration office and a radio room with communication links to Surf Life Saving Victoria and Police Marine Rescue.
