Deck Bar NOW OPEN
Open to the Public:
Friday from 4PM
Available for Function Hire
Welcome to Yeppoon SLSC
The Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club volunteer Surf Life Savers are once again patrolling Main Beach at Yeppoon for extended hours of 8am to 6pm until the end of January 2018.
We have come to the end of an era in a couple of ways in the last few weeks.
Firstly, Tall Poppy Catering have taken over the upstairs area of the YSLSC Clubhouse & will be commencing business in the next week or so. They will be working up to full operation over the next six months but Speed’s Deck Bar will still be opening at the usual times & function bookings can still be made via the “Enquire about booking” button on this page. Please support Tall Poppy Catering in this endeavour as it will continue to assist the Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club in it’s role for safer beaches & education.
Secondly, our beloved Ron “Speed” Harding passed away not long before Christmas. He has been a constant sight on the Yeppoon beach for 67 years & a Life Member of Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club, Wide Bay Capricorn Branch, Queensland Surf Life Saving and Surf Life Saving Australia. He will be sadly missed yet fondly remembered.
At this time of year, we would like to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas & a safe & happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you all on the beach & at Speed’s Deck Bar in 2018.

Here for You
Located in the heart of down town Yeppoon, the Yeppoon Surf Lifesaving Club can be found on the forefront of the main beach. Established in 1926, YSLSC promotes its motto of videre et facere “to see is to do”.
Keeping You Safe
Known for its safe environment the Yeppoon’s Main Beach is enjoyed by many locals and visitors to the Capricorn Coast. The popular beach is patrolled by Yeppoon SLSC volunteer lifesavers on weekends and public holidays from mid-September to May, with full time lifeguards patrolling during school holidays.
Doing Our Best
YSLSC prides itself in competing at state and national competitions in all levels of surf competition including beach and water events, boat rowing, champion lifesaver and patrol competitions. However, the main focus of the club is keeping the beach safe for the public and junior members.
For The Family
Well known as a family club, Yeppoon SLSC boasts having generations of families participating in and filling different roles within the club, including nippers, patrolling members and life members.
Come and Relax
Recent improvements to our Clubhouse have seen a new deck constructed to the eastern aspect of the existing building. This is proving very popular with both club members and the public. A Friday afternoon with a cool drink in hand enjoying the views over our shore – what a great way to unwind after a busy week. Come and join us from 4pm onward.
For All Ages
Senior members enjoy regular handicap events held on Sundays. The well coordinated nippers program incorporates both team and personal development and provides opportunity for children to compete at various levels. The program is conducted during the Surf Lifesaving patrolling season and is held each Sunday morning commencing at 9 am.
