The Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Club was established in June 1965 at a meeting held at the Freemasons Hotel, Gympie.
This meeting established a committee consisting of a chairman, secretary, treasurer and 14 committee members.
The joining fee was set at 1 pound 10. Initial fundraising efforts included the raffle of a suckling pig, and a dance at the Veteran’s Hall. The Widgee Shire Council (now Gympie Regional Council) was a major instigator of the establishment of the Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Club.
The club arranged its first bronze medallion course with the help from Noosa Surf Life Saving Club, and during the training the original clubhouse, the old school building at Tamaree, was transported to its existing site.


The Rainbow Beach Surf Club is located on one of the Eastern Seaboard’s most prime pieces of real estate. Overlooking the stunning white sand bay and rolling surf of Rainbow Beach, the clubhouse boasts unobstructed views to Double Island Point in the south and north to World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

The surf club is a great venue to catch up with old friends or meet new ones, with plenty of room to mingle, excellent friendly service and great value for money.

Our fully covered, sheltered decks are the ideal place to relax at any time of year, but especially during whale watching season which runs from July to November. Imagine the thrill of spotting a passing humpback mother and calf, on their annual migration to Antarctica.
