Council 2018/19 Summer Lifeguard Program 

During the summer school holidays, Bega Valley Shire Council contracts Australia Lifeguard Service (ALS) to patrol eight beaches across the Shire.

Season dates are from the beginning of the school holidays for Horseshoe Bay (Bermagui), Tathra Beach, Pambula Beach and Aslings Beach (Eden). Season dates for Camel Rock and the three Merimbula Beaches (Short Point, Bar Beach and Main Beach) commence on Boxing Day. 

Council would also like to acknowledge the hard work of the Tathra Chamber of Commerce, and wider Tathra Community, who fundraise each year to extend the provision of the lifeguard service at Tathra beach through to the last weekend of February.

This year ALS have provided the Tathra February Extension at no cost in order to support the Tathra Community
