Avoca Beach Surf Life Saving Club patrols the beach from October through to late April each year with voluntary patrols on the weekends and public holidays.  On week days during this period the beach if patrolled by Gosford City Life Guards.

We are one of the largest and oldest Clubs on the Central Coast, with the following memberships
