Fairhaven is a beautiful surf beach located on the Great Ocean Road between Anglesea and Lorne. This magnificent stretch of sand and surf takes in Aireys Inlet, Fairhaven, Moggs Creek and Eastern View.
Fairhaven Surf Life saving Club has proudly provided a community service since 1957.
It all started at Fairhaven in November, 1957 when a public meeting at a church hall in Aireys Inlet made the community decision to form a local surf life saving club. This meeting was initiated by local identity Albert Suters who became the first club secretary. There was strong discussion about whether the club would be located at Aireys Inlet, near the mouth of the Painkalac Creek or at the more open beach site at Fairhaven. Fairhaven proponents won the day and the club began its service to the community located on the magnificent stretch of beach.
Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club is very proud of the community service that it provides and recognises the enormous contribution of many people throughout the years since 1957.
The club looks to continue its development and meet future challenges as it has in the past – with optimism, hard work, friendship and a united team approach.
