Our History

85 Years and more....

Devonport Surf Life Saving Club was founded in 1927. Devonport became the first officially recognised Tasmanian surf club when it affiliated with the national controlling body in Sydney during 1929. In 1930 the Devonport, Burnie and Ulverstone Clubs formed the Tasmanian Branch of the Surf Life Saving Association of Australia. The first interclub carnival was held at the Devonport Bluff on 15th February 1930.
