The New South Wales Surf Life Saving Championships begin this weekend, running from Saturday 24th February to Sunday 11th March at Blacksmiths Beach. Coinciding with the event, an exhibition is being held at SEEN@Swansea, Living Cultures, showing the history of Swansea-Belmont, Caves Beach, Catherine Hill Bay and Redhead Surf Life Saving Clubs.
Council’s Manager Cultural Services, Jacqui Hemsley, said with 32 kilometres of coastline and four surf clubs, Lake Macquarie City is closely linked with surf life saving.
“It’s great how the Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery and the community have worked together to produce this exhibition to capture the essence of surf life saving. It’s a living – and energetic – culture that supports community safety while encouraging an active healthy lifestyle,” Ms Hemsley said.
The Lake Macquarie: Living Cultures (surf life saving) exhibition opens at 10am-3pm daily at SEEN@Swansea, located on the first floor mezzanine at The Swansea Centre, Pacific Highway, Swansea. Entry is FREE!
The exhibit ends on Sunday 1 April 2018.
