Club History

The Club now known as the Floreat Surf Life Saving Club was first formed by a band of young men in 1947 under the name of North City Surf Life Saving Club.

Prior to 1947, members of the City of Perth club occasionally patrolled Floreat Beach, then known as Wembley or North City Beach. The members misbehaving or being slack in carrying out club duties did this patrolling as a punishment detail - City members called it the Sahara.
