Skills Maintenance
This season will mark a huge shift in the way we conduct surf lifesaving and we request all active members complete their online skills maintenance ASAP. Online skills maintenance is where patrolling members will be educated and equipped with the new information they need to patrol this season. Online skills maintenance will cover more ground this season to minimise what needs to be done for physical proficiencies. 
For information on the new changes to Bronze and SRC, please see the video and info page below. 

New Curriculum info page
You should have received an email about skills maintenance if you are a patrolling member and have access via elearning in the members area. If you have any trouble or questions please email

HOUSE OF THE WEEK – 214 Whale Beach Road, Whale Beach
Ever seen pictures of Whale Beach from the 1930s? Beach houses were few and far between, yet the best sites were invariably taken; 214 Whale Beach Road would have appeared then as it does now - sitting high and proud, it's an absolute classic and one of the few 'old school' cottages still left on Sydney's favourite playground. Held by one family for over 60 years, the interiors have been extensively renovated, retaining the timeless style yet artfully blending those details with contemporary comfort. And did we mention the views?

How is the northern beaches property market right NOW ?
The COVID Pandemic has seen the 'lifestyle' factor underpinning strong sale results more than ever as people realise they can now work from anywhere and are preferring properties close to beaches & waterways, or locations that were otherwise reserved for weekenders or holiday homes. In addition, expats returning home due to the pandemic are turning their interest to Upper Northern Beaches properties.

Begging the question that if you are thinking about selling, "Why would you wait?"
For an accurate and up to date analysis of the Sydney real estate market please read our Ray White Now Property Report which is updated weekly
Kind Regards,
Ray White Prestige | Palm Beach
