The Burnie City Council and Burnie Surf Life Saving Club are excited to announce that the Burnie Surf Club redevelopment works are now complete.

The two story extension to the Surf Club building, designed by JAWS Architects, includes an increased Surf Club Room and Function Space, new kitchen and bar, increased storage area and an accessible toilet and lift.

Burnie Surf Life Saving Club President Stuart Paine said “I would like to thank the Burnie City Council for their commitment to our club, we are looking forward to using the expanded space which will now allow the club to host events and make the wonderful facilities accessible to people of all-abilities in the community.

“We have a lot of work to complete this week; moving fridges, installing our honour boards and generally just getting the club back into working order, we train all year round so are lucky that we have many hands on deck to help with the move.

“The bar will be open to the public from 5pm every Friday evening from this week forward. We will use the coming weeks to make sure everything is running smoothly, and will begin to take bookings for venue hire after the official opening on Friday 7 June.”

Burnie City Council Mayor Steve Kons said “I would like to thank Fairbrother Pty Ltd, Jaws Architects and Council staff for their work on another important community project. The redevelopment project has delivered a first class facility for the rate payers of Burnie.”

“Council would also like to thank major stakeholders; Burnie Surf Life Saving Club, Bayviews and Fish Frenzy for their cooperation and patience during the construction works.

“I now look forward to the commencement of the second part of the waterfront project which is the construction of an elevated boardwalk on the Eastern bund, which is part of the original Waterfront Master Plan.”
