Toowoon Bay Surf Life Saving Club is situated on perhaps one of the most beautiful and scenic sections of the New South Wales Coastline. Toowoon Bay is located about 90kms or 1 hour 30 minutes drive north of Sydney, Australia. Toowoon Bay and its environs of Blue Bay to the north and Little Bay to the south are part of a magnificient stretch of coastline that falls within the Wyong Shire. Toowoon Bay is just south of the famous tourist centre of The Entrance and a stones throw from the spectacular Tuggerah Lakes.
Toowoon Bay beach is approximately 1 kilometre in length and is renowned as a safe beach because of the protection afforded by natural land formations to the north and south. The rocky points at the northern and southern ends of the bay together with the natural curve of the shoreline, provide for an expansive and well-protected bay. For the experienced surfers, a short walk or easy paddle to the points at Blue Bay, Toowoon Bay or Little Bay provides the opportunity to engage in some great surfing. For the inexperienced surfers or swimmers, the waves within the bay are less demanding and provide the opportunity for families to enjoy the experience
