A surf club renowned for its great ocean views will be closed during renovations that are expected to breathe new life into the venue.

The Sunshine Beach Surf Club will be shut from June 10 until June 21 for maintenance and a refresh.

The club’s general manager Julie Strudwick said the revamp would provide visitors with a better experience.

“The harsh environment that we operate in means that we need to continue our maintenance work,” she said.

“Although we have been trading in the new building for only four years, we want to ensure that the club remains fresh, lively and a destination for our members and guests.

“The club closure ensures we can get the work done quickly and with no interruption to our patrons’ experience.

“We want to ensure that our patrons get the best possible experience every time they come, so to close and do the renovations enables this to happen quickly and without interruption to their visit to the club, ensuring the best experience every time.”

The club stated that it would introduce some exciting new elements while addressing necessary maintenance tasks. The work to be undertaken involves painting, lighting and updates to some of the furniture.

“We have been working with JMV Design to add a fresh, vibrant feel to the club,” Ms Strudwick said.

The club has been a cornerstone of the community for the past 40 years and since the new building opened in early 2020 it has become a popular destination for almost 25,000 visitors every month, as well as a frequent destination for 8000 members.

It’s renowned as a venue where patrons can enjoy meals and drinks while sitting on the deck watching the whales go by.

The club also offers social events, a function space for weddings and private functions.

“We are proud to be part of the community and everything we do helps to ensure no lives are lost between the flags on Sunshine Beach,” Ms Strudwick said.

“These renovations will ensure that the club remains a vital and dynamic part of the community.”

To celebrate the reopening, the club has planned a special event on Friday, June 21, from 3pm. It will include free live entertainment, giveaways and activities for kids and adults.
