Cook's Hill Life Saving and Surf Club: The First Hundred Years

Author(s): John Ramsland

History | Books about Newcastle & the Hunter

This is a graphic saga of a great community surf club. Founded in 1911, the original members hailed from Cook's Hill, a struggling working-class precinct of Newcastle. Men were involved in heavy industry, confronted on a daily basis with life-threatening situations. Several of these men volunteered to be surf lifesavers to protect members of the community from the dangers of the deep at Bar Beach, a popular local surfing spot. With modest resources, ordinary Australians began to do extraordinary things.
