Club Overview

Situated on a fifty kilometer stretch of Auckland's rugged west coast, Muriwai is renowned for it's stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and its sparkling black sand. The Muriwai Volunteer Lifeguard Service found its origins in 1948 after a series of near tragedies encouraged the local community to form a lifesaving club. For over sixty years Muriwai lifeguards have patrolled this isolated paradise, preventing injury and loss of life on one of Auckland's most popular beaches. 2012 Northern Region Innovation of the Year - work with Unitec 2012 Northern Region IRB Championships winner 2012 SLSNZ Innovation of the Year winners 2015 Rescue of the Year - rescue at Muriwai for the rescue of a surfer stuck in the caves near the Gannet colony.
