Here in the Hunter Region our waves and beaches are our lifeblood. They bring so much enjoyment to our day to day lives. Not only do we have the pleasure of numerous National Parks along our coastline, we are also privileged to have one of only 9 World Surfing Reserves across Australia, Merewether Beach.
The ethical and sustainable management of our coastlines is the right and responsibility of every individual and/or business that uses it. As a community, we must ensure that this remains true.
Surfrider Foundation Hunter Region is made up of passionate and dedicated surfers and beach goers that wish to form a voice for our community. Together, with your support we can ensure the health of our beaches and waves will be maintained for generations to come. If you're interested in joining the Hunter Region branch, please contact Simon Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0431 484 408.
