Celebrate the 12-Year Anniversary of Freshwater and Manly Beach as a World Surf Reserve this weekend with the wonderful Save The Waves community event with ocean-side fun for young and old.

Freshwater Beach has long been recognised as the ‘birthplace of surfing in Australia’. This Sunday 10th March marks the 12-year anniversary of Freshwater & Manly beach being a dedicated World Surf Reserve (WSR), which recognises the historical, cultural, and environmental values of famous surfing beaches. The reserve incorporates Freshwater Beach and all of Manly – from Queenscliff to North Steyne to Manly and Fairy Bower.

To commemorate this twelve-year anniversary, Surfrider Foundation Australia, Harbord Hotel and Freshwater Brewing Company, are joining forces and putting on a community event to help raise funds for Surfrider Foundation Australia, whose mission is to protect oceans, waves and beaches.

The day kicks-off at 4 pm with a community beach clean-up, organised by Surfrider Foundation Australia, where everyone young and old is invited to help clean-up Freshwater Beach. Post-clean-up the party then starts at the Harbord Hotel. All are invited for some snacks and cracking tunes with special guest Hein Cooper performing, all while sinking a few cans of Freshie Pils by local Freshwater Brewing Company. Tickets are $10, with all proceeds going to Surfrider Foundation Australia (please click through to register).
