Alcohol & Liquor Licensing

Red Beach SLSC operates under a Club Licence and so alcohol may be sold to club members only.  Members may sign guests into the club using the visitors book, so that they may purchase alcohol.  The member is then responsible for the behaviour of their guests at all times.
If your event is going to be attended by largely non-members, we will need to apply for a Special Licence on your behalf 20 working days prior to the event, enabling us to sell to all your guests.  The cost for this is $65 for under 100 guests and $210 for over 100.  This is payable at the time of booking.

Our Club Licence allows us to sell alcohol until 12.00pm and then requires the premises to be completely vacated by 12.30am. 
In accordance with the terms of our Club Liquor Licence, no alcohol may be brought into the club at any time by the hirer, their staff or guests.  Any alcohol found on site before or during a function, which has not been supplied by Red Beach SLSC, will be confiscated and disposed of by the bar staff.


The Club has a sound system which caters for music to be played via a laptop/phone connected to our system.  We are also a great venue for having a band or a DJ. Your band/DJ is welcome to come in before your function to set up and do a sound check, however access to the club needs to be arranged prior with the Bar Manager.


Our stunning beach location and ability to manage large or small numbers makes our club rooms ideal for weddings! You can get married on the gorgeous private grass area on the north side of the club, on the deck or on the beach.  Please see the forms below for prices and further information.  For a consultation please contact the Bar Manager.

We are a fully functioning Surf Life Saving Club, meaning that from Labour Weekend until Easter, there are lifeguard patrols based at the club on Saturdays from 10am until 5pm.  If the weather is not good, they will need to use the office end of the clubrooms and adjacent deck until the end of the patrol at 4pm/5pm.

18th & 21 st Birthday Parties

We do not, under any circumstances, allow the club to be hired for 18th birthday parties or 21st birthday parties.
