Never been to a beach side surf club where they wont let you in with out scanning your drivers license. We are all warned about identity fraud and yet forced to do this. They either attract a bad crowd or the bureaucrats have taken control....More

The venue and location is great. The meals are very typically surf/RSL club like. Don’t expect anything else. Great to be able to watch multiple tv’s given the Commonwealth Games were on.

Hi Bailee W, Thank you for taking the time to comment about our Club. You are right that parking can be tight although there's a major car park around 100m from the Club off 7th Avenue. Best wishes from us all.

Sitting out on the back deck overlooking the beach is an awesome way to spend a little down time while on the coast. Palmy is one of the best.....the food is great and the view is unsurpassed.
