WOMEN of BURLEIGH Winter Brunch – Burleigh Heads Mowbray Park Surf Life Saving Club

This beautiful champagne brunch is the brain chid of Tammy Payne, a part of Live 3D and a project for the SLSA Women’s Mentoring Program, bolstered by McCarthy Mentoring Australia. Designed to get more women involved from a grass roots level up to leadership positions; the morning heard from inspiring leaders as well as local contributors as what the surf club means to them, creating a robust discussion from a broad cross-section of women from the Gold Coast in presenting real-world ideas about how we challenge the status quo from merely appreciating women to empowering them to take a step into positions that interest them, fit into their already busy lives and create opportunities to see more women in SLSQ leadership roles by 2025. This is the start of a “women of surf” series of events that will be held over the season, hosted by multiple surf clubs that wish to participate. For more information go to
