Etty Bay SLSC
Through extreme weather, a club shines
Etty Bay SLSC is nestled on the edge of the forested slopes of the Moresby Range National Park, one hundred kilometres south of Cairns.
The club was damaged by both Cyclone Larry and Cyclone Yasi, so the exterior needed some attention. Sticking to their original colour scheme, a crisp white (Dulux Southern Alps) was used for most of the surface and the trimmings were highlighted in a rich blue (Dulux matched to Colorbond® Deep Ocean). To protect the club as much as possible from further extreme weather conditions, Dulux Weathershield Heat Reflect paint was used.
“The clubhouse is very exposed to the elements, and being only thirty metres from the beach means we face the brunt of nature’s force,” said Brian McElhinney, Club President. “The club’s importance to the local community means we strive to look after it as carefully as possible and participating in the Dulux Surf Club Project has contributed enormously to that effort.”
The club was kindly repainted by volunteers from Variety, the children’s charity.
