The Altona Life Saving Club is a non-profit organisation that is run solely by volunteers. It is from the generous support from sponsorship, donations and grants that we are able to continue our good work on the beach. We are grateful to all our supporters that have financially assisted the club. It is with their help that we continue to provide a safe beach for swimmers, an education program for all interested in learning more about surf safety, and a competitive program for the young and the young at heart. If you or your company would like to support the ALSC, please contact us for details on how we can help to maximize your exposure.
Altona Beach forms the southern boundary of the town of Altona, with the Esplanade paralleling the beach.The Altona Railway Station is located 500 m north of the beach, and the beach is crossed by the 300 m long Altona Pier. The beach runs roughly east-west for 3 km from the point at Frazer Reserve, past the town to the western drainage channel, called Laverton Creek. Most facilities are located near the pier and lifesaving club. There are also picnic areas in foreshore reserves at either end of the beach.The beach is widest near the pier, but narrows west of the groyne, which is located 100 m past the pier. Intertidal and subtidal sand flats front the beach, requiring a long wade to reach deep water. (Melway Ref: 54, H12)
