Learn more about water safety and lifesaving skills with the Oasis's Outback Lifesaver program this January!

Outback Lifesavers has been developed to provide children in and across regional / remote areas and communities near inland waterways with an active aquatic participation experience using inland waterways and local pools.

For age groups from U7s to U12s, it presents an opportunity for young lifesavers to develop their skills and understanding of safety around water, particularly inland waterways – plus a whole lot of fun!

  • Increased aquatic skills and proficiencies in a range of aquatic environments.
