Westpac Banking Corporation has been the major sponsor of the Service since its inception in 1973 making it the longest corporate community partnership in Australia. The helicopter services run by Surf Life Saving Australia are well known throughout Australia as "Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopters".
Life Saver Rescue Helicopters can be found in Sydney, Newcastle, Moruya on the NSW south coast, Lismore, Tamworth, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.
Westpac’s support contributes to providing a valuable and viable free service to the community. They are committed to building strong partnerships with individuals and organisations to reflect their values and help create better futures for all Australians.
Westpac Life Saver Helicopters are seen as an extension of the banks activities - rather than simply a sponsorship.
We thank Westpac for their continued support.
