Aussies com­ing back to the west

Stirling Times - - News -

AF­TER a suc­cess­ful run at Scar­bor­ough ear­lier this year, the Aus­tralian Surf Life Sav­ing Cham­pi­onships are re­turn­ing to WA in 2022.

Scar­boro Surf Life Sav­ing Club will again hope to host the na­tional event.

Premier Mark McGowan said the Aussies at­tracted more than 8500 vis­i­tors to Scar­bor­ough in April, who spent $15.8 mil­lion dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

“The Aussies is a per­fect ex­am­ple of the type of mass par­tic­i­pa­tion event we’re aim­ing to at­tract to WA,” he said.

“We’re hop­ing to see an­other great turnout and an even big­ger boost to the econ­omy when the cham­pi­onships re­turn in 2022.”

An ex­act lo­ca­tion has not been se­lected for the cham­pi­onships but Stir­ling Mayor Mark Ir­win was hope­ful it would re­turn to Scar­bor­ough, which also hosted the 2014 event.
