North Beach Recreation & Bowling Club began as an idea from a few locals who wanted somewhere they could go for a fun game of bowls and of course a cold beer afterwards.Work began on a spare patch of ground in May 1967 with all the labour for the project being volunteered by a handful of local men and women. The liquor licence for the premises was granted in November 1969 and in the first seven months of trading a profit of $6427.24 was returned. Almost fifty years on and the Club is still a great place to visit, relax and enjoy.
