Spearfishing and Underwater Hockey - South East Queensland

About us

Our club is a full and active member of the AUFQ and AUF with roughly 50 paid up members from across South East Queensland.

We participate in Spearfishing and Underwater Hockey.

We hold monthly meetings at the Palm Beach Olympic Swimming Pool on Throwers Drive, Palm Beach. Meetings are held on the first Thursday at 7:00pm every month.

Spearfishing activities are run every weekend, providing the weather is kind.

Our Underwater Hockey team is the most active in Queensland and we play every Tuesday and Wednesday nights at a cost of $5.00 per night.
