Founded in 1927, the Devonport Surf Life Saving club was the first officially recognised surf club in Tasmania. Located at the iconic Mersey Bluff Plaza on Tasmania's North West coast, "The Bluff" as it is known by locals, is a popular spot for swimming, sunbathing, picnics in the park, and Surf Life Saving.

With the project commencing in the middle of January 2011, the upgrade to the club house and surrounding facilities was welcomed by surf club members and the local community with a number of family friendly sites including a new playground, BBQ facilities, public plaza and car park created as a part of the redevelopment.

In creating the versatile public area and walk way, 6,500 square metres of Adbri Masonry's Trihex and Quartz Stone pavers brought to life the architects vision of flowing waves, blending the ocean and beach environments.

In order to achieve the distinctive design, Adbri Masonry's Ulverstone plant produced the uniquely coloured Oatmeal, Salmon, Sandstone and Desert Sand pavers, which were installed in alternating layers to create the representation of flowing waves.
