People have been asked to wear red on Friday as a mark of respect after two lifesavers died trying to rescue a tourist who had been swept into the ocean near Port Campbell.
The funeral for Ross and Andrew Powell will be held at the Timboon hall on Friday from 11am.
Lifesaving Victoria president Paul James said the third lifesaver involved in the rescue on Easter Sunday, Phillip Younis, was expected to make a full physical recovery.
"For those who cannot make the funeral, we ask that you wear red on the day as a mark of respect to the Powell and Younis families, and to support the local community and Port Campbell Surf Life Saving Club, whose club colour is red," he said.
A spokesperson for Surf Lifesaving Victoria said people were encouraged to share photos of people wearing red and tag the club on social media.
Mr James said the club, community and Powell/Younis families had been overwhelmed by the support they have received, whether it was with observing the one minute's silence on the last day of patrol last Monday or sending personal messages.
"They have been following the social media support from local, state-wide, national and international well-wishers showing how widespread our lifesaving family extends and how deep the respect is for those who put their lives on the line for the community they serve," he said.
A donation portal has been set up through www.slsfoundation.com.au/portcampbell, where you can donate to the families of Ross and Andrew, as well as to the local and wider Port Campbell community thanks to Phillip Younis' wishes.
