Top 7 Surfing Spots in Australia You Need to Visit

Australia has 27,000 kilometers of coastline. As such, according to one study, they found that the country has 10,500 beaches. 

There are a lot of beaches in the country, and we really can’t visit all of these at once. So, we’re giving you a list of the top seven beaches across the country for now. In the future, you can add a few beaches on this list, too.

 

1. Manly Beach

Located in Sydney, this is one of the country’s most underrated beaches, even though it’s a favorite spot for surfing championships. A lot of people come here to surf and swim.

There has been a lot of infrastructure around the beach, including bars and restaurants. However, the sunbathing and secluded trails remain untouched.

 

2. Bell’s Beach 

Torquay, Victoria, is its home, and it’s a famous beach among surfers. It is also the host of Rip Curl Easter Pro, which is the oldest surfing competition. 

If you are looking for challenging waves, come and visit Bell’s Beach in March and October. You can also bring your family here for a vacation and, instead of surfing, you can sail, too!

 

3. Gold Coast

The most popular surf beach in Queensland, Gold Coast, is considered a gem. Many surfers consider this a home away from home because of its cozy atmosphere, long golden beach coast, and plenty of beaches to surf and relax. 

The waves here are at its best from March to May. Nonetheless, it still offers some of the best waves in the country the whole year.

 

4. The Pass

Between Clarkes Beach and Wategos, The Pass is the stretch of beach between them. Located in New South Wales, it’s a favorite surfing beach by professionals. If you’re not into surfing, you can watch people as you sit on the wide shore. You can also catch a glimpse of whales or dolphins here.

 

5. Noosa Heads

Another favorite in Queensland, Noosa Head, offers some of the most picturesque waves and breaks. The main beach stretches to 130 kilometers, so you’ve got a lot of options for your family activities, too. 

The beach has lifeguards and experienced surfers are all over the beach riding the waves. If you want to take a little break from the sun, the beach also has bars, cafes, and restaurants.

 

6. Burleigh Heads

Another favorite spot for swimmers and surfers, this is located in the southern end of Gold Coast. It also has a stretch of calm water where you can take a dip if you’re not in the mood to surf. Tourists and locals can also enjoy the sunset with a picnic basket or with bbq.

 

7. Prevelly Bay

Western Australia also cradles Prevelly Bay, which is another surfer favorite. It’s a favorite among surfers because it has swells that produce spins for up to 20 feet! This is also one of the beaches in the country where surfers wear helmets. Enjoy the beach, stay fit while surfing, and experience the thrill of kitesurfing, too!

 

Enjoy the sun, sand, and, of course, the waves now!
