Australia boasts over 60,000 km of coastline, hence, narrowing down your choices to find the best surf locations is a tedious task. Listed below are surf towns creating the most hype!


Central Coast – NSW

Central Coast is located halfway between Sydney and Newcastle; as such it is a favoured destination for day trippers. However, the real reason Central Coast is a popular surfer destination can be attributed to the following. Avalon Beach; located 45kms from Sydney the beach offers both the beginner and professional surfer some excellent breaks, which longboarders, especially, cannot resist. Ben Player is one of the areas local products, and well, any surfer worth his or her salt, knows how epic that is. There is a beach food kiosk open from 7 am for a good brekky and a surf lounge which remains open until the wee hours of 2 am.


Exmouth – WA

Exmouth is best loved for verdant Ningaloo Reef, and the thrill of whale watching; but the serious surfer knows the region offers challenging waves and a stunning coastline for anyone willing to jump on a board and enjoy the sensation of skimming over the waves. There too you will come across a café for breakfast and a restaurant for evening cuisine; kicking back with a cool beer and enjoying some live music.


Yamba – NSW

Yamba offers world famous breaks, and picture postcard perfect surroundings. Head over to Turner Beach, where you can enjoy some of the best left-hand breaks around the northern end and rights at the southern edge. If you are a beginner, check out the Yamba-Angourie surf school, where patient and expert instructors will have you skimming the waves in next to no time. The most popular spot is Angourie Point which is a right break, made famous by legendary surfer Nat Young.

The Sunshine Coast
