Top 9 Surfing Spots in Australia
We at EarPro think that Australia is a surfer’s paradise – wouldn’t you agree? The vast variety of beaches covering the coasts of Australia make it one of the top destinations for surfers across the world.
Here are some of our favourite surf spots for you to choose from based on your surfing capabilities.
The Pass, Byron Bay
The Pass at Byron Bay in the east of the country is a spectacular place for all surfers and skill levels. This surf spot comes with some of the best breaks and long rides. The best time to head to The Pass for surfing is between April and September.
Kirra, Gold Coast
Kirra is the dream spot for advanced surfers. Here you will find great waves and powerful and heavy tubes. The best time for surfing is from March to June, but you can come here anytime from February until July for an amazing surfing experience.
This surfing spot is particularly popular among beginners and intermediate surfers. When the tide is low, we’d recommend only experienced surfers ride some waves as the rocks are quite close to the surface. The best time to try this surf spot is between February and July.
Angourie Point, New South Wales
Angourie Point is one of the more scenic surf spots in Australia as it has a beautiful national park around it. Depending on the swell size, we’d recommend this area for intermediate and advanced surfers.
Bells Beach, Victoria
This surf spot has some amazing breaks and is the perfect location for avid advanced surfers. The water can be quite chilly, so you might want to bring your wetsuit. Anytime between April and October will guarantee you a great surf experience.
Treachery Beach, Queensland
If you’re looking to get away from the crowds, Treachery Beach is the perfect place for you. It is still counted as some of the more secret surfing spots and has great waves for surfers of all levels.
Main Brak, Margaret River
Main Break is a surf spot for the adventurous, experienced and brave. Here you will find spectacular waves, hollows and bowls. Main Break should not be underestimated and we recommend wearing protective gear.
Caves, Cactus Beach
This is another great spot for experienced surfers. Waves can reach extreme heights and you will find some heavy swells here, especially in winter. The best time to surf in Caves is between April and October.
Burleigh Heads, Queensland
Burleigh Heads is a stunning location for surfers of all levels. You will get amazing point breaks and draining tubes here. Another plus: this surf spot is usually less busy compared to some of the nearby locations in Queensland.
