Australia is world-renown for their surfing. Some of the best breaks and best surfers have come out of the land of Oz. Here are six of the best surf spots Australia has to offer:
The Superbank – Gold Coast, Queensland
This spot is extremely popular, but the wave is worth it. It could very well be one of the longest, if not the longest, waves in the world. It’s also perhaps the most consistent and most hollow waves in the world as well.
Bells Beach – Great Ocean Road, Victoria
This iconic surf spot isn’t just all name and no substance — the break at Bells is heavy and bowly. Swells from the Southern Ocean slow down and steepen over the shallow reefs to produce outstanding, and very large, surf. Bells is the home of Australian surfing.
Lennox Head – North Coast, New South Wales
This is a beautiful right point break that’s gaining a lot of popularity in recent years. Getting out to the lineup is challenging due to the rocky shoreline, but this fast, long, and hollow wave is well worth it.
Noosa Heads – Sunshine Coast, Queensland
Noosa is a perfect spot for longboarders and beginners who will die over the long, easy-rolling waves. With long waves that will make your legs burn, Noosa is world-class.
North Narrabeen – Northern Beaches, New South Wales
The 6 kilometer coastal corridor between Dee Why Beach and North Narrabeen is widely considered Sydney’s blue-ribbon surfing belt. Being in Sydney, it’s of course going to be crowded, but this is a long stretch of beach with plenty of great breaks.
Margaret River – South Coast, Western Australia
Margaret River is no doubt considered the best surfing spot on Australia’s west coast. This classic wave can get big and nasty, and when there’s a big swell, you’ll be sure to see all the biggest names in Australian surfing out there. It’s one of the few places big wave surfers can wear helmets and no one laughs at them.
Australia is a land of surfing glory. The only thing stopping you from experiencing it all is getting out there.
