Surfing

It may be true that ‘only a surfer knows the feeling’ but there’s nothing stopping you from getting high on the good stuff too. Queensland is a surfer’s mecca and a must-do on any globe-paddler’s checklist. Blessed with awesome weather and world-class conditions, surfing isn’t just a pastime here; it’s a way of life.

Newbies:

  • Catch a wave for your first time with a surf lesson at Noosa main beach or Currumbin and experience the thrill of surfing for yourself. 

Seasoned surfers:

  • Check out the pristine waves at Noosa National Park on the Sunshine Coast when the timing is right and all the point breaks are working. 
  • Explore Surfer’s Paradise and several other breaks all along the Gold Coast known for plenty of swell action all year-round. 

The pro circuit:

  • Feel like pro by checking out the world-class waves of Kirra Beach, Snapper Rocks or Burleigh Heads. If you look carefully, you may catch a glimpse of pros like Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning or Stephanie Gilmore.
