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.

Toorbul Beach

Toorbul, Moreton Bay Area
On a quiet stretch of beach along the pristine Pumicestone Passage, Toorbul Beach near Brisbane is a picturesque fishing location that somehow remains a well-kept secret. The only noises are the splash of small waves lapping the beach, calls from the huge variety of resident and migratory sea birds, for which Toorbul is famous.

Port Bundaberg

Bundaberg, Bundaberg Area
The Burnett River flows out to sea at Burnett Heads, and just upstream is the Port of Bundaberg with its wharves and imposing sugar terminal. Here, the broad reaches of the Burnett are home to the Bundaberg Sailing Club, and as expected, there are boat ramps and car and trailer parking at the river mouth.

Palm Beach
