Surfing Agnes Water

 

The coastline around Agnes Water provides the last chance to surf at swell exposed beaches before travelling north to the Great Barrier Reef and beyond. Although big swells are rarer here than in other surf regions of Australia, the normally small waves that break on most days are a heap of fun for beginners and kids.

Warm water that doesn't drop below 22 degrees Celsius, sub tropical rainforests, national parks, the reef a short boat ride away and a friendly town and mellow waves makes this a great place for a beach holiday or stop over.

Agnes Water is an idyllic holiday destination that provides a fun tropical surfing experience.

Agnes Water Surf Spots for Beginners & Kids

Agnes Water Beach is a great spot for learning to surf. A long beach break with plenty of space away from crowds, here you'll find soft waves perfect for practising your surfing skills.

When the swell is up, long rights peel down the rocky point off the southern headland. When good, the locals are onto it, so unless you practise surfing etiquette and are skilled at catching green waves and turning along the wave face with control, stick to the beach break to ensure everyone surfs safely.

Good To Know...

A good time of year for more consistent waves is from mid summer through to autumn, although waves can often be found here at any time of year.

Hire a four-wheel drive and head into Deepwater National Park to the south of Agnes Water for some amazing beaches and fun waves.

The 1770 (reef to beach) Longboard Classic is held here in March each year.

Tread lightly, as this coastline is a breeding ground for various species of turtles. If you're camping, please practise responsible camping.
