Surfing Noosa


Noosa has long been one of the most popular beach resorts in Australia and upon arrival it's easy to see why, especially when a good swell is running. Stroll through the coastal walk in this quintessentially Australian national park, complete with resident koalas, and your jaw will drop in awe at the sight of wave after wave peeling perfectly along its cobblestone points.

The more beginner friendly Main beach also offers fun waves for learning to surf or a safe swim with luxury hotels and cafes set within pockets of rainforest found a short stroll away. Noosa's natural beauty, warm climate and fun waves do bring big surfing crowds, but if you are well mannered and wait your turn, you may just score some of the best waves of your life.

What to see & do

Spend the day walking around the bays in Noosa's national park relaxing, surfing and swimming at one of its many gorgeous beaches. Remember to pack plenty of water, snacks and sun protection.

Drive 40 minutes up to the hinterland towns of Montville & Maleny to check out local art & stunning views of the Pacific Ocean & the Glasshouse Mountains.

Escape the crowds and take a dip at Alexandria Bay in the national park. Bikinis & boardshorts are optional here as swimming naked is accepted.

Where to eat & drink

Head to Hastings Street just behind Main Beach for fine dining & retail. For those on a budget, Gympie Terrace along the river in Noosaville has more affordable and good quality food and beverage options.

Noosa Surf Spots for Beginners & Kids

The south eastern corner of Main Beach is excellent for learning to surf when the waves are small and the crowds low. North towards the rivermouth, fun waves can also be found between the breakwalls when the surf is flat on the points. For more info on the best beginner surf spots in Noosa, click on the landmarks on the map below.

Good To Know...

The point breaks do get really crowded when the surf is good and the combination of these big crowds and steep, fast breaking waves makes attempting to catch and ride a wave on the points a hazardous experience for beginner surfers (and other surfers in the line up).

If you are yet to master catching green waves and turning confidently along the wave face with control, then stick to surfing the beach break so that you don't cause an accident or crash into the rocks! Before venturing out of the whitewater waves into the line up to catch green waves with other surfers, understand and practise good surfing etiquette.

If the surf is flat at Noosa, drive over to Sunshine Beach that is normally more consistent and also more protected in north winds. During big swells, dangerous rips do occur at Sunshine, when surfing the smaller and easier waves at Noosa is often a safer option.

The annual Noosa Festival of Surfing happens every year in March. The world's best longboarders (women, men and kids) display their talents on one of the best longboard waves in the world. Get along and check out the surf action along with live music, films and classic surf equipment that will be on display.

Finding a bed can be a challenge in the summer holidays, so book accommodation well in advance.
