Agnes Water Beach

Agnes Water Beach

Queensland, Southern Great Barrier Reef

Agnes Water is the most northerly surf beach on the east coast of Australia that is open to ocean swells before the Great Barrier Reef blocks the swell from arriving on the beaches to the north.

At the southern end of this long beach, right in front of town, you'll find soft waves that are great for practising your surfing skills. If it's really small, head further up the beach for more peaks, or drive south and explore the many warm, tropical and more exposed beaches in and around the national park.

Wave Type
Normally small and mellow left and right peaks break along the length of the beach with plenty of space to practise. When the waves are bigger, a good quality right point break starts to work that is cherished by the local surfing community - beginners yet to master catching green waves, turning with control and the intricacies of surfing etiquette, are best to stick to surfing the beach break.
Good Wind Direction
Best on South to West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small to medium East to South East swells. Agnes Water offers protection from bigger North and South swells due to the reef to the north and Fraser Island to the south that block much of the swell from either of these directions.

- Rocks in the southern corner off the point.
- Rip currents and marine life.

Have fun surfing Agnes Water by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

The car park is located at the southern end of beach and at the surf lifesaving club located 2km north of the point.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled from September to May on Sundays and Public Holidays - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

At both the southern end of the beach and at the surf life saving club.

Closest Shops
The town is situated behind the southern corner of the beach and boasts cafes, restaurants, take away shops, surf shops, pubs and clubs.
