Main Beach - Mallacoota
Victoria, East Gippsland
The peaceful town of Mallacoota in the north east corner of Victoria provides shelter from strong west winds for surfers and at times a fun wave breaks when the sand builds up, forming a beach between the point and the inlet entrance.
The south end of the beach, right beside the point is the best spot for beginners when the sandbar is attached to the beach and the waves are small. Care should be taken when surfing here, as the sandbars are constantly changing around the inlet entrance with rips and gutters ever present - give this spot a miss when there is no attached sandbar present in the southern end of the beach.
If the waves are flat here, there are several exposed beaches south of town that are best suited for experiences surfers on all but tiny wave days. When the waves are too big in Mallacoota during big south to west swells, beginner surfers' best option is a long drive all the way up to the Eden - Pambula region in New South Wales for smaller waves.
