6 of the Most Amazing & Beautiful Surf Spots You’ll Find in Brisbane

29 May 6 of the Most Amazing & Beautiful Surf Spots You’ll Find in Brisbane


Let’s face it, Australia is renowned for having some of the most beautiful and most awe-inspiring beaches in the entire world. Some of you may have heard of the stunning Surfer’s Paradise, one of the most renowned surfing locations in the world.

On the other hand, locations like Gold Coast and Byron Bay have long attracted surfers from all over the world to their golden sand beaches and beautiful tropical seas. However, there’s a new up and coming location that is capturing the hearts of beginner and professional surfers alike; Brisbane.

Here to give you a helping hand on your Moreton Bay adventure, these are the six best surfing locations that you’re not going to want to miss!


This sandy beach bar location to kickstart our list is perfect for mid-range skill level surfers since it’s located at the mouth of the Brisbane River. This is a unique site which is adored by the locals since the waves are actually generated by cruise & cargo ships and cruise liners nearby.

Currumbin Alley

Another great spot that’s suitable for surfers of any ability level, Currumbin Alley is an extremely rewarding surf break location where some of the waves found here on a good day have been described as being ‘world-class.

“Although the site can get crowded during the weekends, especially since surf schools reside here, travelling here during the week can offer a beautiful and relaxing experience that’s loved by surfers around the world” – shares James Stegall, a Travel Reporter at Essayroo and Ukwritings.


Noosa is an all-rounded surfing, adventure and relaxation wonderland that’s incredibly hard to beat, no matter where you go in the world. The sea here is suitable for surfers of any skill level so you can expect it to become crowded on the most beautiful of days.

Noosa is home to several gorgeous breakpoints which are known as Sunshine Beach, Noosa Breach and North Shore where you’ll find two-metre swells to keep you entertained.

Burleigh Heads

This is a point-break location that’s perfect for intermediate surfers and is one that is renowned and famous around the world. “This is because Burleigh Heads is located on the beautiful Gold Coast, making for a location that has been transformed into a diversity melting pot with surfers from around the world” – comments Danny Jones, a Sports Writer at Academized.


This is the only recommended location that professional, and highly experienced surfers should visit, no matter how gorgeous you think that it is here. In fact, many people don’t even know this location exists and remains a mild secret to many people in the surfing community.

The spot can be found on Moreton Island by Cape Moreton but getting there can even prove to be a mission in itself since you’ll need to take a 4×4 vehicle with you on the ferry. You can expect swells between one and three metres on a good day but beware of shark season which falls around the month of September.

Main Beach

Suitable for surfers of all skill level, Main Beach is easily one of the most popular spots for surfing in the region and offers and gentle and relaxing kind of break which is perfect for those taking to the board for the first time.

Stanley Rodriguez, a Surfer and travel writer at Best Australian Writers explains: “With this in mind, there is a tonne of surfing schools in this area so more experienced surfers may want to steer clear or go somewhere a little more remote and quieter. However, there is a tonne of fun attractions around the local area, making this a place you can be sure that you’re never going to get bored.”

No matter what kind of location you’re looking for on your surfing holiday, whether it’s adventurous or relaxing, you can be sure that Brisbane has something for you.

    I’m not a surfer, nor have I been to Brisbane. But I have heard a lot of great things and one of my biggest regrets when visiting Australia was not to visit there. Your article is certainly bringing back that wanderlust!

    What an amazing photos!! I guess Noosa and Main beach will be the two most appropriate beaches for me to visit, because I am still a beginner. Would love to try some waves after seeing this post!

    I am not a surfer, but I do enjoy watching the waves and the sport. I would love to check out Boulders and see all the pro surfers there mastering their sport. I also would love to visit all these beaches some day. I always hear that Australia has beautiful beaches 🙂

    Must agree that Australia is surfing heaven, not like my home! Kicking back on Main Beach and giving the waves a try sounds amazing. With so many surfing schools around, it’s a great place to start.

    I’m a complete newcomer to surfing so I think Main Beach would be the best choice for me. That said, I’m attracted by the other beaches and attractions at Noosa too. Unfortunately, I still haven’t made it to Australia, but Brisbane really looks like an incredible part of the country.
