North Coast

North Coast - // Australia's surfing coast //

The North Coast of New South Wales features some of the best surfing beaches in Australia.

White, long sandy stretches emphasised by the bluest, transparent water highlight the naturally beautiful coast and the many amazing breaks within it.

From Terrigal to the Tweed the North Coast is home to the majority of the State's surfers and breaks - including Australia's most recent Association of Surfing Professionals World Champions - Mick Fanning (2007) and Stephanie Gilmore (2007, 2008).

Featuring Byron Bay and other internationally renown breaks, the North Coast of New South Wales is steeped in Australian surf culture, history and is a leader in the heady surfing revolution of years gone past.

Now with a host of excellent surf schools at its doorstep the North Coast allows a surfing lifestyle to become a reality.
