Good surf photography spots in late March in QLD, NWS or Vic« on: November 22 2006 02:11:00 »
I am going to Australia for about two weeks in late March and early April. I can fly into Cairns, Brisbane, or Sydney so pretty well the whole east coast is open. I am looking for places that would be good for surfing photography at that time of year. Any advice would be appreciated.

March to April is prime time for the Gold Coast and northern NSW points. You should get epic photos at Burleigh, Snapper and Greenmount (now known as Superbank) and perhaps Duranbah on the Gold Coast. In northern NSW, Lennox, Angourie, Broken Head are world class points and should be firing. There should be some photo opportunities in the bay at Byron. On the Sunshine Coast, Noosa (all five points) can be good in a heavy swell (cyclone or high in the Tasman Sea).

Thanks for that. Great to to hear that it will be prime. Thanks for the beach names. Lots of places to look into before I go. Right now I am looking into flying into Brisbane and out of Sydney. Will get a rental car and drop it off in Sydney on the way out. Too bad I can't fly out of Melbourne as I am thinking hard about going to Bells Beach and the surrounding area if time allows. Superbank and Bells Beach in the same trip would be pretty good.

Found out that I am flying into and out of Brisbane. Thanks to Pete for information on Northern NSW and Southern Queensland. Any more thoughts about that area for late March/early April would be helpful.
Although it is a long go I am still thinking of making my way to surf beaches in Victoria and then flying out of Sydney. I hope you can help me out and talk me either into or out of this part of the trip.

Wayne, the traditional Easter Bells competition is held there at Easter which is usually April so the surf can be good down there. However, northern NSW and Qld have warm water so I would be inclined to stay up north rather than go to Victoria 1,000 miles south and then exit in Sydney 500 miles north again. Sydney has great waves but at this time of the year it is not reliable. If you want to rent a car you can do Angourie to Noosa and take in North Stradbroke Island. Bucket loads of warm water points and plenty of Sunshine and swell. Pete

Mate you can forget about getting surf up near Carins unless you score it bloody lucky out at Kelso reef off Lucinda, your best bet is to fly into Brisbane and head down the Coast,almost every point has a good spot to set up.Go down as far as you want there should be some ground swell coming up by then,Think it may be too late for any cyclone swell. But you should find some nice right hander's all the way down. Gook Luck.
