hey man.  not really any awesome lefts in sydney that i know of.  There are however plenty of beach breaks so you will definately get lefts off them.  Just a tip - sydney beaches will be extremely crowded in summer, especially bondi.  Lots of chicks in bikinis though (im assuming your a guy).

If you are staying in Brisbane, you might end up going to the Gold Coast. If so , You'll find lefts at 'The Southport Seaway'. Duranbah has good lefts too but the rights are better. Keep in mind both spots are just beachies.There's also a couple of islands off Brisbane and the Gold Coast that may have something for the more adventurous. Good luck

Geez mate, why discriminate?  Backhand is where all the fun is at.  Im from the South Coast of NSW and did a trip to Santa Cruz Ca where i could count the amount of forehand waves i surfed.  Really lets you focus on the weaker points of your surfing  But really, Oz is full of all kinds of waves from perfect beachies up North on the goldie to powerful reefs on the south coast to the big long lines marching in off Vicco.  If your a beginner and dont like going backhand stay away from the goldie.  Id head anywhere South of Sydney if i were you where there are less crowds and plenty of quality waves (including a bazillion left and right points and reefs as well as heaps of beachies).  But mate you know the drill, if i told ya, id have to kill ya.
