Winter surfing spots for beginners near Sydney or Brisbane?

« on: June 16 2009 07:06:00 »

I'm traveling to Australia with a friend for the first 2 weeks of August, and we're looking for some great places to surf for beginners.  By beginners, I mean we have spent a grand total of 4 days surfing in our lives (we took a few lessons in Puerto Rico this spring and got hooked).  We'll be near Sydney for at least part of our trip and then probably traveling up the coast toward Cairns, so any recommendations around Sydney and/or Brisbane (I've heard there isn't much surf once you get up to Cairns) would be helpful.

Also, since we're so new to surfing, we might want to take a couple lessons, so if you have any recommendations for great places to take lessons, that would be great too.

Thanks for your help!
