Head to Merewether Beach in Newcastle, two hours north of Sydney, for the Surfest competition in early March. Launched in 1985 to promote the stunning surfing beaches of Newcastle, where the Surfest Competition has become Australia’s biggest surfing festival. The competition consisted of two World Qualifying Events – 4-star Burton Toyota Pro for men and 1-star Newcastle Open for women. You will also find many other surfing events going on here. Cheer on the teen athletes in elementary and high school competitions or watch the talented Aboriginal surfers ride the waves at the Indigenous Classic. More than 10,000 people gathered at Merewether Beach to watch surfers test their skills on the waves of right-hand clapping and the southerly souther waves.
Up to 200 top surfers in the world gather at Surfers Point in Margaret River to take part in the famous Drug Aware Pro in mid-March. It is a fierce battle to win titles. It offers bonuses of around AU $ 100,000 as well as valuable World Qualifier ranking points. Amid these intense and heat waves, you can enjoy music, art and fashion events. Listen to major Australian performers at the music festival and think about the art installation while enjoying the stunning views of the Margaret River. In addition to the waves, this land is also known for world-class wine, mysterious underground caves and towering eucalyptus forests.
