Queensland’s coastline reads like a ‘who’s who’ of surfing – Superbank, Kirra, Burleigh Heads, Noosa – the gang’s all here!
The best surf beaches are found in the south-east corner of the state, though those who are daring will find perfect waves peeling offshore on the fringes of the Great Barrier Reef further north (just don’t tell anyone we told you so).
As well as showing off with some of the world’s best waves, these sandy havens back it up with great food and the best views to be found at the local surf clubs, usually perched right on the beach.
