Newcastle, New South Wales

Once the richest professional surf event in the world, Surfest has developed into a huge event on the Australian surfing calendar. Over 700 participants descend on Newcastle’s gorgeous beaches for 11 days of action carving up the storied right-handers on Merewether Beach. As well as the men’s and women’s pro events, there are junior, school and Indigenous competitions.
