Surfing

A strong surfing culture flows on North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) which boasts some of the best surfing conditions in south-east Queensland. Surfers and body boarders love this natural wonder for the big swells and large, powerful waves of Main Beach – itself a spectacular 32kms of unspoiled sand and surf. The island’s Cylinder Beach is another popular surfing spot. Named in 2017 by Surf Life Saving Queensland as the state’s top beach, this picturesque cove offers smaller waves, making it a hit with swimmers and less experienced surfers. Lifeguards are on duty at these beaches during the summer, Easter and September school holidays. Other surf beaches on the island include Adder Rock Beach (patrolled during summer and Easter school holidays), Deadmans Beach, Frenchmans Bay, North Gorge, South Head (South Gorge), Rocky Point, Home Beach and Flinders Beach, with the latter all unpatrolled.
