If you want to know how serious the surf culture is in Newcastle, save the date for the 11-day Surfest in Newcastle slated on 20 January - 25 February 2018

More than 800 pro surfers – local and international- will compete at Merewether beach, a renowned Australian National Surfing Reserve. On its 31st year, Surfest continues to attract a large number of spectators – which you are about to witness when you join the cheering crowd next year.

Who will be named ‘champions’ this year? It’s anybody’s guess. Parking and access: Corner John Parade & Watkins Street, Merewether NSW 2291
