Maroubra is one of Australia’s top surfing beaches! Maroubra has retained its working-class attitude and presents a laid back atmosphere, with the locals enjoying a much more causal scene than Bondi or Bronte.

An official National Surfing Reserve, the spectacular 1km-long beach is wrapped by a rocky headland, natural bushland and expansive green parks, perfect for picnics and walking adventures.

Less famous than Bondi and not as touristy as its neighbour Coogee, Maroubra beach perches on a long bay, surrounded by windswept dunes, wild bushland and a rocky headland. In 2006 it became the first NSW National Surfing Reserve, an acknowledgement of the beach’s world-famous wave culture and its abundant natural gifts.
