Surf Coast

The surf coast encompasses the long white beaches of Seymour, Chain of Lagoons, Four Mile Creek, Falmouth, Scamander and Beaumaris. Surfers can be happy all year long here, with reliable swells and a mild climate, even in winter. This is true get-away-from-it-all territory, with accommodation ranging from self-catering holiday houses, caravan and cabin parks and excellent free camping, to comfortable ocean-side hotels, motels and resorts.

When you’ve caught enough waves, recharge your batteries with beach walks, estuary fishing, whale watching or sampling the local produce with a meal in a local restaurant, pub or café. Take some time to stroll through coastal towns, like Bicheno and Scamander, and browse in local shops and galleries, or join a wildlife or sightseeing tour.

Or, take a drive off the coastal road and visit Douglas Apsley National Park, located inland from Bicheno, where you’ll find some excellent short walks, including Apsley Waterhole and Lookout (10 minutes to the lookout, or take a 2-3 hour return walk from the river) and the Apsley-Myrtle Rainforest walk (30+ minutes). If you have time, you could also take the more challenging overnight walk to Heritage Falls and the Rainforest Circuit (7-9 hours return).
