The last surf beach in Australia

ByBill Meade

Surfers, tourists and northward travelers looking for a place to enjoy surfable waves and a beautiful beach on the east coast of Australia simply must stop in at Agnes Waters.

Why? Well, due to the formation of the Great Barrier Reef, surfable waves are not created further north beyond our lovely little town.

Lucky for us, and for passers-by, there’s plenty of reasons to stop in at our town for a few days (or locate their more permanently like many others have after falling in love with it on holidays).

Sitting along that famous coastal route, traversed by Australians, backpackers and international visitors alike, you can get here sticking on the Discovery Coast. Only an hour or so south of Gladstone and north of Bundaberg, we’re the most southerly part of the Great Barrier Reef.

Our beach, the last surfable beach as you head north in Australia, is not quite six kilometres long. You can expect waves about one metre high and it’s patrolled at the southern end.

If you’re interested in the properties available on the market here, I have houses to suit all budgets. I’m happy to drive you around town and show you the real estate on offer. Reach me on 0457 737 300.
