Thanks a lot for ya help.
Keep on surfing.
So many surfing spots to choose from in Australia! Sydny Australia is one of the best place to live and surf as there are lots of great surf beaches close to the city.
Having said this, Melbourne isn't far behind and it is another amazing place to live and ride waves. There are great waves very close to the city as well - you can either head west to the surf coast, down to the Mornington Peninsula ocean beaches, or spend the weekend at Phillip Island.
By the way, Melbourne's housing is much cheaper than Sydney, so that could be another factor to sway you to Melbourne.
The surfing is also good along the west coast, especially in Perth. Scarborough Beach is one of the favorites. You'll find more ideas on where to find good surfing in this helpful article.
surfing spots in Australia
Sydney has lots of great surf beaches close to the city, but Melbourne has many great waves very close to the city as well, which I think are nicer. You can either head west to the surf coast (Torquay, Bells), down to the Mornington Peninsula ocean beaches, or spend the weekend at Phillip Island. It all receives different swell and winds, so there is always somewhere that has waves.

My home beaches near Mallacoota get good surf occasionally, though I thin three of the best surfing spots in Australia are Angourie to Byron Bay in NSW, Noosa â€“ Point Break, and Snapper Rocks in Queensland.
Those all sound like great suggestions. Are any of these spots better for new surfers?

Queensland has several surf schools at Surfers Paradise , Gold Coast, Noosa on Sunshine Coast and also Byron Bay in NSW. If you're coming to Sydney I suggest coming down to the southern beaches at Cronulla rather than the hyped Bondi beach. the beaches at Cronulla are the best and not so touristy as the northern beaches.
There is no doubt that the attraction is directly proportional to the beauty and more beauty place has more number or people it can attract towards it. There are lots of places that have contributed in making these tours best and attractive. Some of these places include Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin and this list is so long.
The best places for surfing in Australia are:
Wow, I wish I can also try to surf someday! Anyway, I read that these are some of the best places for surfing in Australia:
* North Coast â€“ Angourie to Byron Bay, NSW
* Noosa â€“ Point Break, QLD
* Snapper Rocks, QLD
* Seal Rocks and Pacific Palms, NSW
* Northern Beaches, NSW
* Torquay â€“ Bells Beach, VIC
* Crescent Head, NSW
* Margaret River â€“ Yallingup and Prevelly Park, WA

There are some amazing beaches in New South Wales which are best for surfing. I list my top 5 :
If you're looking at major cities by the coast to live in, then Sydney and the Gold Coast would be your best bet. However Sydney is one of the most expensive cities in the world and you could find much better beaches that aren't packed with tourists and surfers elsewhere in the country.
It's a big city (4 million +) with great surf beaches, great ethnic diversity, heaps of places to eat and shop, plenty of tourists but far more locals. The climate is OK too though not as warm as the Gold Coast. Sydney has a huge selection of good schools and several universities
