We’re teaming up with Surfest for a fourth year to bring you the Lake Macquarie Festival of Surfing!

Join us on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 January 2018 at Redhead Beach to watch locals showcase their talent across three disciplines of surfing; shortboards, longboards and stand-up paddleboards. The heats will take place on Saturday followed by the finals and official presentations on Sunday.


Entries are now open.

Market stalls

Market stalls will be operating from the car park on both days from 8am-2pm.

A viewing section will be sign-posted and located on the kiosk level for wheelchair users and for people with reduced mobility.
