Manly Australian open of surfing

02 Feb Manly Australian open of surfing

Only a few weeks left now until Manly turns into a festival town for the much anticipated Australian open of surfing!


What you can expect

The once a year, week long celebration of surfing is and exciting time on every local’s calendar. The main focus of the event is showcasing some of the best home grown and international surfing talent, from groms to pro’s. With heats every day, best trick competitions, and much more, take the time to watch these guys/gals do what they do best. Alongside the surfing competition, Gopro beach bowl returns. this mobile skate bowl is shipped in from the USA, and takes nearly a week to construct. watch pro skaters defy gravity in the 500sq ft size battle ground!


The 2016 festival is bringing with it some big names, from house hold names Angus and Julia stone, playing their loved style of folk, and up and coming delight Kita Alexander (you might even find her on a surfboard),  and the very talented Mansionair. these guys along with a selection of DJ’s will attract a huge crowd right on the end of Manly’s corso. check the event timetable for set times. Not to be missed!



Manly already boasts a enviable selection of  culinary delights, from the always booked out chica bonita, to the Austrian style bavarian beer cafe. You don’t have to go far to find a local favourite! Adding to the already impressive spread, a hoard of food trucks arrive with the festival. this year we are expecting such vendors as Berlin Bangers, serving up an array of sausages, claimed to be the best in the land! Happy as Larry are also due to make an appearance, making wood fire Neapolitan pizzas that would make your drool… If you are more inclined for a bit of spice in your life, Cantina Movil will fill any stomach with a hole in it. Serving up succulent slow-cooked Mexican fare, evoking a fiesta wherever they roam! One thing is without a doubt, no one in Manly is going hungry!
