The largest surf park in the southern hemisphere will open in Perth by 2025 with 25 types of waves

Western Australia is already home to the best beach in Australia for 2022, the best beach in the South Pacific for this year too, all that coastline and many beloved sandy spots. But in the summer of 2024-2025, it will mark yet another reason to get splashed. That’s when global surf park brand Aventuur is set to open a huge site in Perth, creating the largest site of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

Man-made waves have had their Down Under moment lately. Urbnsurf opened Australia’s first indoor surf park near Melbourne Airport in 2020, then revealed plans for venues in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth. The Hawkesbury area of ​​NSW is also getting a giant wave pool and luxury resort, the Sunshine Coast is set to host Kelly Slater’s second surf ranch, and the Gold Coast has been earmarked for a wave pool. Endless Surfing waves. But Aventuur is going as far as it can go with its $100 million WA business, which will feature 25 different wave types.

Clearly, providing breaks and barrels that everyone can surf – whatever your skill level – is one of the big goals of Aventuur’s Perth Surf Park, which will occupy a 5.7 hectare site on Prinsep Road in Jandakot, next to the Kwinana Highway and Cockburn Central Station. This will include what he calls a Wavegarden Cove, aka the huge 56-module surf lagoon that will be the main draw card – and which will consistently create perfect waves.

Also slated to include: accommodation, which will be handy for anyone traveling west just for some artificial surf action; a beach club; bars and restaurants; and retail stores, all as part of a major center for surf sports, leisure, recreation and entertainment. There will also be a health and wellness center, coworking offices, and function and event spaces.

Get ready to offer personalized coaching, fitness and surf skate programs, as well as regular events such as outdoor surf movie nights and photography exhibitions. Yoga and meditation retreats will also make the most of the site, as will live music and cultural festivals – and, of course, professional surfing competitions.

Already an avid surfer? Do you know someone who could be the next Mick Fanning or Stephanie Gilmore? Then let yourself be seduced by the high performance surfing academy at Perth Surf Park.

Whether you’re a future superstar or just learning, there will also be a rental shop for boards, wetsuits and gear, so you won’t have to bring your own gear with you.

While surfers will not be able to live their Breaking point and blue crush dreams until the summer of 2024-25, Aventuur has just signed a long-term ground lease with the Western Australian Planning Commission for its Perth Surf Park site.

And if you’re wondering why surf parks keep popping up – especially in a country surrounded by sea, and therefore surrounded by so many wonderful beaches – they are able to provide controlled and reliable conditions, including waves that are not intimidating for newcomers. The Perth Surf Park, for example, will offer knee-high white water for beginners, as well as ideal waves for experienced surfers.

Aventuur’s Perth Surf Park is due to open on Prinsep Road in Jandakot, Perth, Western Australia, in 2024. For more information, go to the website of the place.
