I'm currently planning a kite trip in November. Following the guide on https://globalkitespots.com/global-kite ... old-coast/
I thought about making a road trip from Sydney to Brisbane.
Things I'm looking for:
- Good spots for wave riding (itermediate level)
- Lots of wind, would like to kitesurf everyday
- Long, sandy beaches
Would I get all these on the way from Sydney to Brisbane?
How's the wild life in this part of Australia? Both in the water and land - we thought about camping during part of the trip. Anything else to be aware of?

Great 900km roadtrip in a camper. Not super windy but has its epic kiting days.
Take a surfboard/s (non kiting ones) - most epic....
Long sandy beaches - not going to be a problem lol!
Wind is going to be your biggest issue as its not like western australia - but it is most awesome all the same and november is the start of wind season
I guess check the Entrance north of sydney and just hop along from there - when at end drive straight past Brisbane and keep going to the sunshine coast too - Caloundra Mooloolaba Maroochydore Noosa etc.. , and dont miss the southern gold coast before that (Currumbin a great kite spot for NE winds - and the world famous surf breaks of DBah snapper kirra (kiteable) currumbin.. Burleigh... ) . - dont worry about Northern Gold Coast/surfers paradise (its not surfers paradise lol! - that is 20km south..) - although you can ride flatwater at KFC on the broadwater.
If you get too warm in van - buy a portable electric fan . - it can get warm... even at night.
if u kiting estuaries arrive after high tide best - outgoing current..
Crocs dont start until 700km+ North of Brisbane, maybe dont teach your gf to bodydrag in Ballina lol!
I want to do it again now.
