Melbourne

We’re building Australia’s first surf park, and the world’s first full-sized Wavegarden Cove,
on Airport Drive, Tullamarine to help Victorian residents and visitors #surfmore

Project #1   Opening Spring 2019   Airport Drive, Tullamarine

Overview

URBNSURF is stoked to be building Australia’s first surf park, URBNSURF Melbourne, on Airport Drive, Tullamarine to help Victorian residents and visitors #surfmore in 2019.

Surfing is a sport enjoyed by millions of Australians for its fun, health benefits and lifestyle. Up until now, surfing has been held back by geographic limitations, only available at certain coastal locations, and by weather conditions, needing enough swell, the right wind, tide and daylight.

Located just 23 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, URBNSURF Melbourne unlocks these limitations and allows surfers to enjoy their sport safely, more easily and more often.

Surfing in Melbourne? Now it’s possible.

The Design

URBNSURF Melbourne will be the first man-made surf park facility in Australia, and the world’s first full-sized Wavegarden Cove.

Using world-leading wave generating technology, URBNSURF Melbourne will deliver high-quality, authentic surfing waves to suit all abilities, both day and night thanks to LED lagoon lighting. With a north-south lagoon orientation, URBNSURF Melbourne has been designed to suit prevailing winds, with one side of the lagoon always delivering offshore waves.

Multiple lagoon-side amenities will offer something for everyone, including:

Licensed Cafe

An on-trend, sustainable, licensed food and beverage offering where you can enjoy a coffee and watch the surfing action, grab a post-session snack on the run, or share a beer and a meal with friends after a surf.

Hire Store

A fully-equipped hire store, enabling you to try new surfing hardware before you buy, as well as providing wetsuit and board rentals.

Surf Shop

A hardware-focused surf shop, offering the latest range of boards, wetsuits, surf hardware and apparel.

Surf Academy

Our Surf Academy, which will deliver training programmes for all levels of surfing (beginner to elite) and host a range of “surf-fit” styled fitness classes.

Amenities

Beach cabanas, skate ramps, playgrounds and lagoon-side pools.

Functional Space

High quality landscaping reflecting the local and Victorian coastal habitats, integrating the built environment into the natural.

URBNSURF Melbourne promises to be a compelling and iconic destination for surfers and non-surfers alike.

The Delivery

A master plan and preliminary design for URBNSURF Melbourne was delivered in 2019, and planning approval granted for the project in September 2016. Detailed design activities commenced in late-2016, with construction commencing in Autumn 2018. Our wave generator has now been installed, and our lagoon is almost ready to be filled. URBNSURF Melbourne expects to be pumping out perfect waves around Easter 2019, and will open to the public in Spring 2019.
