The Bells Beach Surfing Classic held annually in Victoria and is a professional surfing competition that attracts visitors to Bells Beach every Easter.
Commonly known as the “Rip Curl Pro” this event is the longest running professional surfing contest in the world and is one of the best competitions on the pro circuit due to the giant giant swells produced by the Southern Ocean.

In celebrating over 50 years of competition, the Bells Beach Surfing Classic brings together the very best professional surfers from around the world in one major competition.
There are plenty of activities for visitors to engage in, both at sea and on sand. The popular Bells contest site draws visitors in their numbers as there is a natural amphitheatre created by the dunes which gives spectators a great view of the competition.
For those who simply want to relax, the scenic view of the hanging red cliffs against the turquoise blue waters of the ocean makes a magnificent background in which to unwind and enjoy the sun and sea.
Facilities available on location include a kiosk and a first aid centre. There are also toilets and showers located nearby and parking spaces. Though, travellers should arrive early to get a parking spot as they will fill up fast.
