Plaque :

                    Angourie
is one of the unique places in the world, where
surfers have travelled from near and far just to experience
the quality of the wave and the beauty of the natural enviroment that
             should never be lost.

       Angourie Surfing Reserve

Angourie, traditional country of the Yaegl people who lived in harmony with the landscape, is home to ospreys and the playground of dolphins, turtles, whales and the many creatures of the sea.

National Surfing Reserves recognise the sites of cultural and historical significance in Australian surfing.  They acknowledge the surfing way of life and link past, present and future generations with our oceans, waves and beaches.

Generations of surfers coming to Angourie since the 1950`s, have ensured that this beautiful place is integral to the environmental, spiritual and cultural heritage of Australian surfing.
