Considered one of Sydney’s best surfing beaches. The legend even says the whole Australian surf culture started here early in 1900s. The tradition was preserved and even helped young men to avoid being recruited for the Second World War by floating out for hours while recruitment officers were in the area. The surf culture is still strong today, supported by surf life-saving clubs.

I was born and bred at maroubra. I always feel very proud to say that regardless of what some reactions have been pertaining to some bad perceptions about the place. Especially being first generation Australian, I chose to also buy my own place to live in maroubra. I have been fortunate enough to travel the world, but I don`t think I can ever move from here...though I do hope some of the housing projects around maroubra will one day be eradicated as the troublesome youth do marr what can be the best beach on earth!!!

I lived at Maroubra on Marine Drive from age 18 to 20 I really enjoyed listening to the surf especially at night. I lived there with my Mum. I returned there a couple of years ago and it has updated tremendously. We moved there from Randwick, but Maroubra was my favorite place I lived...I do miss it.

I lived around the corner from Maroubra beach in Bond St from birth till the age of 15. My memories will last for ever. My dad taught me how to surf by taking me down to the beach told me to hang on to his neck while he dived under some huge waves and at the peak of the biggest wave I have seen flung me onto the wave. I rode it to the shore. What a buzz! I still love to bodysurf.
My friends and I used to clamber over the rocks on the north end of the beach barefoot of course. We found a wonderful rock pool called "eggie", because of its shape. It was always clean and very deep in the centre. We had great fun in that pool.
I think Maroubra beach is by far the best beach in the east.

I remember Maroubra Beach as the most wonderful. I live there on Bond St. for 6 years. 68-74. If it rained on the weekend my dad would let me stay home from school on Monday. Every Wednesday we would go to the seaside pool for sport. Some times the waves were so huge they would almost push you out of the pool. I want to come to visit.
Been here? Help others get a better idea of Maroubra Beach!
