50 years of history

Since 1968, The Surf Safari has been a highlight of the Surf Sports calendar in Tasmania. An event of impressive endurance, it sees the Derwent River come alive with the best of Tasmania’s lifesavers displaying their skills across a 21km course. In recent years the Surf Safari program has been extended to include ocean skis, stand up paddle boards, outriggers, junior boards and some shorter distance events.

On 2018, the Surf Safari celebrated 50 years of continuous surf craft racing in Tasmania – making it the longest running surf craft event in Australia.

Entry & Course details

The event will take place on the picturesque Derwent River which runs through the city of Hobart. The river and estuary provide a relatively safe, but at times testing, environment for the event. This year the Surf Safari will start and finish at Long Beach Lower Sandy Bay – 5kms south of the Hobart CBD.
