Surfrider Foundation Eco Challenge Gold Coast is a community event showcasing sustainable surfing culture, leisure and business. 

It’s all about enjoying the coast, protecting and promoting its health & fundraising for Surfrider Foundation Gold Coast Tweed & Tugun SLSC. 

So we have created a great line-up of events to highlight this in all aspects, so that the whole family can enjoy and take something away from it. We call upon the local communities and friends from far and wide to engage, enjoy and protect what we love: the waves, oceans and beaches.

The day will be filled with excitement & things to do including:

• Live Music from headlining acts ALL DAY
• “The Worlds” ROOTS of Surfing Wooden Surfboard Teams Challenge
• Skateboarding Competition
• Culture, Environmental, Musical and Kids activity workshops
• Guest speakers and environmental campaigns
• Eco Village Market & Food Stalls + more

Surfrider Foundation Eco Challenge Gold Coast event this year is combining with Toolona St Festival and is apart of the Bleach* Festival.

Tugun’s most famous resident, the iconic 90-year-old Moreton Bay Fig Tree takes centre stage once again as Bleach* Festival’s series of infamous street parties roll on.

Arrive early for the Surfrider Foundation Eco Challenge presented by Climate Wave Enterprises, a 100% solar powered, sustainable surfing lifestyle event that evolved from a love of the ocean, and features a wooden surfboard competition, displays, eco-market stalls and much more.

Discover the history of ‘Jungen’ (Tugun) as Banaam Events share the rich ties of the Gold Coast’s ‘Saltwater Mobs,’ through expressions of art, music, workshops, food and storytelling from Elders.

After making new friends at one of the long communal dining tables, stroll beneath the lantern lights and branches of that beloved fig and wander into a twilight bliss as the sounds of Electrik Lemonade,Robbie Miller and Ivey emanate into the night.

Eco Challenge: 12.00pm – 4.00pm

Toolona Street Festival: 4.00pm 9.00pm
