Construction for Australia's first surf park will commence in March 2018.

Located adjacent to the Essendon Football Club on Airport Drive, Tullamarine, URBNSURF Melbourne has been designed to be an innovative surf sports, leisure and entertainment facility centred around a world-class surfing lagoon. At 2.1 hectares in area, the lagoon will be similar in size to the MCG and will host up to 84 surfers per hour across six different surfing zones.

This next-generation, state-of-the-art facility will deliver authentic, safe and convenient surfing experiences for all skill levels, year-round. With a modular, minimalist design, URBNSURF Melbourne will also feature a multi-outlet food and bar precinct, concept retail store, fully-equipped surf and hire shop, night surfing, a surfing academy, high performance coaching and training options, fitness classes, festivals and events, a beach club, and relaxing, landscaped open spaces.

URBNSURF Melbourne is anticipated to generate over 300 jobs during the construction phase, whilst another 50 full time positions will be created one the facility opens in 2019.
