Maroubra’s biggest drawcard is the one-kilometre stretch of beach, which has the prestigious status of National Surfing Reserve. Renowned for conditions that are conducive to beginners, there are plenty of budding surfers who congregate along the shoreline.
As prevalent as the surfing culture is, outdoor gyms and beach cricket also have a strong hold on the community, as does the winter swimming club – members compete against swimmers from clubs established at beaches to the north of Maroubra.
Maroubra has a diverse makeup of cultures, and there is a strong sense of family prevalent throughout the community. Young 20- and 30-somethings are also drawn to the more affordable beach lifestyle.
Maroubra’s most outstanding feature is Maroubra Beach, the second beach in Australia (after Bells Beach) crowned as a National Surfing Reserve. You’ll find plenty of competitions on the beach, featuring the rock stars of surfing. On dry land, there’s an outdoor gym, plenty of joggers and the occasional beach cricket competition (international standard!).
Extending from Maroubra Beach is Arthur Byrne Reserve. It has many grassed areas screened by native trees and shrubs, making it an ideal location for a BBQ or picnic. Larger and more open areas are used for kite flying, informal ball sports, walking and jogging. The Maroubra Skate Park is also located within the reserve. There is also a free outdoor gym which contains a wide range of strength and cardio equipment. Alcohol is prohibited at Arthur Byrne Reserve from sunset to sunrise.
A rugged coastal reserve with walking trails and the iconic saltwater Mahon Pool. It’s the place to exercise while you soak up the extensive views of the coastline or watch sea life during migration season.

Locals have their pick of restaurants and cafés that dish up multicultural cuisine. McKeon Street is the go-to place, while Maroubra Junction and South Maroubra Shopping Village also have great coffee and dining offerings.
Maroubra is home to the femme fatales of homes. Take a family home, wrap it in render, add some striking entertainment areas, bathe in sea breeze and take in the view. Incredible stuff.
