Rip Curl West Coast Surf Classic

The Rip Curl West Coast Classic is a mobile surfing event held in March at Marrawah and nearby coastal areas. It is Tasmania's premier surfing event.

The Southern Ocean is renowned for producing big swells and each year West Coast Classic surfers find themselves taking on waves from one to six metres in height.   Some years have seen "Hawaiinesque" conditions.

The event features 12 divisions, from super groms to legends, with the main event being the Men's Open division.

The West Coast Classic event has been contested annually for some 30 years.

Twilight on the Duck 

Circular Head celebrates Australia Day each year with the ''Twilight on the Duck'  festival on the banks of the Duck River in Smithton.

''Twilight on the Duck'  offers low cost family entertainment and competitions, live music, great food and a spectacular twilight fireworks show. Annual activities such as the 'Duck Race', add a fun, local flavour.

This event showcases Circular Head's local produce, talent and uniqueness. It is primarily funded by council with sponsorship from local businesses. The event is a collaborative one, organised by a committee of volunteers and council staff. This committee has been working over several years to grow our Australia Day celebrations into a major event.
