On behalf of the Victorian Government, welcome to the major events capital of Australia – and proud home of the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles. Victoria lives and breathes sport, and no one puts on a show like we do. We’re home to some of the biggest events in the world including the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, Melbourne’s famous Spring Racing Carnival and the Australian Open tennis. While competition is important, one of the best things about the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles is the camaraderie and enjoyment experienced by everyone involved.
Hosting the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles – and doing it so well – is part of what makes Victoria the sporting capital. Events like these draws visitors from far and wide, keeping our bars, restaurants, and hotels busy, while boosting our visitor economy. They also provide an opportunity to shine the spotlight on our world-class sports and entertainment venues. That is why we’re proud to support the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles and help stage this fantastic event here in Bells Beach. When you’re not at the surfing, I encourage everyone to explore the many things our beautiful state has to offer. I hope all competitors, volunteers, fans and visitors enjoy the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles.
Hon John Eren MP Minister for Sport, Tourism and Major Events
