Queenscliff is the northern headland of Sydney’s famous Manly Beach, Queenscliff was named in honour of Queen Victoria. The area was popular with holiday-makers from the early 1900s to World War I, who stayed in holiday shacks on the headland.
Queenscliff is famous amongst the Australian surf beaches for its "heavy" waves (bomboras) that break out at sea. The stories recounting how Dave Jackman dared to ride one in 1961 gave rise to big wave surfing in Australia.
