Life's a Beach 

From January 17 through 26, 2008, the Australia Week Committee presents another exciting program of events in Los Angeles and New York to showcase the very best of Australian culture, fashion, food, wine, tourism and business."

Highlights include an exclusive luncheon in Los Angeles on Jan. 17 where the Hon. Matt Brown MP, Minister for Tourism for the State of New South Wales, and Layne Beachley, a native of Sydney, Australia and the most successful woman in professional surfing history, will present a viewing of "Sydney -- Life's a Beach," an inspiring visual journey into the lifestyle of this dynamic travel destination.

Layne, a Sydney resident, offers valuable insight into its unique urban beach culture. With more than 1200 miles of stunning beaches and legendary surf breaks surrounded by 600 national parks, Sydney is one of the world's most visually appealing destinations.

Layne Beachley was ESPN's Surfer of the Year in 2001, Australia's female athlete of the year in 2003 and is a US Surfers Hall of Fame inductee. Highly regarded amongst other surf professionals on the ASP World Tour, in 2006 Layne staged the richest event in women's surfing history, the Havaianas Beachley Classic in Sydney; and she was also a formidable competitor!
