I have not been to the East Coast of OZ but was lucky enough to be in Perth and toured the West Coast for 3 weeks. Simply incredible. Perth is a fantastic city (70% of all the millionaires in OZ live in Perth) but it is also low key and relaxed. Not as crowded as the West side. Excellent summer winds on the West. I arrived with 9M, 16M and 20M and had to buy a 7M. I weigh 195 lbs. Woodman's Point just South of Perth is fantastic kiting. I went to Margaret's River, famous surf spot, and it was worth the 3 hour drive. The locals tell me the best places are Monkey Mia, 8 hours North of Perth and Esparance, 8 hours south, where last years Airush Catalogue was shot. Check their photos. I'm jealous. I would like to spend the whole OZ summer checking out the West Coast.

I wouldn't say sydney is year round. In summer we get wind almost 5 days a week but winter is pretty hit and miss.
don't know much about paragliding but they do it off many headlands in sydney.
kiting is most popular on baotany bay which allows you to kite in all directions but there are also heaps of surf spots you can kite.
Going north or south from sydney will take you to heaps of great riding spots but most except a few of these are in the surf.
