WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
Sydney Welcome Tour (7 days)
You will start the tour in Sydney where our coordinators will explain everything you need to know, helping you organise your bank card, tax file number and mobile SIM. Then we’ll take a guided walking tour of Sydney including Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Opera House and the Botanical Gardens.
Following group introductions and a short info session about working and travelling around Australia, we’ll take a cruise of the stunning Sydney Harbour on our catamaran and check out the sights including Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Fort Dennison, Luna Park and Watson’s Bay!
From here it’s on to our basecamp! We’ll depart the city for 3 days and 2 nights, to an area famous for its stunning beaches, amazing sand dunes and abundance of Aussie wildlife, including dolphins, whales, koalas, echidnas and possums. We’ll get the adrenaline pumping by jumping in our 4WD heading up the enormous nearby sand dunes to try epic sand-boarding, followed by a delicious BBQ dinner and drinks around the campfire in the evening. If that’s not enough, an amazing dolphin watching cruise awaits! Get up close to wild bottlenose dolphins, relax on deck, or ride in the boom net while dolphins swim underneath you, and keep your eye out for turtles and whales!
Once we have arrived back in Sydney, get ready for a fun night on the town Aussie style! Meet up at one of our favourite party bars before heading out on our Sydney pub crawl. We’ll visit 4 bars in the city and receive a free drink at each one! On your last day we’ll take a tour along Sydney’s beautiful cliff-top coastline, from Coogee to Bondi, checking out six stunning beaches along the way. It’s the perfect way to unwind after an awesome first week in Sydney!
Australia Surf Camp (5 days)
Set your own pace on our amazing surf camp. Whether you’re a complete novice, or already king of the waves, our experienced surf instructors will be on hand to guide you and improve your technique. As the days go by, you will develop your skills and knowledge to go surfing independently. You will spend full days on the beach and in the water, focusing on the theory and practice of surfing, each day gaining more ocean knowledge, developing your board skills and your understanding of the ocean. Our coaches will be surfing with you every step of the way.
This surf camp has unique access to 12 different surf breaks all within 30 minutes drive of the base camp; including our beach out the front of our surf camp. Every morning, like professional surfers, we check weather conditions and surf the best break to suit those conditions. This means we could be surfing a beautiful Point Break one day and an amazing Back Beach the next or 4WD* up the beach to find a perfect sand bank. This means your progression will develop faster and you’ll be able to enjoy surfing independently even quicker and feel at one with the waves!
*Point Break, Back Beach, and 4WD are surfing jargon terms. If you didn’t know this don’t worry, you’ll know the surfing lingo in no time!

The Oz Experience is an adventure experience company first and a bus travel company second. While each pass is unique, they all visit some of the most incredible places the East Coast of Australia has to offer.
