Surf and Turf

Our Surf and Turf complete gap year flies you to Australia, sets you up with accommodation at the beginning of your trip. You'll stay in the Sydney Base which is situated in the heart of the Sydney CBD and is just a few minutes walk to all that Sydney has to offer, such as the iconic Opera House, Harbour Bridge walk and Darling Harbours buzzin cafes and bars. Transport to Bondi Beach, the SCG or Olympic Stadium is a short 2min walk across the street, departing from the Town Hall Station.Popular at Base is The Sanctuary an innovative girls only floor with high quality facilities, safety and home comforts including FREE shampoo and conditioner. Meet other travellers on the free daily activities like beach walks, BBQ s and harbour city walks. Next door hit the Scary Canary with nightly entertainment, DJs and theme parties.

Once you've had enough of city life you'll jump on the bus and head to our purpose built surf camp where you'll spend the next few days. Our surf camp is right on the beach… even if you're the slowest walker it might only take you a minute to get from your room to beach! There you'll learn to surf on our great learner friendly surf beaches. It wont take you long before you've surfed up an appetite and our chefs have you covered. Buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner will keep you full and ready for all the action.
