5 Day Ultimate Surfari


Surf’s up and it’s time to come and catch some waves on this fabulous Australian surfing tour!


Starts: Sydney NSW, Australia
Ends: Brisbane QLD, Australia

Day 1: Sydney to Crescent Head

Set the tone for this fair dinkum Aussie adventure by crossing Sydney’s iconic ‘coathanger’ as we venture toward the surfing cloud nine of Crescent Head. Before testing the waters, dip your toes into an oak barrel (literally) in the Hunter Valley. (D)

Day 2: Crescent Head to Byron Bay

Try a barrel of a different kind with an early morning private surf lesson on one of the best right-handers in the world. Here’s your chance to become a bona fide shredder. Kelly Slater, who? Our roadie continues with a traditional BBQ lunch and a cruise past the Big Banana before cruising into Byron – where you can burn incense, sip chai, become a yoga teacher and win cash for being a Cheeky Monkey all in one day. (B, L)

Day 3: Byron Bay

Anti-Maccas and anti-anything mass-produced (but pro juice bars, beer gardens and beards), Byron is glitzy on the outside but small town-hearted underneath. Hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, or watch whales breach from the Lighthouse in winter. This is the town where peace and tranquillity go to relax. You should too. Or jump out of a plane. Byron doesn’t care as long as you’re happy. (B)

Day 4: Byron Bay to Gold Coast

Leave the blissful buzz of Byron behind you as we head to Springbrook National Park and its major draw card, Natural Bridge. Next, swap the national park for a theme park as we make our way to party central, aka Surfers Paradise. (B)

Day 5: Gold Coast to Brisbane

Brisbane doesn’t have surf, but it does have a beach – in the centre of the city. Figure out how to make your holiday last a bit longer. Your boss doesn’t need you that badly. (B)
