Australian Surf Tours

Australia: South Coast

Immerse yourself in the true Aussie surf culture at this dynamic new surf college, with courses from beginners to professionals - and only one hour from Sydney.

"Sydney's closest surf camp in beautiful scenery"

With Sydney’s closest surf camp, you’ll be based in the Beach Motel in the lively surf community of Thirroul, Wollongong, just 1hours train ride to Sydney’s centre. The weekend camp in Bendalong is a bit further from Sydney, but closer to nature. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, you’ll have intimate wildlife encounters most tourists don’t experience - swimming in crystal rockpools, hand-feeding giant stingrays, surfing with dolphins, petting wild kangaroos. Courses range from a weekend to a 12 week program and are for all levels.

"Beach motel or camp - comfort or wildlife"

A Beach Motel rather than a surf hostel, all rooms are serviced and only have 3 single beds per room (or upgrade to a private room), private bathrooms, kitchenette, common area, and pool table. Weekend courses are held in Bendalong peninsula, 3 hours south of Sydney. With Conjola national park at your doorstep, you can even watch migrating whales in season. The 6 beaches face different directions meaning the waves are perfect to learn surfing in all conditions! Breakfast, board and wetsuit hire are all included.

"Beginner & advanced, professional coaches & suited waves"

You will find different surf options from soft beach breaks to barreling reef breaks, suitable for beginners and advanced surfers. As a member of Surfing Australia, you’re assured the highest standards of coaching by qualified coaches with certificates in Lifesaving, Working With Children Checks and Senior First Aid. You’ll have a professional coach who’s traveled the world coaching and still gets weekly training, so you’re in the best hands! You even get the chance to shape your own board if you want, and are constantly encouraged to improve your surf skills, no matter what level.
