Day 1: Welcome to Sydney. G’day mate and welcome to beautiful Australia! We’ll pick you up from the airport and take you to your amazing city centre hostel - Sydney Harbour YHA. It’s probably the hostel with the best view in the world so kick back in your new home and take in the views before the adventure begins properly tomorrow.
Day 2: City tour & welcome dinner. Meet your guide and your travel fam and get out there for a walking tour of some of the most iconic highlights - your Insta will be the envy of your mates at home! Then get ready for a welcome dinner at one of Sydney’s best venues.
Day 3: Aboriginal culture, cocktails & street food. Learn all about Aboriginal culture on a private tour. Then explore the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, before going full mixologist at a cocktail making class. We’ll need some grub to soak up those cocktails – hello street food market (only the Sydneysiders know about this one)!
Day 4: Surf camp. Hit the coast road today as we leave the city for our amazing two-day surf-camp escape! Make a stop en route in Australia’s first National Park before arriving in time for lunch and an afternoon surf lesson. Then watch the sun go down from the beach with your mates – amazing.
Day 5: Jervis Bay dolphin cruise. The trip’s about to get even more special, as we head towards Jervis Bay which is famous for two things – dolphins, and the whitest sand in the world! Take an unforgettable dolphin cruise before joining some group beach games on those sugar white sands.
Day 6: Bondi Beach baby! Enjoy a free morning before we head to none other than Bondi Beach! Practice your surf skills, take a dip or just chill on the beach. When the sun goes down, get ready for another night out Sydney-style.
Day 7: Free day & bar crawl. Make the most of your last full day in sunny Sydney, before we celebrate our incredible trip tonight with a banging bar crawl!
Day 8: Rooftop BBQ & trip end. There’s only one way to round things off – with a classic Aussie barbecue lunch. Take in the city skyline together, enjoy a sausage fresh from the grill and reflect on your amazing adventure.

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:
Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.
Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.
Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.
Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.
Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.
Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.
Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.
24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.
It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
