Day 1: G’day Australia! Fly into Sydney Airport where you’ll and take the included transfer to your hostel. Take some time to unwind, or get straight out into the city. You’re really centrally located with many major attractions within walking distance and lots of pubs, shops and cafes.
Day 2: Sydney Walking Tour. Start the day with an orientation meeting, before heading out on a guided tour of the city. We’ll have lunch in Darling Harbour followed by a tour of the most iconic sights including the Opera House, Botanic Gardens and Sydney Harbour Bridge. This evening, we’ll have a welcome meal and then you are free to hit the city’s banging bar scene.
Day 3: Sydney Harbour Catamaran Cruise. This morning, learn all about living and working in Oz. Afterwards, grab your swimmers and selfie-stick – we’re heading for the the sun-soaked deck of our party catamaran for a harbour cruise!
Day 4: Beach Camp. We’re leaving civilisation today with 2 nights in an outback beach camp. On arrival, walk through the bushland down to the beautiful beach for a swim and sunbathe, keeping your eyes peeled for the local critters on the way. As the sun goes down, grab a cold beer and kick back with your mates and the camp’s tame kangaroo!
Day 5: Sandboarding and Bush Walk. Channel your inner adrenaline junky today with a 4WD trip though the massive sand dunes in the area and some sandboarding! After, we’ll learn a bit about local Aboriginal culture before looking for cuddly koalas in Tomaree National Park. Get ready for a night of drinks and laughs round the camp-fire tonight with a cracking barbecue.
Day 6: Wild Dolphin Cruise. Leave dry land behind this morning. We’re heading out into the blue to look for wild bottle-nosed dolphins, turtles and maybe even whales. You can either sun yourself on deck or sit in the boom-net at the back of the boat and watch the dolphins playing underneath. After, travel back to Sydney where we’ll freshen up ready for another night on the town.
Day 7: Surfing Lesson or Blue Mountains Tour. It’s your choice today - board shorts or hiking boots? Learn how to surf like a true Aussie or explore the breathtaking Blue Mountains – it’s a tricky decision! Tonight we’re going ‘out out’ in Sydney, with express entry to 4 bars and clubs!
Day 8: Bondi to Coogee Beach Tour. After a big night out, clear your head with a coastal walk and some time on Sydney’s stunning beaches. Mellow out on the sands, mess around in the waves and nail the perfect ‘beach hair, don’t care’ pic. Finish up with an ice-cold beer with your mates on Bondi late this afternoon.

Arrive into Sydney Airport (SYD) on a Sunday. The included shuttle transfer will take you to your accommodation. There are no activities planned for day 1, so you can either chill out at the hostel after your long flight, or head out into the city.
Activities finish in the evening of day 8, so we strongly recommend that you stay on an extra night in the city as it’ll be a bit of a squeeze getting to the airport on time.
We can help you arrange accommodation for an additional cost. Please speak to a Travel Advisor for more information.
