Sydney itinerary

Arrival day: Airport transfer & hostel hangs

Welcome to Sydney!

You will meet your group and guide on Monday, so you’ll need to be in Sydney on Sunday night.

No matter the day or time you land, your airport transfer will take you to the hostel where you can relax before an incredible week ahead. Trust us when we say this - there’s no better place to chill than the rooftop of the hostel we’ll be taking you to. With the best hostel view in the world, Sydney Harbour YHA is the BEST place to start your Australia adventure.

Sunday night is the first night of accommodation that is included as part of the tour, but if you need any extra nights before we can arrange that for you.

Monday: City Stroll & Family Dinner

Todays the day you meet your guide and the travel fam you’ll be starting your Australian adventure with, how exciting!  After getting to know each other, you’ll get your bank account, sim card and Tax File Number organised so you can explore stress-free.

Taking you through the city on foot, you’ll see why Sydney is such an iconic and charming city, and why travellers absolutely love it. Your Instagram will be the envy of all your friends by this evening!

The first day ends together with a welcome dinner at one of Sydney’s most iconic venues.

Meal and drink inclusions: Dinner & drink

Tuesday: Culture, Cocktails & Hidden Gems

Sure, travelling is about seeing the icons, but we also want you to experience the lesser-known tourist areas/activities too.

Australia is home to the world’s oldest continuous civilisation, so you’ll spend the morning learning all about it with our own private Aboriginal Cultural tour.

After taking a good look at the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, its time to explore suburbs that the locals love. How will we do that?

Well firstly by embracing Sydney’s bar culture with our own private cocktail making class, how cool is that?! By then you’ll need to eat so we’re going to treat you to dinner at a place that only locals know, where you can try food from any one of six different countries!

Meal and Drink Inclusions: Dinner & 2 drinks

Wednesday: Road tripping, Surfing & Sunsetting

Rise and shine, we’re going on a road trip of a lifetime! After passing through Australia’s first National Park for a short explore, you’ll witness some breath-taking lookouts and coastline scenery as we drive along the Sea Cliff Bridge to our destination, Surf Camp!

After lunch suit up for an afternoon surf lesson, the best feeling ever. And while we’re all still sun-kissed with saltwater in our hair, take in the sunset and argue who was the best in the water!

Meal and drink inclusions: Lunch and dinner

Thursday: Wildlife and the whitest sand in the world

It’s been wow up to now, but today is truly special.

After breakfast at the surf camp, its back on the road as we head to the stunning Jervis Bay area, famous for a couple of things.

Firstly, DOLPHINS! Yes that’s right, you’ll be spending the morning on a boat watching these majestic creatures jump alongside you, all whilst you take in the beauty of the Bay area.

Secondly, Jervis Bay is also famous for having the whitest sand in the world, so guess what you’re doing in the afternoon? That’s right, you’ll be spending some time on it!

As if that wasn’t enough, the National Park that’s home to these stunning beaches is also known for being home to lots of wildlife, so expect to see Kangaroos (and more) up close and in the wild.

Meal and drink inclusions: Breakfast and Lunch

Friday: Work & Travel presentation and Bondi Beach

Now it’s time for some adulting (in the best way) by thinking about what’s next on your Australian adventure. Do you want to travel up the East Coast? Sleep under the stars in the Outback? Get a bar job or start farm work straight away? We’ll have 2 presentations, 1 on employment and 1 on travel, covering everything you need to know to make the most of your time in Australia.

Once we’ve finished, it’s back to doing what we do best - ticking that Aussie bucket list. Next stop Bondi Beach! You’ll have the whole afternoon to explore, try to find the Bondi Rescue team, sunbathe and swim! Not only that but we’ve even sorted a free drink for you at the end of the day!

Saturday: Your Work & Travel help by day, bar crawl by night

It’s time for our one-on-one work and travel session! After taking in the presentations on the Friday, today is your chance to ask all your questions. We understand every traveller is different so that’s why you’ll sit down with one of our work and travel experts so they can answer every question and give you every bit of help putting together your personal perfect Australian adventure.

By the end of your appointment, you will be feeling more confident and excited about what you’re doing next, meaning it's time to celebrate. How? Bar crawl style for a final night with your travel family.

Meal and drink inclusions: Snacks and 4 drinks

Sunday: Rooftop BBQ & family goodbyes

Sunday will be all about looking back on the best week of your lives. You’ve gone out of your comfort zone, you’ve seen and experienced new things, you’ve got amazing memories but most importantly, you’ve now got friends for life. Its time to fire up the barbecue and enjoy Sydney’s beautiful skyline for one last time as a family, while we reflect on how amazing this city is and how much better it was to experience it all together.
