Day 1

Arrival – Welcome to Australia!

You’ll be met at the airport by one of the team, who will take you to your city centre accommodation to get settled in and find your bearings. Depending on the time you get to Sydney, you’ll have time to unwind and relax before meeting the rest of your group.

Day 2

Info Session, Walking Tour, Private Sydney Harbour Cruise

We’ll show you around the beautiful city of Sydney before heading out on our private cruise sailing around Sydney Harbour!! It’s a great way to see the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and soak up the spectacular views of Sydney. All whilst having a great laugh with your new mates.

Day 3

World famous Blue Mountains

You can’t come to Sydney and not visit the Blue Mountains! This morning, you’ll escape the city and travel to the Blue Mountains National Park, a short drive from Sydney. Enjoy hiking, visit waterfalls, spot wild kangaroos and take in some of the Bluey’s spectacular views!

Day 4

Bondi Beach and Snorkeling

We’ll visit the world-famous Bondi Beach today, so relax on the sand or enjoy splashing around in the sea. Afterwards we’ll do the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk where you’ll get to snorkel in secluded bays along the way, play beach volleyball and indulge in a proper Aussie beach BBQ with a few cold beers.

Day 5

Learn to Surf and Port Stephens

On day five we’ll head north, out of Sydney, to the beautiful coastal town of Port Stephens. We’ll stop off at a secluded sandy bay on route for a surf lesson with some brilliant qualified instructors and ride the waves with some proper Aussie surfers. In the evening we’ll have a BBQ and sit around a bonfire on the beach before bunking down for the night in our unique bush bungalow accommodation for the night.

*Please note in winter months (June, July, and August), we’ll go on a brewery tour in Port Stephens rather than stopping for a surf lesson.

Day 6

Sand boarding & dolphin watching

Today you’ll get to feed wild kangaroos and spot koalas before we head off to sand board down some of the biggest sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere! After lunch we’ll hop aboard our private boat for an excellent dolphin cruise and have fun being towed along at the back of the boat. Heading back to Sydney later on, we’ll have just enough time to freshen up before turning out for a fun night on the town.

Day 7

Ferry to Watsons Bay and Coastal walk to Hornby Lighthouse

Today we’re heading to Watsons Bay for a short coastal walk with a nice lookout of the city! Then we’ll get dressed up for dinner at Australia’s highest and most spectacular revolving restaurant. Enjoy delicious food at the ‘all you can eat’ buffet where you can even try some kangaroo. It’s the perfect way to end your amazing Grabatour Oz experience!

Day 8

Check out and onward travel

On day nine you’ll check out of the hostel and move on to your house share or other accommodation – unless you’ve decided to stay on at the hostel, which you’re more than welcome to do.
