A lot of adventure tours will offer you the chance to surf in Australia. Not surprising, as it is the home of some of the world’s best surf beaches. You only have to look at the list of top 10 surfers in the world to recognise that most of them are Australian!

If you are already a pro surfer, you might want to head straight to the aptly named Surfers Paradise itself in Queensland so you can surf by day and party by night with fellow watersports enthusiasts. If you’ve never tried it before, then your gap year in Australia might just be the best time to have a go.
The world famous Bondi Beach in Sydney is a good place to start, or catch a ferry across to Manly. Both beaches are popular for beginners, offering superb instructors while providing the full kit (wetsuit and board).
Learn about different waves and winds, and after a bit of practice on the beach, grab a board, emulate the Aussies and jump right in. They’ll have you popping up on the board and hanging 10 in no time!
Many adventure tour packages offer the chance to surf as part of a wider range of activities. Prices often encompass all activities, transport and meals so all you need to think about is having a great time.
If you are really serious about learning to surf, you can always try a surf camp trip which offers the opportunity of intensive surf lessons while travelling and camping across different parts of the country - an adventure tour with a difference. Whichever way you choose, you’ll have a great time!
