Best place I've stayed in Australia! Reception is open 24 hrs and didn't mind we were 2 hrs late. The beds were super comfy and the whole place was super clean with steamy hot showers. You can hear the beach when you sleep and it's a short drive to the main beach in town. The receptionist was super helpful and... More

I was apart of the intermeditate - advanced week long Surfaris. The surf locations are fantastic, the guides are local, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We got waves everyday because the guide was able to find the best location using his local knowledge. The accommodation is super relaxed, clean, quiet and a great place to stay. All staff are very friendly,... More

Friday evening I received an email cancelling the trip "due to unsafe surf conditions". I emailed back asking about the break they... More

We stayed at this camp for a week and got to surf the most beautiful remote locations in New South Wales. Our instructor Blaky was awesome. He taught us not only how to surf but also surf etiquette and how to read the ocean. This was our favorite memory during our trip to Australia. We can't wait to go back.... More

Surfaris Surf Camp was one of the best weeks of my life. The accommodation was so relaxing, the days were filled with catching awesome waves, and the nights were filled with music and dancing. I had never surfed before in my life and was up on the board within the first hour out there. The staff are amazing; so friendly... More

Spent 5 days at Surfaris. Owners Michelle and Rossco were the perfect hosts. Their friendly, laid back, warm hospitality was all part of the chilled out and relaxed Surfaris atmosphere. Food was delicious and plentiful (looked after my food intolerances beautifully). Beds were clean and peaceful. Plenty of space to hang out and just chill, or swim in the pool,... More

I had a great week at Surfaris, best part of my Australia trip so far. The accommodation is basic bunk bed dorms, but very clean and comfortable. Great home cooked food every day and the surf lessons were great, I was a total beginner and really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend surfaris.

Crescent Head has some of the best surf spots in Australia, very nice waves and if you are lucky you get to surf with dolphins. The food is also very good and nutritious, home cooked by the owner. You can be in Sydney or Byron Bay they will pick you up from there to the camp or alternatively take a... More
