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.

You can be in Sydney or Byron Bay they will pick you up from there to the camp or alternatively take a... More

Great surf/safari experience - I did 5 days excursion and the things that made this camp awesome were 1: excellent staff that were friendly and good surf coaches, providing the extra time with people that needed it and a "hands-off" approach for those that were ahead of the group. 2: Clean facilities - the camp itself was clean and well...

Surfaris surfcamp is absolutely one of the most awesome experiences Down Under. Fun, sports, meeting new people, chill atmosphere its got it all! The camp is spacious and green. The crew very professional and friendly. Such nice people from the owner to the gardener. The food is healthy and finger-licking and the campfire jamsessions are memorable! I had never surfed...
