I think everyone who comes to Australia or lives in Australia should go on this camp! You won't regret it! And try to make sure you can be there as long as possible! 3 days isn't enough try to be there for at least 5 days!

Had a great time at surf camp other than the bed bugs! Doesn't seem like much was done to get them taken care of either... otherwise I had a great time. Good food and amazing company. The instructors were all super friendly and helpful!

Bed bugs are an unfortunate pest that travel between locations with out the host knowing. They spread from luggage being put on a bed after picking up a "passenger" from a previous location. Surf Camp does everything possible to ensure we eliminate the pests with regular inspections and treatments. All our beds have Bed Bug lock covers and are made...

If you have ever wanted to learn to surf this is the only way. As a 39 year old from Melbourne, I didn't know how comfortable I would feel being around mid 20s backpackers. Not only was it not an issue, I was appreciated for being an older person within the group. More importantly, within three days I could surf...

I'm writing this review on the last day of my surf camp. Surf Camp Australia is a very well-run program with highly skilled instructors who have great personalities. They ensure that everyone is participating and go out of their way to help you. The food, which is included, is pretty tasty, especially considering how many people they have to cook...

I had the best weekend with Surfcamp Australia. It was a great experience. The surf camp is really chill and a perfect stay during your surf camp. You can chill, play games or go to the beach in between the surf lessons. The instructors are really good and the food is delicious! Everything is really well organized. Would go back...

Where to begin? It was amazing. I went alone and was their from the 21st to the 25th of Nov, 2016. The staff are fun, friendly, approachable, join in with your games and jokes, and also (as expected) are brilliant surfers who clearly are in love with their jobs and in love with the sport! It's refreshing to be taught...
