7 DAY SURF CAMP – $999
Surfing is not a sport, it’s a lifestyle. Our 7 Day Surf Camp Australia package will show you just that…we promise.
We invite you to join us on a 7 Day Surf Camp in our home town of Thirroul for a week you will always remember to share with us our life, our love, our passion for surfing. We want you to experience what it’s like to live as a surfer in Australia and we will attempt to teach you all you need to know to make that happen.
We take a great deal of care with everything so that you can feel like you’re at home (or better) and make sure that your time out of the water is just as good as the time we spend in it. From your big comfortable beds to delicious breakfasts and quality surfboards we have it all covered!
This is “More than Just a Surf Camp”.
Your Surf Instructors will be your guides for the week. They will take you to amazing beaches, introduce you to locals and local hangouts, take you to beautiful waterfalls and lookouts and show you a party or two if you ask. Our aim is to give you the best week of your life and we’re pretty sure you will enjoy it.

Great Week of Surfing
“Super friendly staff! Wonderful surf beaches. Great with some hiking when the conditions was not perfect. Clean and functional rooms with comfortable beds and possible to cook. The included breakfast was great, thanks for the crepes last day Lili! For the free evenings it was good to be close to the beach, restaurants and supermarkets. They also organized some nice BBQ!

AST Camp Locations
Depending on which surf camp you are attending, you will be visiting the following spectacular locations.
1. Thirroul - 1.2hr South of Sydney
Thirroul Beach is on the Northern end of the Wollongong City coastline. In fact, it’s only about an hour drive South of central Sydney which makes it a perfect destination for a trip out of the city. Driving South along the Grand Pacific Drive you can get a glimpse of the beautiful coastline this region has to offer, stop and have some lunch at Scarborough Hotel (best pub ever) and be sitting on beautiful Thirroul Beach before you even think about it. Coming from the South its only about 15 minutes drive from Wollongong City Centre making it a perfect beach to escape the crowds.
2. The Farm, Shellharbour - 1.75hrs sth of Sydney
There’s no cows on this farm!! There used to be though which is how this beach got it’s name. Actually when you see this beach you will wonder why ‘in thy Lords name’ the farmer actually sold his farm! The old farm that used to be here is now called Killalea State Park and the only history that can be seen are a few foundations of barns from a bygone era that used to stand here. While past surfers used to make the trek through the old farm and pay 20 cents at the gate to get in, it is now hidden from the road by a large housing estate that anyone can get to. It is managed by State Parks and is a beautiful mix of manicured grassland, lagoons, rolling hills, a campsite and two sensational surf beaches. One of these beaches is called ‘The Farm’, for obvious and recently explained reasons and the other is called ‘Mystics’ aptly named after the fogs that roll over the cliffs in Winter time from which Mystical (and perfect) waves appear. While Mystics is strictly for ‘advanced’ surfers only due to its incredible power and thick hollow barrels, ‘The Farm’ has a much more forgiving set up and presents beautiful lines of swell and turns them into peaks right down the beach. The South End here is the main break for the more advanced, but only a 5 minute walk up to the North End will give you long shallow rolling waves… perfect for beginners!
