Oz Intro has ramped up the already epic itinerary to a whole new level. Featured on the new itinerary is an absolutely unforgettable weekend in Port Stephens, a beautiful region on the coast a few hours north of Sydney. Here we break down some of the weekend's highlights!
On the ride up to Port Stephens, you’ll stop in Umina for a totally rad surf session. You’ll get one-on-one surf instruction from awesome surfers, wet suits, sunscreen, and everything you need to start your journey to becoming a lifelong surfer. Throw up a shaka at your mates as you cruise by shredding up the surf.
See An Awesome Sunset
After a quick stop at the bottle-o (bottle shop), you’ll head out to the dunes where you’ll see the sunset of a lifetime. To complete the Instagram, you’ll also get to see camels chilling on the dunes. Australia really does have it all!
Meet Some Kangaroos
Next stop on the ride up – wild kangaroos. Seeing kangaroos is on everyone’s bucket list, but OzIntro will do you one better; you’ll get to hop out to feed and pet dozens of wild kangaroos. You’ll see adorable baby kangaroos in their mama’s pouch, and ripped giants up to 2 meters tall. Don't worry though! The kangaroos are super friendly and they love it when you rub their belly.
BBQ’s, Flip Cup, and Bonfires On the Beach
At night, you’ll stay at Melaleuca Surfside Backpackers Hostel, which is a convenient 5-minute walk from the beach. We’ll feast on an all you can eat BBQ, play some heated games of flip cup then walk down to the beach for a bonfire under the stars. This is livin'!
Saturday morning you’ll load into some army style, all-terrain trucks, and take an off-road drive into the biggest sand dune formation in the southern hemisphere. After a short ride, you’ll get to the edge of a MASSIVE sand dune. We’ll hand you your board and then you’re all set. Flying down the dune you’ll reach speeds over 40 kilometers per hour. Woohoo!
