Day 1: Sydney to Crescent Head
Set the tone for this authentic Aussie adventure by crossing Sydney's iconic Harbour Bridge as we venture toward the surfing haven of Crescent Head.
Day 2: Crescent Head to Byron Bay
Try a barrel of a different kind with an early morning private surf lesson on one of the best beaches in the world. Whether you're just starting out or have surfed before, here's your chance to become a bona fide surf master. Our road trip continues with a traditional BBQ lunch and a cruise past the Big Banana icon before pulling into Byron Bay - where you can burn incense, sip chai and practice yoga all in one day.

Day 3: Byron Bay
Anti-McDonald's and anti-anything mass produced (but pro juice bars, beer gardens and beards), Byron is so laid back it's a wonder it hasn't fallen over. On your free day here, hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, skydive, or watch whales breach from the lighthouse in winter. Pretty sweet, huh?
Day 4: Byron Bay to Brisbane
Leave the blissful buzz of Byron behind you as we head to BrisVegas (aka Brisbane) - but first up is the famous Surfers Paradise beach. Later, take a dip at Brissy's man-made beach before planning your next adventure.
