Thirroul is a small coastal town only an hour train ride through the Royal National Park from Sydney.

It is one of the Northern Beach suburbs of Wollongong and is surrounded by the Illawarra Escarpment.  There are over 20 beaches accessible with a range of waves from the famous Sandon Point, to the beach breaks of Thirroul, Bulli, Port Kembla and North Wollongong.  There is something for everyone.  We are also licensed to teach surf classes at The Farm, an amazing beach inside Killalea State Park and also a National Surfing Reserve.  Easily the best beginner/intermediate wave in Australia.

The best surf conditions come through Late Summer, Autumn and Winter but to be honest, we generally get waves all year round with the range of beaches on offer.

The water temperature is ranging from 20-23 degrees celsius in the Summer/ Autumn and from 18-20 degrees celsius in the Winter/Spring.

Thirroul beach is only 10 seconds walk away and there are over 20 beaches close by accessible by walk, skate or bike.

Whether you want to surf, relax, party or hike, there is something here for you.


Our Surf Camp is newly renovated and located within 10 seconds walk to the beach and 2 minutes walk to the centre of Thirroul.

Thirroul is a thriving surf town located on the Northern Beaches of Wollongong which is Australia's 9th largest city.  It definitely doesn't feel like a city though, with beautiful beaches and uncrowded waves.

Located only an hour train ride through the picturesque Royal National Park it is the perfect location to enjoy an amazing Australian surfing holiday.  There wildlife to see, amazing bush walking, rainforest waterfalls to jump off and the beautiful Illawarra Escarpment to climb.

The locals are laid back and very friendly toward visitors and everything in this town is a convenient walk away.  Whether you want to lay on the beach, ride the waves, drink at the local pub or go shopping in the city centre you are very close.  

All rooms have ensuites, fridges and basic cooking facilities as well as in room TV's. The beds are King Singles or Queen and are top of the range mattresses for your sleeping pleasure.  There is also a fully equipped kitchen available for use and an onsite bar serving local craft beers and healthy food.

Breakfast is included daily from our restaurant and bar.

Just think of waking up to the smell of the ocean and rainforest, eating a big healthy breakfast then spending the day surfing, hiking, swimming, skateboarding and exploring with friends.... there's a few good party places around as well!

Our Surf Camp is laid back, relaxed and has a family vibe with everyone being treated as such.  There is a reason why we are Sydney and Australia's number 1 rated Surf Camp.


Like everywhere in the world, the best months to get great waves are Autumn and Winter.

In Australia that means March to August.  In this period we get tropical swells from the North and the new Winter swells forming from the South.  Winds go offshore during this period meaning that they start to get some West in them.  Perfectly groomed powerful waves.  

In the Spring and Summer, however, we still get a lot of waves due to the variety of waves we have here. In Summer the winds generally come from the North, making The Farm the place to be, but the North corners of Bulli and Sandon are pretty good also.  

Most of these waves are within walking or riding distance and offer incredible diversity.  This is a great choice in all seasons for all levels.
