GapForce Australia Adventure

Join one of our groups for an action-packed 7 week tour combining travel & adventure with volunteering on Australia’s famed East Coast. Your journey begins in the awesome city of Sydney before heading north to Brisbane via the legendary Byron Bay. You’ll spend 2 weeks volunteering on an environmental conservation project, a great way to give back to this amazing country, before continuing north into Queensland.

Sailing on the Whitsunday islands, 4 x 4 jeep rides on Fraser Island and snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef are just some of the highlights. Your epic adventure ends with a week in Cape Tribulation, a stunning paradise where the reef meets the rainforest!

For those looking to stay on and work in Australia, why not add on our optional visa & work assistance package to set you on your way!

Priceless experience

10/10

Going to Australia was one of the greatest experiences of my entire life. Visiting the Blue Mountains, Whitsundays and the great barrier reef were unreal. I had a fantastic time hanging out with my group as by the end of the trip we had all become good friends. Our tour guide also did a stellar job as she was incredibly easy going and a overall pleasure to be around. I did so many things that it could not all be summed up into one review. I highly recommend doing this trip as I will never forget the experiences I had.

Great trip

10/10

Australia was an unreal trip. Everyone that was in our group was cool and the tour leader jamii was really fun to be around and also very prepared and had everything under control the whole time. I came a little late because I booked my flight too late but everything got sorted in the end and I joined the group in Byron bay that was really cool. Just the whole vibe of the trip was great everyone was so nice all the time. I'm definitely going to be visiting Australia again very soon!

How can this program be improved?

Conservation work could be more involved instead of planting a few trees and calling it good.

The Most Beautiful Place on Earth

10/10

I had a great time in Australia. The experiences and memories will remain with me for the rest of my life. Our tour leader, Jamii, was amazing - she was great company, enthusiastic and helped the group gel, relax and have fun. Australia is special for many reasons - we saw some incredible sunsets, beaches, wildlife and night skies full of stars. Some highlights were snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, exploring Fraser Island in 4 x 4 cars, surfing and a hike to the Blue Mountains. I very much enjoyed my trip and I would recommend GapForce to everyone.

Australia

10/10

I have just completed four weeks in Australia with gap force and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Our leader Jamii was amazing and made the trip. She looked after us all so well and found lots of fun activities for us to do. Throughout the four weeks we had so many incredible experiences including sky diving, going to frazer island and sailing the whitsundays to name but a few. The other people on the trip were amazing and we have made friends for life with people all over the world.

Once in a lifetime experience

10/10

Just been on the April gapforce tour for 4 weeks, it was absolutely amazing had so much fun and did so many actitivies and made friends for life. The leader jamii was amazing and more like a big sister and she had really good ideas and suggestions of activities to do, she really made the trip even better! I loved exploring the east coast and doing a wide range of activities and amazing things like stargazing on the overnight cruise and swimming in tea tree lakes in Fraser Island. It was such a good trip I'd recommend it though anyone who was interested.

Australia Adventure January 2017

10/10

I've just returned from the four week Australian Adventure, and have had the most fantastic month of my life! Having arrived in Sydney a couple weeks prior to the beginning of the trip I was able to settle down before meeting my group and jumping straight into activities and adventures. All of the activities made available to me were of fantastic quality and excitement and I couldn't have asked for a more exciting programme itinerary. My group leader, Felicity, was also such a fantastic and helpful character who was willing to help in any way possible to ensure we had the most amazing adventure. Overall, I had such a fantastic time and would highly recommend this to anybody else who is not sure if travelling alone is something they'd be interested in or feel comfortable with, or just fancies being in a group of amazing travellers!

Incredible trip with Ozforce

10/10

I have recently returned from a short stint in Australia. I arrived in September to be greeted by the rep of OzForce, at the time Bec. She was so helpful and was always there when we needed here. The first 2 weeks she introduced us into Sydney life and showed us the ropes. Without her guidance I dont think my friend and I would have had such a good time during our 4 months over there. Having known people who tried to go about doing it themselves it seemed alot easier with OzForce. Through OzForce I met some awesome people who I actually ended up living with in Bondi and travelling with in Australia. Bec helped me throughout my time in Australia and I was always in contact with her, as were the boys I was with, when travelling letting her know my next stop and my plans. I met some incredible people through my trip to Australia and my OzForce experience. If I was to do it all over again I wouldnt change a thing!!
