2/10  Surfs up

Going for a surf is undoubtedly one of the most quintessential Aussie experiences and is sure to provide the kids with hours of fun – not to mention several laughs as they watch Mum and Dad’s attempts to catch a wave. Boards are available to hire from most beaches, while many also offer lessons to help you get up and – hopefully – stay up as you ride a wave into shore. Sydney’s Manly Beach – a scenic 30-minute ferry ride from the city – is one of the most famous surf beaches in the country.

Price: Manly Surf School runs daily two-hour group lessons, costing £50 for adults and £35 for children.
