Being at the campground is a lifestyle in itself. We are dedicated to giving all that pass through superb experiences in a place where pristine bush camping meets a fun, friendly, relaxing and adventurous lifestyle. Our goal is to grow into a place for all to enjoy our unique beach side location, whether you are one of our international crew or a passing guest.
We achieve this by offering a work hard play hard ethos. We prioritise enjoyment in everything we do and are proud to be highly customer focused helping to make all visitors achieve memorable moments. Our idyllic beach location is situated between Goolawah and Limeburners creek National Parks and offers incredible nature experiences and a once in a lifetime chance to improve or begin your surfing journey. With 4 point-breaks within 10Km and a beautiful headland right in front that offers North Easterly to South Easterly facing beach breaks, there are waves for all abilities.
Life here gives you the chance to lead or take part in many activities such as: sunrise surfs with anytime use of our surf equipment, beach games, diving, snorkelling, fishing, local walks, yoga, heading to the pub for live music, nightly socials around a fire and much more. You can chill out on the beach or enjoy a cup of barista made coffee with awesome food from our on site Surf Fuel cafe run by Scott & Katie. We pride ourselves on being very eco and environmentally aware. We are big recyclers and work hard to keep our property clean and looking good. Every second Tuesday of the month the whole crew joins the local bush- and dune care group to volunteer. We spend the morning helping to de-weed exotic plants and make room for beautiful natives species. There is something here for everyone. We encourage all of our crew to get involved and interact with backpackers and other guests in building an atmosphere and having fun.
So are you looking to be part of a cultural exchange in a growing family of international guys and girls to work, live and socialise together? If so, we have spots available for (house)cleaners, groundskeepers/ maintenance, plumbers, builders, gardeners, cooks, entertainers and so much more! Maybe you have something to offer we haven't thought of? Just message us for a chat and to check our availability.
Our volunteers work for 4 to 5 hours a day, 6 days a week. We ask for a minimum stay of 21 days (3 weeks) and do not accept shorter stays. In summer we even ask our crew to stay for 7 to 8 weeks! We find that this allows you time to settle in, to get good at your jobs around the campground and that our Waves Crew is one big, happy family! If all goes well after the first weeks we are happy to talk about long term stays as well. In return you get free accommodation in our crew caravans/dorms/tent, 3 meals a day and roughly 20 hours of playtime everyday!
We're excited to meet you!

- Being quite remote we need to have a 'one menu fits all' attitude about our food. We all take turns cooking dinner every night, so cooking is important and a great family moment of the day! We do 1 food shop a week and since we all eat together we cannot cater to many different diets/wishes. Catering for vegetarians is difficult, but if you are not too picky it can be done. However, we can NOT cater to vegans/dairy/gluten free diets or heavy allergies. We're sorry, but is has proven to be too difficult. -
Here's a list of skill sets we love to have around:
- happy people! No matter what your skill set is, we LOVE seeing smiles all day
- General maintenance
- ASI accredited surf coach
- Yoga teacher
- (graphic) designer
Would you like to join us for a WHOLE SUMMER of beach fun and join the Waves Summer Crew of 2019-2020? You could be a part of the biggest crew we have all year! December & January are our busiest months of the year, so we set up stays a bit differently. Our Christmas Crew stays with us for at least 8 weeks to help us during these busy times. It's a really fun time to be on the campground when it fills up with happy campers for their summer holidays! The atmosphere is buzzing! If this sounds like it would fit you, you could be a part of the biggest crew we have all year. Celebrating Christmas, NYs and Australia Day with new friends from all over the world is an amazing experience! No need to feel homesick because you will still get to spend the holidays with a family. If you wish to apply for the summer crew you HAVE to be available for the full duration. Hopefully we'll here from you soon!
