Golf

The championship course at The Sands is a classic links course that is a challenge in the wind, but offers low scoring opportunities when it is calm.

The course requires golfers to plan their shots with multiple bunkers ready to catch players who always reach for the driver off the tees.

Players will also compete for nearest the pin and long drive comps.

Carts are stacked with balls, clubs, tees and few surprises to make your golf day special.

Great Ocean Road Tour / Tree Surfing

Explore the top third of the Great Ocean Road on your way to Livewire Park above Lorne.
The tour starts with a quick trip past Bells Beach, followed by a few stops at scenic locations overlooking Bass Strait, and a quick photo op at the Memorial Arch.
We then head to Livewire Park for two hours of tree surfing and zip lines.
If we have enough time, we can stop in at Rogue Wave Brewery for a quick ale at Airey’s Inlet with some of the best views in the country.

Horse Riding

After matching guests to horses, the ride starts off slowly along narrow trails allowing
riders to gain confidence in the saddle. There are a few trotting and cantering sections as
the trail rises to a ridge line that overlooks the Otway Ranges.
Guests can expect to see plenty of bird life and the occasional wallaby, kangaroo and
echidna. The ride ends back at the homestead where guests will be able to thank their
horses with a carrot and friendly pat.
We finish the event with a cool microbrew beer back at the homestead.

Mountain Biking

The Surf Coast isn’t just a haven for surfers.
The Anglesea and Point Addiss Heathland offers a great range of mountain bike paths that
include single track and wider 4WD trails. We can also include challenging hills and
expansive coastal views for your group.
We use single suspension mountain bikes for the two hour rides.
The rides starts with ice cream at the Great Ocean Road Ice Creamery.
We then assign bikes and helmets, adjust seats and provide a safety briefing. When then
head out on a quiet road before heading into the bush. Once riders get familiar with their
equipment and improve their skills, we gradually take the group on more advanced trails.
The ride includes spectacular views over Bass Strait and a visit to Bells Beach. We finish
up back at the resort.

Spa Treatment

Enjoy a 60 or 90 minute spa treatment session at the Surf Coast’s number 1 Day Spa. Salt Air Spa Retreat is located in the Torquay hinterland in a rural setting.
With 5 treatment rooms, this activity has a maximum of 10 slots. While guests aren’t getting facials, massages, or exfoliation treatments they can sip wine at a Torquay oceanfront restaurants.

Surf Lesson

Enjoy a real board meeting on the Surf Coast.

Our two hour lessons use soft beginner boards that are safe and user-friendly. After a safety briefing and lesson on the sand to work on technique, guests will head out into the surf. If they follow the instructor’s advice, they will be riding waves in no time at all.

The lesson location will depend on the surf conditions on the day. If the surf is big we can head to the beautiful Point Addiss region. If the waves are small to medium, we ride the waves in Torquay, Bancoora or Jan Juc.

Your driver will also act as a photographer, hopefully capturing that magical moment when guests ride their first wave.

For more experienced surfers, the coaches can provide positioning and paddling advice, and improve your wave riding skills.

Surfing

Surfing lessons are a great healthy way to bring your team together for an unforgettable
experience. Our instructors have Surfing Australia qualifications, and we will have your team up and
riding in no time.
The two hour lessons take place at the most suitable beach on the Surf Coast. When the
swell is up we head to Point Addis with it’s gentle spilling waves providing a great
playground for those who have never been on a board in their lives. On small surf days we
can head to Torquay or Jan Juc.
Adventure for Life will also professionally photograph your lessons, ensuring that your
delegates receive a personal souvenir from the day. All images are delivered on disc or
can be put up on the big screen if your group is having a post surfing function.
If your group is competitive, we can also run a tag team surf competition at the end of the
lesson.
