New South Wales
New South Wales has endless unspoilt beaches, breathtaking natural treasures and one of the world’s most famous and vibrant cities.
Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge or take the ferry past the Opera House to Manly. Do a day trip to the Hunter Valley vineyards or the romantic Blue Mountains. Restore your zen on the beach in Byron Bay and see dolphins play in the clear waters of Jervis Bay. Bike ride and dive on Lord Howe Island and visit the world’s oldest ceremonial burial site at Mungo National Park. Horse ride, hike or hit the snowfields in the Snowy Mountains or head west for Tamworth’s country music and Moree’s natural artesian spas. Hang-glide and spot humpback whales in the new-age beach paradise of Byron Bay.
See the Big Prawn in the bustling holiday town of Ballina and scuba dive off the Coffs Coast. In the Tweed Valley, you can fish the Tweed River and see the southern hemisphere’s biggest eroded volcanic crater. On the rainforest-fringed North Coast, classic Aussie surf culture mingles with World Heritage-listed national parks, hinterland villages and great food and wine. Whatever you do in New South Wales will be an investment of time you definitely won’t regret.
