Share


Kick back on a beach of golden sands or head further afield to perhaps the Greatest Outdoors on Earth and experience New South Wales in all its glory. From majestic coastal vistas to stunning alpine terrain and verdant World Heritage parks, New South Wales is a place that must be seen to be truly appreciated. If your ideal holiday is one where your experiences span across food, adventure, arts & culture, nature, indulgence or simply relaxation, then NSW should be at the top of your list.

Enjoy the big city of Sydney, its great restaurants and shopping and the beauty of its world famous harbour. Then step away to soak up the local flavours of the regions of NSW. Take a leisurely drive, through the state’s lush farm regions or stop in the quirky towns and cosmopolitan centres. Head inland to the colourful Lightning Ridge opal fields and fossick for gems or cruise to the Mid North Coast to Port Macquarie and spend some time whale watching. Along the way you’ll be amazed at what you find – fine food and wine trails, lively festivals, Aboriginal heritage tours, amazing landscapes and friendly locals. New South Wales Tourism Website
