With a wealth of wonders within easy reach of the state capital of Sydney, New South Wales is one of Australia’s favourite regions to base an Australian holiday.
For a first adventure into Oz, we recommend a stay in New South Wales, basing your holiday in vibrant Sydney; from where many of Australia’s favourite destinations are within easy reach.
You could first begin with a few days exploring this great city. Take a boat trip around the Sydney Harbour and stop for photos by the famous Opera House; take a day trip to Bondi Beach for a surf in the sunshine; wander around the botanical gardens and trendy neighbourhoods; dine out in style in world-class eateries, and finish your day with a superb night’s sleep at one of our Sydney hotels.
You could then venture to the Blue Mountains – just a 90-minute drive from the state capital - for a few days discovering the stunning natural landscapes of New South Wales, ensuring you don’t miss the Three Sisters and Katoomba Falls.
Then head north to the wineries of Hunter Valley and the beaches of Byron Bay, or south to the pistes of the Snowy Mountains or to the Sapphire Coast for a whale watching trip.
Or for something completely contrasting, take the two-hour flight from Sydney to New South Wales’ Lord Howe Island; often described as ‘paradise’, this is a World Heritage-listed setting of exceptional beauty.
Our Travel Specialists have superb knowledge of Australia and can tailor a New South Wales tour to your exact requirements, and make personal recommendations for your unique holiday to this stunning part of the world.
