Boasting bustling towns and untouched wilderness, New South Wales is a traveller’s dream come true.

In its far north, the coast of New South Wales meets the glorious Gold Coast. Follow the coast south and you’d travel through Byron Bay, Newcastle and Sydney, all the way to the border of Victoria. That’s 2,000km of some of the most scenic water’s edge you’ll ever discover. Beyond the surf breaks, NSW offers more than 180 national parks and reserves.

Then, of course, there are the cities. Sydney is the largest in Australia, with every attraction imaginable, but some of the smaller centres are just as enticing. Whether you’re a wine buff who wants to spend tasting time in the Hunter Valley, or you have kids who’ve always dreamed of spotting whales in the ocean, New South Wales is a destination ripe for discovery.
