New South Wales
With buzzing cities and untouched wilderness, it's a traveller’s dream come true
In its far north, the coast of New South Wales meets the glorious Gold Coast. If you followed the coast south, you’d travel through Byron Bay, Newcastle and Sydney, all the way to the border of Victoria. That’s 2000km of some of the most gloriously scenic coastline you’ll ever see.
Beyond the surf breaks, NSW offers more than 180 national parks and reserves, from the majestic Blue Mountains to the adventure sports hotspot of Kosciusko National Park in the Snowy Mountains.
Then, of course, there are the cities. Sydney is Australia's largest, most famous and most international city, but some of the smaller centres are just as enticing. Whether you’re a wine buff who wants to explore the tastes of the Hunter Valley, you have kids who’ve always dreamed of whale-spotting, or you just need to slap your eyes on the Opera House and Sydney Harbour, New South Wales is a destination ripe for discovery.
