NSW map

New South Wales is a south-eastern state of Australia, with Sydney as it’s capital, and home to iconic imagery of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

A diverse and populous state, with a coastline of great destinations, including coastal and inland cities and towns, national parks, surfing and beaches.

There is of course some iconic and renown regions including the Australian Snowy Mountains, the rugged Blue Mountains Region (that is home to the prehistoric Wollemi Pine, temperate rainforest, the 3 Sisters and Mount Tomah Botanic Garden), Hunter Valley region (popular for its wineries), as well as our coastal regions from the South Coast (that encompasses Batemans Bay, Eden, Jervis Bay, Merimbula, Montague Island), up through The Great Lakes, Central Coast, Mid North Coast, and Far North Coast. Inland New South Wales’s vast outback region encompassing Broken Hill, Bourke, Louth and Lightning Ridge, just to name a few of the unique and fantastic destinations.

For those seeking a driving getaway, New South Wales offers a number of ‘drives and road trips’. Many of these drives offer a great way to explore NSW, from the scenic Greater Blue Mountains Drive, the Legendary Pacific Coast drive, Kosciuszko Alpine Way, Snowy Mountains Highway, Snowy Valley Way, Darling River Run and the Rainforest Way. There is even the popular Sydney Melbourne Coastal Drive.

In addition to our new articles, we will be bringing back some of our own experiences from our archive among others.

Most regions are still welcoming visitors, but if you are unsure after the recent droughts, fires and COVID-19, contact the local visitor centres for more information.
