New South Wales
Home to shimmering Sydney Harbour, red earth deserts, glorious mountain ranges, stunning coastlines, captivating rainforests and pristine beaches, New South Wales offers the essential Australian experience in just one state!
Only in New South Wales can you experience two of Australia’s greatest icons, the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge – you can even climb to the top of the bridge with BridgeClimb for a bird’s eye view of Sydney Harbour. New South Wales is also home to Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley, which is just a two-hour drive away from Sydney and is known for its local Semillon variety.
New South Wales has six World Heritage Areas, including the beautiful Blue Mountains National Park, where you can immerse yourself in nature by hiking, cycling or driving around the region and witnessing the blue haze from the eucalyptus forests that give the Blue Mountains their name. Or perhaps plant yourself by the sea on golden sand beaches – Byron Bay on New South Wales’ north coast is one of the most popular places to sit back and relax.
New South Wales is known as Australia’s events capital with a world-class events calendar including Vivid Sydney, the largest event in Australia, which takes place from 24 May – 15 June 2019.
