What to see & experience around Sydney & in New South Wales
Right on Sydney’s doorstep you’ll find the iconic Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the new(ish) billion dollar development at Barangaroo. Sydney has over 100 picturesque beaches, from calm, sheltered bays and secret coves to busy surf beaches and world-famous tourist destinations like Bondi Beach.
NSW has more than 200 registered National Parks, some very small and others the size of a country, and each park has its own unique characteristics.
To the South Coast you’ll find coastal towns of Ulladulla, Batemans Bay and Eden on the far south coast. Check out historic Berry, beautiful Kiama, or head inland to the nation’s capital of Canberra. Canberra is home to nearly 80 embassies and high commissions. Most are in the suburb of Yarralumla. Take a leisurely drive and see traditional and modern architecture from many countries. See the spectacular traditional design of the Chinese Embassy and the long-house style of the High Commission of Papua New Guinea.
Go North and you’ll find the Central Coast, Newcastle, Port Macquarie, the beautiful NSW tablelands which include some of the best motorcycle roads in the world (if that’s your bag) Yamba and the Northern Rivers Region, famous Byron Bay! If the hippy lifestyle is more your thing, check the crunchy towns Bellingen or Nimbin.
There are so many destinations between Sydney and Brisbane, it’s a great challenge to fit them all in.
If wine is your thing, 2 hours from Sydney is the Hunter Valley with over 150 wineries around the rolling green hills you’re sure to find the perfect drop. West from Sydney, you’ll quickly run into the Blue Mountains (visible from much of Sydney on a clear day) an amazing spot for a weekend getaway with myriad B&Bs, Hotels, and AirBnBs on offer, with amazing walking routes through the Blue Mountains, some of which have been around since Victorian times and we’re created by the government of the day to show off this stunning region.
Continue west and you can visit the Jenolan Caves, Bathurst with its annual race that attracts more people each year than any other event across Australia, to Mudgee or Orange – both renowned wine towns – and out to Dubbo for its famous zoo.
