New South Wales Holidays

From soaring mountains to breathtaking national parks, glamorous city scenes to quiet coastal towns,
New South Wales is one of Australia’s most stunning and varied states. Offering incredible hiking trails, hundreds of pristine beaches, spectacular waterfalls, fascinating history and architecture, there is something for everyone on New South Wales holidays.

Sydney, Australia’s largest city, serves as the perfect gateway to the rest of the state. Famed for its iconic landmarks and relaxed café culture, start your New South Wales holiday with a tour of the Sydney Opera House, soak up the sun on the world-famous Bondi Beach, look out for whales on the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk or for those feeling a little more daring, embark on a Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and view the city from up high. A short drive from Sydney you’ll find the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage Area, home to the magnificent Three Sisters which loom over the primaeval valley floor. Here, you can spend the day connecting with nature as you hike past epic waterfalls and eerie caves.

Endless scenes of unspoilt nature

The state of New South Wales boasts over 1590 kilometres of coastline, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. In the far north, en route to the Gold Coast, is Byron Bay, a surfing hotspot that glows with a laid back, hippy charm. Port Stephens is a hotspot for dolphin and whale sightings or head to Jervis Bay to see some of the whitest sand in the world.

We recommend the Sydney, Rock and Reef itinerary for anyone visiting Australia for the first time as it visits all the must-see sights. Feeling a little more adventurous? The Australasia Encompassed tour takes in Asia, New South Wales, New Zealand and the US. From action-packed adventures to relaxing getaways, we’ve done it all.
