New South Wales – Things to do

New South Wales Attractions

Relax on the beach

Australia is home to some of the world’s best beaches and New South Wales is no exception. As Australians spend much of their time enjoying water sports, barbecues and relaxing on the sand, the beach is the place to go for a slice of authentic Australia. From the deserted white sand vistas of Green Patch in Jervis Bay to vibrant Bondi, there’s an astonishing variety on offer.

Vineyard tours

New World wines are rightly celebrated today. The Hunter Valley, located just outside of Sydney, boasts some of Australia’s best wine producers – from large traditional concerns to small biodynamic start-ups. The region is particularly famous for its Sémillon – a dry, citrusy variety that’s perfectly paired with long lazy summer afternoons. Once you’ve explored the vineyards, there are some superb fine dining restaurants in the area.

Take a hike

To the west of Sydney, you’ll find the Blue Mountains – a looming range of sandstone cliffs and canyons set in lush eucalyptus forest. The sunsets here are truly extraordinary. Take your pick from hundreds of trails, including the classic 44 km Six Foot Track and the considerably more relaxed 1.8 km Princes Rock Walk – which offers a breath taking view over Mount Solitary.
