New South Wales Holidays

New South Wales holidays land you in one of Australia’s most stunning and varied states. There’s something for families, couples and solo travellers alike – from soaring mountains to vibrant coral reefs, dynamic cities to quiet beachside communities.

On the south eastern coast is Sydney, Australia’s largest city. Famed for its iconic landmarks and relaxed café culture, it serves as the perfect gateway to the rest of the state. Bondi is the best known beach in the area, and with 1,590 km of coastline to choose from you’re bound to find your own favourite. A short drive from Sydney you’ll find the Blue Mountains, which loom over the primeval valley floor. In the far north, en route to the Gold Coast, is Byron Bay – a surfing hotspot with bags of laid back, hippy charm.

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.
