Sydney is just the start

It's often the first thing international visitors to Australia see; Sydney in all its iconic glory. The capital, with its sprawling harbour, truly is spectacular, but it's only a small part of what the Australian state of New South Wales has to offer. Drive out of the city and along the coastline and you'll find an endless string of charming beach towns where the fish and chips are fresh and the surfers are out in force at sunrise.

Visit at the right time of year and you'll also have the chance to see some of New South Wales' aquatic wildlife: migrating humpback whales in Port Stephens; bottlenose dolphins in Jervis Bay; fur seals on Montague Island; and tropical fish off Lord Howe Island. The state's coastline is a haven for marine wildlife. But you need to venture beyond Sydney to experience it. And, thanks to our vast range of tailor-made holidays, we can help you do just that!
