New South Wales Holidays

Sydney Harbour

That sprawling harbour, world-renowned Opera House and the iconic Blue Mountains – Sydney in all its glory is often the first thing international visitors to Australia see when they fly in. But it’s just the beginning of the treasures that the state of New South Wales has to offer. Motoring out of the city and along the coast, charming beach towns abound, complete with fresh fish and chips and pro surfers out from dawn to dusk. And then there’s the wildlife. Look out for migrating humpback whales in Port Stephens, bottlenose dolphins in Jervis Bay, seals off Montague Island and a plethora of technicolour fish off Lord Howe. A New South Wales holiday offers the perfect fusion of wildlife, city culture and laid-back living.
