Travel through New South Wales to discover a State of great natural beauty, with plenty to see and do


The capital of New South Wales, Sydney, is surrounded by national parks, mountains, golden beaches and dynamic regional centres sprinkled throughout the State.

The regions of New South Wales are within easy reach of Sydney - by car, train or plane. A range of holiday experiences awaits visitors keen to get out and explore Australia's most populous State. Learn to surf, try hot-air ballooning, horse trails, skiing, sampling fine wine and food - all of these experiences can be enjoyed in New South Wales.

You'll have plenty of opportunities to see native animals in the wild - from whales and dolphins to emus and kangaroos. Stop for a pub lunch in an outback hotel or enjoy freshly baked pies on the verandah of a heritage cafe.

You can visit World Heritage sites throughout New South Wales. Mungo National Park is part of the Willandra Lakes area in Outback NSW, Lord Howe Island is less than two hours' flight from Sydney or Brisbane, Gondwana Rainforests of Australia include more than 50 parks and reserves stretching from Barrington Tops to Mount Warning, and the Greater Blue Mountains Area is just 90 minutes' drive from Sydney.
