Where should I stay in New South Wales for a romantic escape?

With cosmopolitan cities, tranquil countryside and sweeping bays, New South Wales has it all. Here are some of the most loved-up spots in the state:

  • Jervis Bay. If you're hoping to spend as much time as possible on the beach, Jervis Bay should be your go-to. And, what a beach it is.
  • The Blue Mountains. A UNESCO-listed world heritage site laden with bushwalks and hidden waterfalls, there is no better place to discover the beauty of the New South Wales countryside.
  • Hunter Valley. Wine, cheese and well… wine. Hunter Valley is laden with vineyards and your stay is likely to involve sampling produce from a good number of them.
  • Southern Highlands. Another gastronomical delight in New South Wales, take a short break to the Southern Highlands to try unique cool-climate wines, discover picture-perfect valleys and admire colourful gardens.
  • Lord Howe Island. If a splurge is what you're after, Lord Howe Island is it – and technically in New South Wales. This Pacific paradise limits island guests to just 400 at a time. You'll need a few days off over the weekend, but it's well worth it.
  • Byron Hinterland. While Byron is known for its beautiful beaches, travel just a few kilometres inland and you'll find tranquil rolling hills that produce the area's fresh produce.
  • Mollymook: The south coast of NSW is blessed with pristine beaches and a laid-back vibe that's absolutely contagious.
