Almost two-thirds of the state’s population live in Sydney, Australia’s largest city. While Sydney is a destination in itself, there’s a lot more to New South Wales. Take its coastline, for a start: from Byron Bay in the north to Eden in the south, there are endless sandy beaches, foaming waves and solitary landscapes to enjoy. Further inland, the Hunter Valley produces delightful wines, the Blue Mountains show nature at its rugged, wildest best, and the outback sits like an opal waiting to be discovered.

Fast facts about New South Wales

Where is it? New South Wales is in eastern Australia.

How do I get there? Fly to Sydney from every Australian city and a number of regional airports. Regional airports within New South Wales such as Albury and Coffs Harbour are also serviced regularly, but flights tend to be more expensive. You can also travel by train from Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and a number of regional stations. Buses depart from a huge number of central and rural stations around Australia.

When should I go? New South Wales is beautiful in every season. For a seaside holiday, visit between December and February. To ski in the Snowy Mountains, visit between June and August. Autumn and spring offer pleasant weather, beautiful foliage and fewer crowds.

What should I do? Hike through the spectacular Blue Mountains, live out your surfing fantasies at Byron Bay, see the sights and lights of Sydney, spot whales in Solitary Island Marine Park, watch the sunset at Cathedral Rocks, explore the Jenolan Caves, spot Pooh Bear as you weave your way along the mountain roads to Batemans Bay, and don’t miss the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
