New South Wales & ACT

From the buzz of Sydney to the eucalypt-laden Blue Mountains.

In New South Wales you’ll enjoy the big city buzz of Sydney and its famous harbour. Or relaxing amongst the free-spirited beach vibe of Byron Bay. Hike through the tranquil Blue Mountains, discover a gourmand's paradise in the enchanting Hunter Valley, or journey to the island paradise that is Lord Howe.

In Sydney, national parks, harbour and sun-drenched beaches are all around. Wherever you look, there is an amazing view – ocean, forests or spectacular skyscapes alongside iconic landmarks. The city is also home to cosmopolitan clubs, lively bars, eclectic dining, festivals, museums and world-class art galleries. 

Beyond the city, the Blue Mountains National Park is packed with excellent hiking trails and abundant wildlife. North of the city, the Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s oldest premier wine growing regions. Further afield is Lord Howe Island, a UNESCO World Heritage listed paradise where you can experience some of the world’s best day hikes, snorkelling on a coral reef, and much more.
