The beaches up and down the Pacific coastline might take the headlines

But you’ll find much to explore too in New South Wales’ inland mountains, hinterland and on to the outback. Big cities, surf towns, wineries and wilderness. Soak up the sun, surf and soul of Sydney, head north to the bohemian Byron Bay, and bushwalk to waterfalls in the Blue Mountains, one of Australia's most stunning peak ranges.

New South Wales tour reviews

New South Wales highlights

Sydney

The glittering jewel in the east coast's crown. You’ve got the big-ticket Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and iconic beaches on the walk from Bondi to Bronte.

Byron Bay

This laid-back surf paradise is all about the beachside and wellness vibes. Join in yoga sessions and head to the hinterland to taste fresh produce straight from the farms.

Blue Mountains

Hidden waterfalls, sweeping gorges, towering gum trees, cliffs, canyons, and small towns with their own personalities cover this dramatic mountain landscape.

Jervis Bay

Long stretches of white sand, sparkling waters, and one of the best places on the east coast to spot dolphins and whales.
