New South Wales (NSW) is an incredibly diverse state, and no matter what time of year you visit, there is always somewhere to explore. The region is easy to navigate around for those wanting to road trip through; otherwise, flights or train travel alternatives are available.
There's no question why so many travellers flock to NSW each year to get a taste of what the region has to offer. Of course, Sydney is the favourite amongst travellers, with its beach-meets-city lifestyle and dynamic atmosphere. However, beyond city life and into the countryside, you'll find stunning sites like the Blue Mountains, Snowy Mountains and the Hunter Valley. For a sea change, discover Australia's highest peak, Mount Kosciuszko and in the winter months make the most of the snow season, and as the weather heats up, explore the stunning coastline from Byron Bay down to Jervis Bay; with world-class surf and crystal clear waters. A trip to the Hunter Valley is a must-do for wine and gourmet food lovers, taking you on a culinary adventure through rolling hills with a backdrop of Broken Back Range.
Finally, if you're short on time, consider basing yourself in Sydney and hire a car so you can a few take day trips to surrounding areas like the Blue Mountains. Otherwise, if slow travel is what you're aiming for, start in Byron Bay and make your way south along the coastline, venturing inland to explore the region.
