Looking for an amazing vacation location to unwind, with plenty of activities at your disposal? Here are 7 reasons why the beautiful state of New South Wales should be at the top of your list.
1. Visiting Sydney
A world travel hub with 6 million residents, Sydney is a global tourist destination for a reason! The Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, the Royal Botanical Garden, as well as near-limitless dining, bars and breweries, parks, beaches, museums, and other attractions means that there is sure to be something for absolutely every single type of traveler. You could almost fill an entire vacation just staying in Sydney alone, but there is so much more to be found just a short drive away!
2. A Thriving Beach Community
One of the most well-known beaches in the world, Bondi Beach, is a tourist destination all on its own. Known around the world, the crescent-shaped shore draws in with its golden sands, turquoise waters, and bronzed regulars. It even has its own TV show! Bondi Beach offers hotels and apartments for rent right next to the water, so you truly get a taste of the Bondi Beach lifestyle. In addition to Bondi, Manly, Coogee, Cronulla, Bronte, Watsons Bay, and Balmoral are all popular sports in the area. Beyond the border of the city proper are countless sandy shores for you to explore, dip your toes in, and get your tan on.
3. Incredible Hiking Options
For those who love the great outdoors, New South Wales offers many hiking opportunities to explore. With warm and sunny summers, and cool, temperate winters, year-round hiking can be had by all.
Just south of Sydney in Kiama are two great coastal walks from Wollongong to Thirroul. You can take the time to soak in incredible beachfront views, and take a dip in the water if the mood suits you! A short train ride from Sydney can bring you to famous hiking locations like the Blue Mountains, the Illawarra Escarpment, and the Southern Highlands. These rugged spaces offer everything from relaxing walks alongside swimming holes and waterfalls, to more strenuous activities for those looking for a challenge.
4. The Blue Mountains Are A Sight To Behold
Bordering the Sydney metropolitan area is the entrance to one of Australia’s true natural wonders, the Blue Mountain Range. The list of accolades this beautiful location boasts is truly wondrous by itself!
The Blue Mountain National Park itself represents a staggering 3800 Square Miles (10,000 Square Kilometers). It’s a UNESCO world heritage site, earning its protected status due to its lush flora and fauna. The Three Sisters rock formation is one of the most photographed locations in all of Australia! There’s truly something for everyone to do in the Blue Mountains!
5. Sports Lovers Are Flush With Options
Sydney is a massive hub for all sorts of sports, so visitors year-round should be able to find a game to go to at any time. New South Wales boasts clubs from Rugby, Australian Cricket, Tennis, Netball, as well as two separate Australian Football League clubs, as well as hosting Australia’s flagship motorsport, the Bathurst 1000, as well as the annual Sydney to Hobart sailing competition. For those looking for a piece of history, take a trip to the historic and gorgeous Sydney Cricket Ground, or the more modern Sydney Olympic Park.
6. Diverse Wildlife
New South Wales is a location teeming with creatures not seen anywhere else. You can go dolphin spotting off Port Stephens, Kangaroo sighting at Pebbly Beach in the South Coast, Whale Watching in Coffs Harbor, or go to Lord Howe’s Island and see a dazzling array of birds if ornithology is more your speed. The Taronga Zoo in Sydney Harbour hosts a veritable cornucopia of diverse wildlife, including koalas, lemurs, Malaysian sun bears, saltwater crocs, and 4000 other animals. Dubbo Zoo in the west portion of the state is a massive 741-acre open range nature reserve.
7. Hunter Valley Gardens
Out in the Hunter Valley wine region of New South Wales, Hunter Valley Gardens boasts 10 different themed gardens across 60 acres, each garden meant to represent different colors and fragrances. With imaginative names like Sunken Garden, Storybook Garden, Rose Garden, Oriental Garden, The Lakes Walk, Italian Grotto, The Indian Mosaic, and the Formal, Chinese, and Border gardens, each one is master-planned and exquisitely landscaped to represent the chosen theme for maximum immersion.
