New South Wales is the region of Australia surrounding Sydney in the South East corner of the country. It is a huge area, with a great deal of diversity, from the wilderness of the outback or the serenity of the Blue Mountains to the cosmopolitan, vibrant city of Sydney, but wherever you take you New South Wales holiday, there will be a huge amount to entertain visitors. New South Wales is Australia’s prime state, attracting more foreign visitors than any other area of Australia, and for good reason.
It is hard to know where to start with an area so diverse in natural resources and so rich in both tourist attractions and leisure activities.
When people first think of New South Wales holidays, images of the Sydney Opera House and of glorious, empty surfing beaches spring to mind, and there are many glorious golden sand beaches lining the whole coast. Lazing on the soft golden sand, topping up your tan or preparing yourself to tackle the surf, there is nowhere like the beaches of New South Wales to enjoy a day at the beach. Much of the population of New South Wales is located along this coastal strip, and it is in the many towns and villages which lie on New South Wales’ beaches which you will find cultural attractions including fairs, festivals and galleries.
The endless countryside of New South Wales is incredibly diverse, from the sun baked deserts to the dense forests and flower strewn mountains. There are many companies who organise tours of New South Wales’ outback regions, giving you a great sample of what the Australian outdoors are all about, and taking New South Wales accommodation deep in the country gives you an unprecedented understanding of this magnificent place.
The more adventurous visitors who decide to call New South Wales home for a couple of weeks will be overcome by the amount of adrenaline fuelled sports which you can enjoy. Tourists and locals alike are given the change to enjoy endless mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, skydiving, para-gliding or caving. Those who wish to explore the outback in a little comfort can easily take a remote New South Wales home, and take a guided wildlife and nature tours before returning to their luxury accommodation and enjoy the sunset in style.
