New South Wales Feature


Top Reasons to Go to New South Wales

Getting in Touch with Nature: Exotic birds are prolific in the Blue Mountains and North Coast regions, and Canberra isn't known as the "Bush Capital" for nothing.

The Great Australian Bite: Fine restaurants have taken root in the Hunter Valley, as well as in the North Coast towns of Coffs Harbour and Byron Bay. Seafood can be excellent, and don't miss fish-and-chips on the beach.

Outdoor Adventure: The region's mountains and national parks offer opportunities for walks and hikes, horseback riding, rappelling, canyoning, and rock climbing. Outdoorsy folks will enjoy Canberra's wide-open spaces and cycling or walking around the city's Lake Burley Griffin.

World-Class Wineries: The Hunter Valley has an international reputation for producing excellent Chardonnay, Shiraz, and a dry Semillon.
