As the first British colony in Australia, New South Wales was a large pioneering settlement made much smaller by the establishment of other states and territories. Australia’s largest city of Sydney acts as the state capital; a true icon and the most recognised in the whole country. Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House give the city a famous skyline, while the beaches of Manly, Bondi and Port Jackson cement it as one of the most fabulous holiday destinations. 

Away from Sydney, check out the majestic Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley, NSW’s second city of Newcastle, easy-going and artistic Byron Bay, historical Mungo National Park, and the tranquil cycle paths of Central Coast, Wollongong, and Nowra. It’s the ultimate adventure state.
