Five of the most stunning spots in Australia to explore once we can travel

It’s time to give 2020 a reboot - and we’re itching to start planning the next adventure.

With the potential easing of travel restrictions approaching, we want to help you create the perfect Sydney and New South Wales trip.

Home to the iconic Hunter Valley wine region, surfers haven Byron Bay and the breathtaking Blue Mountains, there is something for everyone in New South Wales. And of course, any trip to New South Wales should feature a stop off in Australia’s largest city, Sydney.

To help you get started we've made a list of our top five favourite things to do in NSW.

1. Sydney Harbour – Take a harbour cruise and check out the iconic sights of Sydney including the Sydney Harbour Bridge & Sydney Opera House, followed by a delicious meal and panoramic views at Quay, one of Australia’s most awarded restaurants. 

2. Glamping – Spend a romantic night sleeping under the stars in a clear Bubbletent located in the secluded Capertee Valley,  some 200 kilometres north-west from Sydney.

3. Wine, wine and more wine – New South Wales has 14 wine regions, including Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley. Enjoy spending a day tasting the produce with the Around Hermitage Wine and Food Trail.

4. The stunning coastline - New South Wales' coastline stretches for over 2,000 km, with hundreds of picture-perfect spots for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing. Check out many of these in Sydney – from the world-famous Bondi and Manly beaches to the more secluded bays and ocean pools, soaking up the sun while lounging on the beach is a must.

5. Get up close with the wildlife – Home to kangaroos and koalas, to penguins and humpback whales, you’ll be able to experience it all!
