New South WalesAustralia

Sandy beaches with subtropical breezes, big-city sophistication, and moon-like landscapes make New South Wales one of Australia’s most diverse states. It’s here that the majority of Aussies live, especially in loveable Sydney, but there are plenty of other cities vying for your attention, too. Full of modern sensibilities and historical landmarks alike, it’s a place where you can look forward or back, as you like. Head inland from the coast to enjoy a mountainous hinterland and craggy beginnings of the nation’s Red Centre, with Darling River slicing right through it all. You’ll also findAboriginal villages, cattle stops and rugged towns of all shapes and sizes. With so much to explore, how should you enjoy NSW holiday packages? Thoroughly, of course. So prepare your social media following for some epic new photo albums. You’re headed to New South Wales!

Stuff to DoLooking for a wild time? Then NSW is right where you need to be. There are more wildlife refuges, zoos and preserves here than you could possibly see in one trip. Good thing we have so many NSW packages so you can come back again, huh? Start with the open-range Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo or the Taronga Zoo in Sydney. Then there’s the Australian Reptile Park for those who prefer nature’s cold-blooded and scaly children.

If Mother Nature herself is more your style, see the ocean (while surfing, snorkelling or boating), the mountains (while climbing, skiing or camping) or the forest (while hiking, camping or river kayaking).

City LifeAs the NSW capital, Sydney is also by far the largest city in the territory. In fact, it’s the largest city in the country. And since it has a reputation to keep up, Sydney has plenty to offer urban cowboys of all kinds. Check out iconic Sydney Opera House near Sydney Harbour Bridge—both located on, you guessed it, Sydney Harbour. Grab one of our Sydney car rentals and steer north to Newcastle to enjoy vintages from the nearby wine country. Check out the Big Banana in Coff’s Harbour (because why not?) and tons of Aboriginal culture in Wagga Wagga on New South Wales holidays, too.

Where to VisitAs with most Australian territories, the coast is where most of the population is. That means once you move inland, you’re in for some rugged adventure on NSW holidays. Head to the Central West for the craggiest places; follow the Darling River as it winds its way through canyons, leaving small, round lakes in its wake. Check out the dunes at Mungo National Park or the bushlands of Gundabooka National Park.

Can’t wait to get started? We don’t blame you! That’s why we put all of our New South Wales holiday packages in one place. Navigate to the one that calls to you and book it today. Having trouble choosing? We’ve got your back. Just book one of Wotif’s Sydney packages. Then you can worry about the details when you get here.
