New South Wales

My favorite state – love it because it incorporates some of the most beautiful beaches, beautiful bushland and bush walking opportunities, the gorgeous Sydney harbour scene, and the Blue Mountains area is colder and the air is fresher there.
Sydney’s Opera House is not the only reason why one should visit this marvelous city. The Sydney harbour area with the famous Harbour Bridge, the ‘Rocks’ area (the place where the first settlement took place) and Chinatown are only a few of the other places worth a visit. To the east, some of the fines beaches of NSW can be found. Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte are excellent beaches, not only for sunbathing but also for surfing. And just when you think you’ve already seen the best when it comes down to waves, set off for Byron Bay at the nothern tip of NSW, also better known as ‘the surfing Mecca’.

The Blue Mountains and the Snowy Mountains, both part of the Great Dividing Range, are located in NSW. The Blue Mountains National Park is an excellent spot to do some bush walking, whether for a short trip or for a several days’ walk, and this is only one of the many NSW National Parks. The Snowy Mountains offer the perfect places for skiing and when the snow melts again, there is always the possibility of a wild water rafting trip, not to mention bush walking and mountain trekking into areas offering some of the most unique and beautiful plants and wildlife in Australia.
