For the first-time visitor to Australia, New South Wales has it all: long stretches of sandy beaches, bustling cities, sprawling outback and snowy mountains. A tour of all this state has to offer could easily fill the itinerary of a fantastic holiday.
To the west are the vast dusty plains of the outback with old mining towns and apocalyptic landscapes. World Heritage-listed subtropical rainforests in the north of New South Wales provide habitat for rare and endangered species. Kosciuszko National Park in the Snowy Mountains contains snowfields and dense forests and along the coast you’ll find sun, surf and sand and a strong beach culture.
