Getting around NSW

Zig Zag Railway, Blue Mountains

NSW’s system of roads, as well as its integrated public and private transport network, makes it easy to get around and explore the state on holiday. There are also options to suit all budgets, whether it’s a 2-hour train journey to a regional centre or a flight to one of Australia's state capitals.

If you know where you want to go, it’s a good idea to book as far in advance as you can; often this will result in cheaper fares than waiting until the last minute, especially for flights and coach journeys. Some modes of transport will require identification on check in, so make sure you have that with you. Always arrive a little earlier than you think you need to, just in case.
