Beaches, Parks and Walks in NSW

Leaving the urban jungle behind and getting back to nature is one of the best ways to unwind – and in NSW, you'll find a huge range of natural wonders, beaches, parks and walks to choose from.

Jervis Bay on the South Coast is one of the State's best kept secrets. Booderee National Park has areas of stunning natural beauty and a string of pristine beaches. There are also spectacular coastal walks all over the region and great views to check out at the Cape St George Lighthouse and Ben Boyd Lookout.

The Three Sisters and Echo Point are the stand outs in NSW's Blue Mountains, but this World Heritage-listed region has breathtaking walks to do, too. In Blackheath, the Anvil Rock look-out is a must, and the Grand Canyon Walk and Blue Gum Forest in the Grose Valley are both challenging but worth it.

Head north to Port Stephens where you'll find Stockton Bight sand dunes, the largest coastal sand mass in NSW – and great for exploring on a quad bike or 4WD tour. Stunning walks can be found in the Tomaree National Park, where you'll find bushland, dunes and stunning sandy beaches.

Further north, Byron Bay is also famous for its natural wonders including the Cape Byron State Conservation Area. Nearby Lismore is also worth a visit for its World Heritage-Listed Border Ranges National Park, and Black Rocks in Bunjalung National Park. At Black Rocks, you can camp, do a bushwalk or take a dip in Jerusalem Creek, stained by the tannin of the surrounding paperbark trees.
