NSW Attractions

Attractions in NSW

In NSW, browse galleries to discover the work of local artists, step back in time in historic museums or enjoy the regions' often unique attractions, shopping and entertainment.

It's easy to soak up the art, culture and history all over Jervis Bay on NSW's South Coast. If you're into antiques, there's great shopping around Berry and Kangaroo Valley. You'll also find flower farms, settlers' museums, Aboriginal arts and crafts to buy and much more.

Country NSW is equally rich in history, architecture and attractions you won't find anywhere else. There are museums dedicated to everything from fossils to fish, military history to writing implements. You'll find unique botanic gardens to explore, arenas where you can hone your riding skills and the chance to go fossicking for sapphires. The truly adventurous can even go gliding in Corowa!

A thriving artist community can be found in NSW's Blue Mountains, where there's a range of local galleries to check out, lots of beautiful architecture and for keen shoppers, a huge range of gift stores and more in Leura and Katoomba.

Broken Hill is also a long-time haven for artists and filmmakers, and the region's many galleries – including Art With Hart, where Pro Hart's daughter Julie exhibits – are well worth a look. Another must-see attraction is the Living Desert just out of town, and its sandstone masterpieces which were created as part of the Sculpture Symposium in 1993.

Keen anglers should definitely head to NSW's Snowy Mountains and the Big Trout of Adaminaby, a popular trout-fishing spot. The region's attractions also include a platypus reserve, memorabilia museum, historic buildings and a number of art galleries. If you're keen to shop, check out stores selling country crafts, Akubra hats – and, of course, a huge range of ski and adventure gear.
