Family holidays on the waters of NSW
Holidays by the water in NSW
Plan a road trip, choose one of the countless pristine locations and head for the water! No matter what time of year, there are plenty of water-based activities to enjoy with your family, from whale watching and houseboating, to kayaking and coastal walks.
You can also get close to dolphins and turtles kayaking through the waters of Byron Bays beautiful marine park, or go swimming with seals at Montague Island on the South Coast.
The coastal national parks offer many enjoyable activities for the whole family. Worimi National Park in Port Stephens is home to more than 32 kilometres of sand dunes. Thrillseekers can cruise on quad bikes or ride a sand board down a 30-metre-high dune. Explore the dunes on foot, or go fishing and birdwatching. Take the Yuraygir Coastal Walk in Yamba, located in the isolated, unspoiled and picturesque Yuraygir National Park.
