Spring School Holidays

Entrance to Bimbadgen Estate cellar door, Hunter Valley

Whether you are travelling with young children or teenagers, you should be able to create an itinerary during your spring breaks in NSW that appeals to adults and children of all ages.

Looking for NSW spring events? The Hunter Valley is a great place to start, offering excellent food and drink, fascinating attractions and plenty of things to see and do.

Make sure to check an events calendar before your visit, but you can be rest assured there will be something on offer - or simply spend time at one of Hunter Valley's famous landmarks such as Barrington Tops National Park and Lake St Clair, which will be open all-year round.

No visit to NSW would be complete without experiencing its stunning beaches, with options aplenty whichever end of the coast you want to travel.

Heading north? Byron Bay or Port Stephens are extremely popular, with both offering waterside spring attractions such as kayaking, fishing, swimming, surfing and snorkelling.

If you prefer a more sedate pace, you can visit local towns and villages to try out the freshly caught seafood at cafes and restaurants or try a dolphin-watching tour - an experience not to be missed during spring holidays in NSW.

Those travelling by car may wish to explore the Central Coast's Legendary Pacific Coast touring route, which takes you north from Sydney to Brisbane through some of the best national parks, beaches and natural landscapes available on NSW spring holidays.

The south coast is no less stunning, with Jervis Bay, Huskisson, Nowra and Shoalhaven all offering an eclectic mix of beautiful natural scenery, quaint seaside retreats and locally sourced food and drink. Why not try Folk by the Sea, presented by the Illawarra Folk Club. This fun festival invites people to listen to the lilting tunes of world, roots, Celtic, bluegrass and gypsy music over 3 days in the picturesque seaside town of Kiama.
