NSW summer school holidays
Endless fun at the beach
The spectacular NSW coastline is blessed with hundreds of beautiful beaches and waterways. Take your family on a seaside adventure and relax on white sands and enjoy water sports, from swimming, snorkelling and surfing to kayaking, fishing and sailing.
Accommodation is available to suit a range of budgets. You can also hire kayaks, surfboards, boats and other equipment at popular destinations. If you're planning a river adventure, houseboats are available for hire on the Murray and other inland or coastal waterways.
Just north of Newcastle is Port Stephens, an idyllic location with more than twenty golden beaches and scenic inlets where you can swim and even dive with dolphins, a popular activity during the summer holidays.
Beyond the hinterland you will find the Tweed Foodie Fest in nearby Murwillumbah. This event is five days of delicious food-focused events, including pizza making classes and regional food tours.
Jervis Bay is home to a stunning national and marine park, with beaches that boast some of the whitest sand in the world. Adventure seekers can test out their watersport skills at Merimbula, one of the best places to go canoeing, scuba diving, boating or fishing in NSW.
