Summer School Holidays
No visit to the region would be complete without visiting NSW beaches - and with some of the most stunning coastlines in the country, it's not a destination that will disappoint.
If you are travelling along the north coast, you will not want to miss out on a summer afternoon at Byron Bay, particularly at its Main Beach, which boasts stunning stretches of white sand and fantastic views of the distant mountains.
Also in the north is Port Stephens, an idyllic location with 26 golden beaches and a number of scenic inlets - although nature lovers may be more inclined to go dolphin watching, an extremely popular activity during the summer holidays.
Taree in the north coast also hosts the Manning River Summer Festival - a month-long family extravaganza in December that has a rodeo, sand sculpting and movies under the stars.
Keen to explore the south coast? Jervis Bay and Merimbula offer amazing beaches for tourists spending their summer breaks in NSW.
Jervis Bay is a national park and a marine park, making navigating this beautiful area - by foot or by water - a highlight of any summer in NSW.
Alternatively, adventure seekers can test out their watersports skills at Merimbula, one of the best places to go canoeing, scuba diving, boating or fishing in NSW.
