Key places to go
Across land and sea; from kangaroos to whales, NSW is a wonderful place to view animals in the wild. Spot turtles and whales at Solitary Islands Marine Park while at Montague Island you can view colonies of little penguins and Australian fur seals.
Whale watching from land or sea, dolphin cruises, swimming with seals, sea bird watching and other aquatic creature encounters are plentiful along the NSW coast, from Eden and the nearby Davidson Whaling Station in the south to the splendour of Cape Byron in the north. There are plenty of ways to get around and explore these beautiful environments, including nature tours offering the chance to learn about native animal habitats. Budderoo National Park, Fitzroy Falls and Morton National Park feature fantastic wildlife tours.
Meanwhile Lord Howe Island is a pristine place to go snorkelling and discover underwater life.
