Country NSW

Discover the country charm

The NSW coastline might stretch for 2,000 kilometres, but with an area of 800,000 square kilometres, the state is more red dirt than sand. All the more reason to leave the Pacific Ocean behind and immerse yourself in all that Country NSW has to offer – ancient Aboriginal culture, extraordinary produce made by passionate producers and rural towns where the welcome mat is always out. Immerse yourself in the peace and quiet, and return home refreshed.

Central West

Discover three acclaimed wine regions brimming with boutique cellar doors and award-winning restaurants. Beyond the gastronomic delights, you'll find charming heritage villages, friendly locals and postcard-perfect scenery.

Greater Western Plains

While the sprawling open-plain zoo may be the main drawcard of this interesting region in the centre of the state, linger longer for Australia's only Dark Sky Park, stunning caves, aviation history and more.

Southern Highlands

Home to heritage towns bordered by rolling hills and national parks – not to mention the antique shopping and thriving food and wine scene – the Southern Highlands are one of Sydney's favourite weekend getaways.

Southern Tablelands

Host to pretty farmlands, local eateries dishing up paddock-to-plate produce, scenic towns brimming with history and plenty of natural beauty, the Southern Tablelands offers much more than a stopping-off point en route to Canberra.

The Riverina

Known as Australia's food bowl, the Riverina makes for a tasty escape with an abundance of fertile farms, orchards and vineyards. Enjoy fine dining, food festivals and farmers markets, and meet passionate producers.

The Murray

Named after the mighty river that flows through this southwest area of New South Wales, The Murray brings together natural wonders and unique experiences, from foodie cruises on paddlesteamers to one of the best regional art galleries in the state.
