Adventure and Sport

New South Wales is the perfect destination for everyone with a sense of adventure in their hearts. The diversity of terrains and varied weather conditions combine to form a state with a host of options when it comes to adventure sports. Whether you wish to snowboard or ski across the fresh winter snow of the Snowy Mountains, hike across the Blue Mountains or scuba diving at Lord Howe Island, New South Wales has plenty to offer and then some.

If fishing is your vice, New South Wales has you covered. With pristine lakes, rivers and estuaries scattered around the state; New South Wales is paradise for all anglers. Of course, you can do a lot more than just fish when there’s water. You’ll be hard pressed to find a more ideal location to rent a boat for the weekend and to enjoy a relaxing cruise down the Myall Lakes or the Murray River.

One of New South Wales’ main draw cards is it’s world class surfing beaches. No trip to NSW is complete without visiting Bondi for a spot of sun, or cruising the waves of some of the beaches on the North Coast. No matter what your experience level, there is a beach for you to enjoy the surf.
