Summer is the perfect time for a seaside adventure and NSW has got you covered. From Byron Bay on the North Coast to Merimbula on the South Coast, the NSW coastline is home to beautiful beaches where you can laze and swim or get active and learn to surf, snorkel and dive.
Autumn, when the leaves turn from green to rust, is a delightful time to leave the house and enjoy outdoor adventures. The stunning scenery as the landscape changes makes bushwalking, cycling and horse riding even more appealing. Get amongst it at a national park and go camping, while it’s still warm enough.
Go on a road trip and discover picture-perfect towns in the Southern Highlands and at the foot of the World-Heritage listed Blue Mountains or head out to Country NSW to visit the CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope.
NSW may be known for its beaches, but it is also a winter wonderland if you know where to go. Head to the Snowy Mountains and make the most of the season. Kids can learn how to ski or snowboard and have the chance to build a snowman.
Winter is the perfect time to go on a whale-watching cruise on the coast, as these beautiful animals make their winter migration from May to November.
Check the events calendar for more winter festivals and attractions.
Take a family road trip and go camping at many of the national parks in NSW. For short breaks from Sydney, opt for the Central Coast, the Hunter or the Shoalhaven which are an easy two hour drive away.
