Autumn is the perfect time for the family to get outdoors and make the most of NSW. Swim at beautiful beaches, hike in national parks, cycle through the bush or see native animals up close. If you prefer to stay indoors, you’ll find plenty of museums, galleries and observatories to explore.
For an adventure high in the trees, kids as young as seven can soar on the world's longest roller coaster zip line, just 80-min drive from Sydney on the Central Coast. Or try Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures on the South Coast. Kids of all ages will love the waterslides at Jamberoo Action Park.
An unforgettable destination for a family holiday is the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage wilderness near Sydney. In Katoomba, just two hours by train or car from Sydney, your family will enjoy breathtaking views from Echo Point Lookout over the Three Sisters and you can enjoy stunning views by aerial cable car with Scenic World.
Destination NSW acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the state’s first people and nations and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and occupants of New South Wales land and water.
