The first Monday in October is Labour Day, a public holiday in NSW, which gives you a long weekend to explore the state. Head to one of the beautiful beaches as the weather warms up, take a road trip or explore incredible national parks over the three-day weekend that marks the start of spring.
Sometimes a spring break is all about finding the perfect accommodation. If your idea of idyllic involves collecting fresh eggs for breakfast, feeding playful alpacas and embracing the fun of country living, check into a memorable farm stay. If the sunnier days are calling you ocean (or lakes and rivers), pick a waterfront stay. If you want to go off-the-beaten path, then an off-grid hut, cabin or retreat might be the answer. But be prepared: these stays often have no Wi-Fi or phone service.
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.
