NEW SOUTH WALES

New South Wales
Brassy, bold, stately and old, New South Wales (NSW) hogs the lion’s share of Australia’s
population, and it’s where the country’s modern society was birthed. It’s the most eclectic
state and one of great contrasts; from the glitz of Sydney’s uberstyle bars and heart-breaking
harbour, to the lunar landscapes in the south’s big empty. History echoes in the sandstone
edifices and gracious old pubs speckled throughout small country towns, and alternative
lifestyles lure New Age neophytes in the beguiling hinterland of the far north coast. Ski
bunnies hit the slopes in the Snowy Mountains and surfers carve up the shoreline.
Mighty rivers quench the state’s dusty pockets and mighty mountains touch the sky. At
the top of the Great Dividing Range, the misty rainforests of Washpool National Park are
World Heritage listed. Gastronomes conquer appetites and vineyards in the Hunter Valley
(although the latter is sometimes the victor). For every traveller, the journey is easy; family
road trips are an institution on NSW highways, couples lose themselves in romantic hiding
spots, backpackers do the coastal hop, and retirees tack caravans to their nether regions
and take the slow route to wherever.
Naturally, with such a geographical playground to explore, NSW is ideal for mainlining
adrenaline – take your pick from canyoning, skiing, surfing, bushwalking, cycling, whale
watching and even goanna pulling (not what it seems). And beneath all of this majestic
landscape and its smorgasbord of activities is a bite-you-on-the-bum cockiness tempered
by larrikin smiles and warm hospitality.
