Welcome to New South Wales

North of Sydney

An easy drive along the freeway just north of Sydney is the Central Coast and Hawkesbury, popular for its beaches, surfing, fishing and charter boat hire.  Newcastle, located at the mouth of the Hunter River is the gateway to the world famous Hunter Valley; well known for its fabulous wines and horse breeding.  Explore the rainforest wilderness of Barrington Tops or take a boat out on Lake Macquarie.

Further north are beachside towns like Forster, Taree, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour, each with its own unique attractions. Old Bar, just three hours up the highway from Sydney is an undeveloped paradise with beautiful beaches and abundant native wildlife.  Visit the Big Banana at Coffs Harbour to sample some of the locally grown bananas.  The tropical North Coast is known for its beaches, rivers and rainforest; it also has many interesting alternative–culture villages with unusual galleries and eateries. At Tyalgum, visit the quaint historic hotel and experience the country charm of this township. 

Explore the Northern Rivers Region with a drive along the Rainforest Way. Magnificent  Lord Howe Island  ("Lord Howe Love it Island", is what we call it ), is New South Wales best kept secret and is regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the Pacific.
