Destination guide

All the Aussie delights of New South Wales

Calling all surfers and city slickers, beach-lovers and adventure buffs, New South Wales is Australia's most talked-about and vaunted region. From the salt-sprayed sands of world-famous Byron Bay to the buzzing blocks around Sydney Harbour, it artfully fuses everything from feel-good beach resorts to bohemian bars and rich museums. But that's not all. New South Wales vacation rentals in the Blue Mountains are a trekker's dream, while others offer travelers a chance to leave their footprints in the vast, dust-caked Aussie Outback.

Things to do

New South Wales and Sydney combine

Don't forget that you can bag New South Wales vacation rentals in Sydney. It's a city of bucket-list sights and wonders, and a fine place to begin any adventure Down Under. You can spy out the mighty arches of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Then, it's on to Taronga Zoo, where the kids will encounter long-necked giraffes, see striped tigers and come face-to-face with Australia's own koala bear. The Royal Botanic Gardens are another jewel, sprouting rose gardens, a fernery and a humid tropical pyramid glasshouse. And there's The Rocks – a living history museum and bustling shopping precinct, combined.


Life on the New South Wales coast

For many, a New South Wales vacation rental will be a ticket to the most celebrated length of coastline in the world. Whether you're sipping superfood cocktails and pulling yoga poses with the New Agers of Byron Bay or carving the peaked breaks of the Pacific Ocean at Bondi Beach – maybe even on your first surfing lesson – there's oodles to get stuck into along the NSW shore. Wild camping, clifftop hiking, rock climbing and scuba diving are also all on the menu, thanks to the pristine nature parks and coast, while places like wide Jervis Bay make whale watching and dolphin spotting a possibility, too.


Good vibes all year in New South Wales

It rarely gets too chilly in New South Wales's cities and on the coast, where the winter months of June, July and August stay relatively mild. They are also the time to seek out New South Wales vacation rentals close to the Snowy Mountains, for access to one of Australia's few ski resorts. Spring starts in September – it's a highlight for hikers hitting the Hunter Valley and whale watchers on the coast. Summer is prime for surfers and beachgoers, lasting from December to February, with temperatures in the 80s and 90s.

Natural features

New South Wales's waves and wondrous mountains

New South Wales is the poster boy for Aussie beaches. Its glimmering sands run the whole length of the coast, from the family resorts close to Sydney to the wild and wide-open bays of the Myall Lakes National Park and the dune-backed sands of Bongil Bongil National Park, where eucalyptus woods spill down to the Pacific Ocean. Surrounding the coast are seas where marine life flourishes – glimpses of whales and sharks and dolphins are common. Inland, you can find the hazy Blue Mountains and their deep gorges, and even the Snowy Mountains, rising to soaring Mount Kosciuszko – Australia's highest – at 2,228 meters.
