Outside Sydney

There are many exciting and enjoyable things to do within a few hours drive of Sydney. If your schedule permits, we encourage you to look outside Sydney and explore more of NSW.

Regions close to Sydney include the Hawkesbury River, Central Coast, The Hunter, Blue Mountains, Illawarra, Port Stephens and the Southern Highlands.

Mountains, rivers, eucalypt-filled valleys and rich tablelands are all within a 2.5 hour drive of Sydney along with two World Heritage-listed areas, the second oldest national park in the world, 40 national parks and reserves along with renowned wine regions.

If you feel like venturing a little further north, think about visiting world famous Byron Bay, in the hinterland on the Far North Coast of NSW. Byron Bay is home to Australia's most easterly point, Cape Byron. With its numerous beaches, unspoilt hinterland, and relaxed beachside lifestyle, Byron Bay is one of Austraila's most popular tourist destinations.
