welcome to
new south wales

There’s so much to love and even more to explore in New South Wales. This epic state sitting along the East Coast of Australia really has it all. 

From the big city buzz of Sydney, to the quiet beach towns of the Central Coast and the vastness of the stretching outback, landscapes change dramatically across the state of New South Wales. 

Additionally, New South Wales also has some amazing islands to explore off the coast, including Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island. Within New South Wales you can also find the Australian Capital Territory, home to Canberra, the capital city of Australia.
