With majestic mountains, lush valleys, the rich red of the outback and a coastline dotted with beautiful beaches and charming seaside villages, New South Wales has it all.
With 16 regions, all offering something different, New South Wales has an abundance of places to go and things to do to keep kids happy and entertained.
Sydney is holiday heaven, even for local kids, because there are so many attractions. With museums such as the Powerhouse and the National Maritime Museum, beach icons like Bondi and Manly, beautiful parks like Bicentennial Park, the Royal National Park and Centennial Park, and nautical attractions like Sydney Aquarium and Oceanworld Manly, you won't hear the kids saying, "I'm bored!"
At the Sydney Aquarium, the kids will love the Finding Nemo theme, with plenty of Nemos, Dorys and Bruces on display. You'll also find sharks, snakes and all sorts of sea creatures at Oceanworld Manly. Big kids can even dive with the sharks, if they are very brave!
Head out of the big smoke and all sorts of experiences await. Visit a mine or the School of the Air in Broken Hill or explore a bushranger's hideout in Uralla. Go bushwalking in the Barrington Tops National Park, see the animals at Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo, or go fishing on the banks of the Murray River. Explore Jenolan Caves in the Blue Mountains or go bananas in Coffs Harbour. Or perhaps you want to have a whale of a time on the South Coast or tackle the waterslides and other thrilling rides at Jamberoo.
The range of accommodation is just as diverse, ranging from fabulous farmstays to large resorts and excellent holiday parks.
