NSW is made up of a number of diverse regions. Winter in the Blue Mountains region features breathtaking scenic views and historic landmarks, plus some of Australia’s finest hotels and guesthouses.

If it’s a relaxing beachside holiday you’re after, there are plenty of towns along the NSW North Coast that fit the bill. The Central Coast region incorporates the major towns of Terrigal and Gosford, and as you travel further north you reach Newcastle, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour. Don’t forget to extend your stay to Byron Bay, which is Australia’s most easterly town, and also famous for its artistic community.

Do grapevines feature in your winter dreams? The Hunter Valley is a world-class wine region. A popular setting for weddings and honeymoons, the Hunter region includes Pokolbin, Singleton and Lovedale and offers fresh air, gorgeous scenery, fine dining and, of course, great wines. A warming glass of Hunter shiraz is perfect for a cool winter evening. Winery tours and wine tasting are popular with visitors.
