New South Wales
Much more than Darling Harbour, New South Wales is the first state of Australia by name and reputation.
While Victorians might obsess over who does better coffee, people in New South Wales are already packing their surfboards for a trip to the northern beaches.
Putting even Queensland’s coastline to shame in parts, the section between Sydney and Newcastle, and let’s face it, all the way up to the hippy hub of Byron Bay, is what most people consider the epitome of an Australian lifestyle.
With national parks, food and wine and Australian wildlife everywhere you look, if you haven’t explored New South Wales yet, you’re in for an absolute treat. Also, Sydney pubs have a certain vibe that we can’t explain, like we’re waiting for Paul Hogan to pop in at any given moment.
Maybe one day he will!
