Things to do around Sydney
North – An easy 90 minute drive north of Sydney, the Hunter region is one of Australia’s most popular tourist spots. A combination of beautiful countryside, rolling hills of grapevines, expansive surf beaches and rugged wilderness make the Hunter a must-see. Lake Macquarie (Australia’s largest saltwater lake), the World Heritage Listed Barrington Tops, and the historic townships of Hunter River Country are all found here.www.huntertourism.com
West – The Blue Mountains offer a natural wilderness of untamed bush, spectacular rock formations and native wildlife just an hour and a half west of Sydney. Walk through this famous World Heritage listed National Park with vast views reaching to the horizon and waterfalls cascading to the valleys below.www.bluemts.com.au
South – The villages of the Southern Highlands create the unique appeal the region is renowned for. Some say they are the Highlands’ best kept secret. Berrima, Bowral and Mittagong host the finest examples of what Australian towns looked like in the 1830s – they are lively country towns in the heart of the serene Southern Highlands that blend rural charm with modern sophistication.www.highlandsnsw.com.au
