It’s definitely the perfect place for hardcore adventurers! So are you wondering where is NSW? It is where people want to go when they visit Australia aside from Sydney and all.
Spit Bridge to Manly Coastal Walk
This is Sydney’s top coastal walks, about seven miles long. I know you think that’s too much and will take you three to four hours. But don’t think about the distance you need to go through! Because when you get to the top, you will surely not regret seeing the most beautiful views of the beaches. Don’t worry about thinking you’ll get tired because there are several places to stop along the way. You can take a break by taking a quick dip in the ocean or you can learn some Australian history.
Camel or horseback riding in Port Stephens and Toowoon Bay
Aside from the beaches and long walks, why not try something new in NSW? I know you’ll love to have some adventurous photos riding camels and horses posted on your Instagram and Facebook! Try to spend your time with camels in the beautiful and awe-inspiring wilderness in Port Stephens. If you want to learn some horseback riding, then visit Toowoon Bay- Australia’s largest horse riding center. Enjoy spectacular rainforest trails and lush green valleys!
Australia is known for having amazing beaches in the world. If you are in Australia, you cannot completely claim that you’ve been in this country without even learning or trying to surf! New South Wales is rich with some of the best surf spots in the continent. Whether you’re a professional or a beginner, visit Bondi Beach, Port Stephens, Toowoon Bay, or Byron Bay to catch the best waves.
White Water Rafting
If you like to keep some adrenaline rush flowing through your body, then white rafting is your answer! This should be on your list if you are such a thrill seeker. You can start first at grade one if you’re looking for a moderate ride or if that sounds boring to you then dare to try grade six. Try visiting Nymboida River and Barrington River.
Ocean addict? Whether you are not or you are, at some point in your life, you should try scuba diving in one of the top coastlines in Australia! NSW has an entire cave and a diverse range of aquatic life. Diving is not really that complicated, so no need to worry. Diving is possible year round here even if the water gets a little cooler in the winter.
Hiking and Rock-climbing in the Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains is undeniably a perfect picturesque place! Not only do you enjoy spectacular views but you can also have fun hiking. Or experience pure adrenaline rush by rock-climbing.
