New South Wales is a state of Australia – the first colony established by the British Empire in 1788. Once encompassing almost half of Australia’s landmass, its borders are now confined to the middle of the sunny East Coast, where it is home to some of Australia’s greatest landmarks and wonders. Sydney is the state’s capital, and here will find the beloved Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo, Bondi Beach and many other Aussie icons. Take a short drive west and you’ll soon find yourself surrounded by deep teal eucalyptus forests, and of course the rocky planes known as the Blue Mountains.
Tourists flock from all over the world to explore Australia – a land girt by sea. So we’ve decided to show you just a few reasons why you simply cannot miss a visit to New South Wales.
