Travel Tips:

New South Wales lies on the east coast of Australia. The State capital, Sydney, is Australia’s premier gateway and the largest city in Australia. Well serviced by flights from across the world, NSW also has a network of regional airlines, trains, buses and coach services making it easy to get around.

One of the best ways to enjoy the stunning national parks of NSW is on foot. For enjoyable and safe bushwalking, plan ahead, check weather conditions, wear appropriate clothing and tell someone where you’re heading off to. Make sure you carry drinking water, wear a hat, good walking shoes and pack your sunscreen.
