New South Wales has it all, from quaint rural towns to a paradisiacal coastline. Surfers should definitely visit, as it is the ideal region to enjoy the waves. Sydney, the capital, is a must-see.

With the iconic silhouette of the Sydney Opera House and the spectacular arch of the bridge etched against a backdrop of glittering ocean and soaring skyscrapers, Sydney Harbour is Australia's quintessential postcard image. Newcastle is a popular destination for music, art, culture and surfing where you can find fantastic beaches. Watch dolphins in Port Stephens Great Lakes Marine Park, walk the sand dunes and investigate the culture of Aboriginal peoples. Dive with reef fish at the Solitary Islands Marine Park in Coffs Harbour. Relax in Byron Bay, an arts center that offers camping and whale migration.
