New South Wales

New South Wales

Sydney is where you can find business, music, theatre and the arts rubbing shoulders with first class restaurants, and the many spectacular buildings both old and new.

New South Wales is bordered by Queensland, Victoria & South Australia to the north, south & west respectively. To the east it is bordered by the Tasman Sea, which is part of the Pacific Ocean.

The Australian Capital Territory and the Jervis Bay Territory are Federal enclaves of New South Wales. New South Wales' three largest cities, Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong, lie near the centre of a narrow coastal strip extending from cool temperate areas on the far south coast to subtropical areas near the Queensland border.  

The western slopes and plains fill a significant portion of the state's area and have a much sparser population than areas nearer the coast. The western slopes descend slowly to the western plains that comprise almost two-thirds of the state and are largely arid or semi-arid.

From the quiet shores of the first landing, to the hustle of the capital Sydney, you will be astounded at the progress Australia has made. Sydney is the largest and most recognizable city in Australia. The Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge have become icons of Australia. But New South Wales is so much more!

New South Wales, the first frontier! It from here that the rest of Australia began its journey. So not only do you get to enjoy all it has to offer, but you also get to witness a bit of history also.
