Calling all hardcore adventurers! If you’re constantly seeking a thrill and love the outdoors, we have the place for you and it’s called New South Wales.
So, where is New South Wales, you ask? It’s basically where everyone wants to go when they visit Australia, including Sydney, Byron Bay, the Blue Mountains and more. Not only does it have some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia, but it also offers rock-climbing, white water rafting and more. When it comes to outdoor adventures, NSW has got it all.
Hiking and rock-climbing in the Blue Mountains
Not only are the Blue Mountains perfectly picturesque, but they’re also super fun! You can choose to hike and admire the landscapes, gardens and waterfalls or satisfy your adrenaline craving by rock-climbing. Either way, you’ll still get those spectacular views!
Now this is a must-do at some point in your life and why not try it out in New South Wales, one of the best coastlines in Australia? Complete with caves and a diverse range of aquatic life (including nurse sharks and fur seals!), diving should be a no brainer. Be sure to hit some of the top sites such as Fish Rock Cave (located in South West Rocks, NSW), Lord Howe Island, Jervis Bay and Julian Rocks Marine Reserve off Byron Bay. Although the water gets a little cooler in the winter, diving is possible year round here.
White water rafting
If you’re really looking for an adrenaline rush, white water rafting should definitely be at the top of your list. Start at grade one if you’re looking for more of a mild ride or if you’re feeling super adventurous, you can dare to try grade six. Some popular spots for rafting include Nymboida River and Barrington River.
You can’t truly experience Australia without learning how to surf! Luckily, New South Wales has some of best surf spots in the continent. Whether you’re just a beginner or a seasoned professional, you can visit Bondi Beach, Port Stephens, Newcastle or Byron Bay for some great waves. Don’t forget to grab a bite to eat when you’re done!
