Cheap flights to New South Wales

The oldest state with the largest population in Australia (as of March 2015), New South Wales - sitting on the east coast of the continent - is known as the ‘Premier State’ of the country. Bor-dered by Queensland, Victoria and South Australia, New South Wales is known for its geogra-phic diversity and boasts everything from lush rainforests to misty mountains, hundreds of natio-nal parks, deep canyons, flowing rivers, golden beaches and more within its boundaries. On top of that, the Premier State is the home of 6 World Heritage-listed areas; these include capital city Sydney’s world-famous Opera House, the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, the Greater Blue Mountains, Lord Howe Island Group, Willandra Lakes Region and Australian Convict Sites.

As such, New South Wales is an excellent place for outdoor recreational activities as well as wildlife-viewing, or simply for a scenic break away from city life amidst nature.

Getting around

New South Wales is an excellent place for a scenic road trip with the friends or family - with a huge range of driving itineraries available on the VisitNSW website, you’d be spoilt for choice. Otherwise, long-distance Greyhound buses or the NSW Train Link will get you anywhere you want to go in the Premier State.

What to see and do

The capital of New South Wales, Sydney - the most populous city in Australia - is a stunning place full of natural beauty and sights. Take a walk along the Sydney Harbor National Park, visit world-famous UNESCO World Heritage Site the Sydney Opera House, go out on a whale-watching boat expedition or just laze on the many white sandy beaches and while your vacation away.

Next must-see in New South Wales is Mungo National Park, an area with terrain so unique it looks more like something you’d find on Mars or the moon than on Earth. Part of UNESCO World Heritage Site the Willandra Lakes Region, the Mungo area is semi-arid and looks like a cross between a desert and mountainous area with its sand formations, dunes and dried-up lake beds. Besides its unique appearance, the area is also famous for harbouring pristine records of climate conditions during the Pleistocene Epoch (the last ice age that occurred more than a million years ago) in its sediments and soils, as well as ancient fossils of both humans and marsupials. Thought to have been inhabited by humans since 45,000 years ago, the Mungo National Park was also the place where the famous Mungo Man, oldest human remains in the world, were found amidst other amazing archaeological discoveries.
