New South Wales Locations

Chances are that when many people think of New South Wales, the first thing that springs to mind is Sydney. And that's fair enough – it is after all one of the most beautiful spots on earth and the Park Hyatt Sydney is one of the best places to stay in Australia.

However, New South Wales is far from being all about Sydney, from the endless splendour of the outback to the magical waters of Lord Howe Island, the lush climes of the Blue Mountains, to the vineyards of the Hunter Valley and the beautiful beaches of the Byron Bay and Pacific Coast, the state of New South Wales hosts a wealth of diverse regional areas.

Winter is from June to August and coastal temperatures range from 15-20°C maximum depending on your regional location. The remainder of the state will typically have winter days between 3°C minimum and 15°C maximum, although it can drop to 0°C in the outback. The exception is the Snowy Mountains area with temperatures falling to -6°C.

Summer is from December to February. Temperatures usually range from 25°C - 28°C maximum on the entire coastal strip. Away from the coastal influence, the balance of the state will typically have summer days of approximately 30°C although maximum temperatures can reach 35+°C.

Blue Mountains 
Experience fresh mountain air as you rise above Sydney and enter the spectacular Blue Mountains region. The Blue Mountains are perfect for exploring the best that nature has to offer. [View]

Byron Bay and Pacific Coast 
From the lush hinterland to the sparkling beaches on the coast, the region is full of natural wonders. Byron Bay is a melting pot of surf culture, alternative philosophies and hedonistic indulgence. [View]

Hunter Valley 
The Hunter Valley is one of Australia's premier wine growing districts and also a varied and interesting tourist region in New South Wales. [View]

Lord Howe 
Lord Howe Island is music for the soul, a place to revitalise and de-stress. At any one time, you’re one of only 400 visitors on Lord Howe, an island of unspoilt beauty where life is relaxed and unhurried. [View]

South Coast 
The unspoilt natural beauty of the southern coastline of New South Wales unfolds in a series of bays and coves. Little townships, many with interesting histories, are known for their fine food and wines, and great country markets. [View]

The city of Sydney offers world-class dining, shopping, museums, culture, breaches, national parks and the world's most stunning harbour. [View]
