Enjoy the hot summer days with New South Wales trips


The summer holidays are over. However, there’s still room for taking a short break especially when you have nothing to do on those balmy nights during the peak summer days. Besides, an off-peak summer holiday has its perks such as low prices, less crowd, and easy booking to hotels and restaurants.

With temperature picking up across the state, Destination NSW offers a list of exciting places across New South Wales (NSW) that people will enjoy even during those long, hot summer days.

Port Stephens

Well, any list of NSW attractions will be incomplete without Port Stephens. Watching the migration of humpback whales is the most exciting thing to do, but you can also book a dolphin watch cruise, go for sandboarding at Anna Bay, or hike to the top of Mt Tomaree Head Lookout.

Besides, the holiday destination is famous for its lovely beaches, turquoise bays, and waterside eateries serving delectable food.

Golden beaches, shopping, surf breaks, and numerous restaurants with al fresco dining option – do you need any more excuse to pack your bag?

Drive the outside town at Ewingsdale and enjoy a day at The Farm Byron Bay by watching the cattle, chickens, vegetable and flower gardens, and finally dining at the on-site restaurant Three Blue Ducks. You can also visit the quaint Newrybar village and the Cape Byron Lighthouse.

South Coast

The South Coast gives you abundant options for soaking in the sun at many gorgeous beaches and satisfy your foodaholic soul at many fine restaurants. You can also explore the boutique and antique stores in the quaint town of Berry or spend a day in a convict-built cottage at the historic Coolangatta Estate.
