NSW Adventure Travel, NSW Outdoor Activities, Hiking, Bushwalking, Fishing, Boating
If the instinct for adventure travel runs in your blood, New South Wales is your natural habitat. It’s got the lot - diversity of terrains and weather that will give you plenty of choice of adventure activities as well as easy access to them. Whether your idea of outdoor fun involves skiing in the Snowy Mountains, boating, hiking and bushwalking in the Blue Mountains or Barrington Tops or driving on a scenic outback tour, NSW can make it happen.
Is fishing your addiction? New South Wales’ oceans, lakes, rivers and estuaries offer a lifetime’s worth of challenges. Boating? Take a relaxing houseboat holiday on the placid waters of Myall Lakes or the Murray River or go wild and experience thrills at the other extreme with a ride on a raging, white water river.
NSW is also a great place to try a different adventure. There are plenty of NSW tour operators to get you deep into the bush and outback, as well as knowledgeable locals who can take you to a new skill level as a scuba diver, a rock climber or a white-water kayaker.
