New South Wales & ACT

The festival state & the nation's capital

    New South Wales is a state of unspoiled coastlines and astonishing mountain lookouts. Tamworth is a must stop in January during the country music festival, where you can bar hop to awesome free gigs. The Australian Capital Territory is worth a visit to see the well planned Canberra, a city without peak hour!

    Kosciusko NP

    • Home to Australia’s highest mountain at 2230m.
    • Recommend the 22km Main Range Loop from Charlotte’s pass car park to the summit. Pack your lunch and make it a day trip!
    • Great camping on the snowy river at Diggings and Ngarigo we paid $34 for 2 day car entry, drop toilet facilities only.
    • Woollies supermarket at Jindabyne and mobile reception available throughout the NP.
    • It’s freezing at night so light a fire and buy some marshmallows!

    • Walks from Katoomba offer uncrowded views of the 3 sisters and a walk right to the middle of the Katoomba waterfall.
    • Govett’s leap was our favorite lookout.
    • Tour of the Lucas cave at Jenolan was magic, perfect activity for a rainy day.
