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!
