If you’re looking to get as much out of your Sydney experience as possible, why not get out of the city for a day and explore some nearby areas? Although Sydney is a big city with more than enough activities and attractions to keep any visitor or resident occupied, just a few short hours away you can find yourself in new Australian environments and enjoying new sites and experiences.
Here are some nearby attractions.
– The Hunter Valley. Less than two hours from Sydney, the Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest and most well-known wine region. With over 120 wineries scattering the valley’s rolling hills, it is a picturesque area that is the perfect day trip destination. There are many tour companies that offer day trips to the Hunter Valley from Sydney that include winery and wine tasting tours. Transport is included, so you can enjoy as many of the Hunter Valley’s award winning Semillons as you like!
– Central Coast. NSW’s Central Coast offers plenty of destinations for a day trip from Sydney. The length of coastline that stretches north from Sydney is home to stunning beaches with towns and communities that fringe these beautiful seaside spots. Popular Central Coast destinations include Killcare and Avoca Beaches and The Entrance. The scenic drive between Killcare and The Entrance offers spectacular views of this coastal region.
– The Blue Mountains. Only 90 minutes from Sydney, the Blue Mountains is one of Australia’s most accessible World Heritage listed wilderness areas. The Blue Mountains offer a diverse mix of rainforests, valleys, sandstone escarpments, canyons and lush bush land. With famous sites such as the Three Sisters and the Jenolan Caves, the area is also dotted with quaint towns, boutique shopping and cosy bed and breakfasts. It’s the perfect destination to get out of Sydney and into the fresh mountain air! If you don’t have your own transport, the Blue Mountains can be accessed via train from Sydney, and there are a number of tour operators who offer day trips to the area.
