There couldn’t be a more perfect place to begin your vacation than Sydney. As an excellent place to start your vacation, the beaches on its southern coast are just what an avid surfer needs. Fishing, snorkelling, swimming, and boating are all favourite activities while vacationing in Sydney.
Scenic World Skyway
While you can hardly bear to leave the beautiful beaches in Sydney, the Blue Mountains are calling out to you. Located a short hour drive north deep in the heart of Blue Mountain, is one of the countries steepest railways. Scenic World will take your breath away with its glass-bottom floor and amazing views. From high on the railway, you will enjoy views of Katoomba Falls, the rainforest, Jamison Valley, and the cliff tops of the Three Sisters. Never for one moment will you regret your adventure ride at Scenic World.
Who said treehouses are just for children? An overnight treehouse accommodation in the Blue Mountains is one you’ll never forget. The Secret Treehouse offers views of the rainforest and Bowen’s Creek Gorge. The night sounds from the rainforest may or may not keep you awake at night as you get cozy in your queen size bed that’s nestled in the treetops. The Secret Treehouse’s kitchenette is perfect for your early morning cup of coffee, and the floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views.
The Outback Region in NSW
Continuing north on your journey you will find it hard to resist exploring the small mining towns of the outback. They will give you a taste of what the Australian Lands of the outback are really like. The region is sparsely populated with only around 12,000 people living there.
Visit the largest of the mining towns of Roxby Downs, population around 4,000, and stop for a bite to eat and a cold beer at their historic hotel. Then on to Silverton where many a filmmaker chose to make their movies. For an iconic overnight accommodation, travel on to White Cliff, known for opal mining. You can’t miss out on the chance for an overnight stay at their Underground Motel. With over 30 rooms available, there’s plenty of room for the entire family.
The Gulaga Tour
