Have any travel plans for your family this summer? Thinking of your next holiday destination? Why not go for an outdoor adventure with your family in New South Wales? I recently got interested in the stunning and precarious wilds of Australia and thought to share what I found with you. Here goes.
There’s the South Coast where families can enjoy a wide range of outdoor fun activities. Start with a close animal encounter on a whale and dolphin-watching cruise or snorkel with friendly seals on Montague Island.
Families can also go for coastal camping near the beach within the Booderee National Park, where everyone can enjoy great walks, swimming and surfing, as well as a school special holiday program just for kids.
If your family loves water adventures, try paddling the Murray Darling river in a canoe or kayak, and try out the spectacular fishing and camping locations in the region. Families can also tour the entire region on a traditional riverboat cruise. The twin towns of Moama and Echuca are home to the largest riverboat fleet in Australia – a sight to behold. Love the nature? Go to the Wonga Wetlands in Albury, a truly majestic place for bush walkers and bird watchers.
How about a little adrenaline boost for the family? Try the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk, one of Australia’s highest zip line tour. Positioned at a staggering 710 meter above sea level, the majestic panoramic views merge everything from the coastal towns, the rainforest canopy itself and even the Pacific Ocean.
Let’s not forget the North coast where families can hire a canoe to visit the Hunter Wetlands Center, which is near Newcastle. The place is a conservation sanctuary with over 200 wildlife species identified at the location.
In the Northern Rivers region, you can see the sights in the Yaraygir Coastal Walk in the wonderful Yaraygir National Park. That or your family can stroll around Wollumbin National Park and see Australia’s Green Cauldron, a thick rainforest landscape that was uniquely made from the remains of an ancient active volcano.
And if you want snow, try visiting the snowy mountains where your family can enjoy a great range of activities including skiing, horse riding, mountain biking, and fishing. There’s a thermal pool in the Yarrangobilly cave as well. Just bring a swimwear to bathe in the natural thermal pool that’s just perfect with a constant 27C.
Lastly, you should try the world’s steepest railway in Katoomba or see a birds-eye view of the Three Sisters and Jamison Valley as you glide above the forest canopy in a heart-thumping glass-floored skyway.
How about accommodation?
You can book online for hotels or better yet, bed and breakfast for an even better holiday vacation. And with all the things to do in NSW, it’s no wonder that house and land packages in Epping North as well as other communities in Australia are hot in the market right now. People are flocking to these locations mostly to be near great locations.
Online services like Airbnb and TripAdvisor will cue you in regarding the top places travelers talk about as well as accommodations in places nearest your chosen travel destinations.
