Here are five places you should visit.

Port Stephens

Two hours north of Sydney and you'll reach Port Stephens. It's one of the most famous holiday spots in New South Wales. In a location that's home to more than 150 bottle nose dolphins, why not take a dolphin spotting cruise? You can go whale watching and also enjoy some fabulous surf beaches. There's also the thrilling quad bike tours on sand dunes for adventure lovers.


The gorgeous seaside town of Forster is a sight you'll never forget. If you enjoy bushwalking, then Booti Booti National Park is the place for you to explore. It covers eight hectares of scenic bushland, sandy beaches and rainforest. At the northern end of the park is Cape Hawke Lookout with 360 degree views. It's only a three and a half hour drive north of Sydney.


This is the perfect destination for anyone who wants an enjoyable but simple holiday. Cessnock is surrounded by the Hunter Valley's popular wineries. You may decide to spend your day relaxing on a golf course, or take the kids to feed kangaroos at the Hunter Valley Zoo. All this is just less than two hours south west of Sydney.


Katoomba is one of the best places to park your campervan if you want to explore the Blue Mountains. You could keep yourself busy for days in this scenic town. Not far away you can admire the Three Sisters, or pay a visit to Wentworth Falls. An hour and a half west of Sydney and you'll also find cave tours and plenty of bushwalks.


Venture less than three hours west of Sydney and you'll find a gem of a holiday destination. The Mount Panorama Circuit plays host to the Bathurst 1000 race every October. But don't worry... if you're not a revhead then there's plenty to do for the rest of the year when the crowds aren't around. For example, there's the Abercrombie Caves, fishing tours, wineries and heritage tours through the city.
