Luxury Holidays to Sydney & New South Wales: An Overview

With a stunning natural setting, Sydney is Australia's leading city, known worldwide for its spectacular harbour and the iconic Opera House. Beyond the city limits, New South Wales' fertile and well-populated (by Australian standards) coastal fringe is backed by the mountains of the Great Dividing Range which cover a varied and spectacular wilderness - there are lush sub-tropical rainforests, sheer angular gorges and snow-capped peaks.

Holidays to Sydney: The Detail

Original Travel consultants are regular visitors, and know all the best places to stay during a holiday to Sydney, as well as the finest of the many excellent restaurants and bars.

Sydney is an energising blend of old and new, with early colonial buildings standing in the shadow of glass and steel towers

Beyond Sydney greets the Blue Mountains' maze of escarpments, gorges and miles of undulating bush land. Today these Central Tablelands are rich pastoral lands best enjoyed on a private sheep or cattle station, which we can arrange. Beyond them lies the vast space of the Outback.

Elsewhere, holidays to the Central Coast of New South Wales are the way forward for wild beaches, magnificent coastal walks and temperate rainforest, while in the far north Byron Bay's surf beaches are a fashionable summer retreat.
