Exploring Sydney and the surrounding National Parks

Sydney, Australias oldest and biggest city.

The gateway to exploring NSW. Its a thriving and vibrant harbourside city.

Filled with restaurants, cafes , pictureseque gardens and only a short distance to the Blue mountains.

The iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera house would be some of the most recognised places in the world.

Since 1788, when the Europeans first settled here, Circular Quay is now today’s hub for exploring the attractions Sydney has to offer.

Most landmarks are within walking distance to each other. The Royal Bontanic gardens make a worth while walk. Offering backdrop points of the harbour.

For an authentic shopping experience the Queen Victoria building offers beautiful boutiques.

Whether your just up for some window shopping or looking to treat yourself it’s worth a stroll through.

Sydney also offers some picturesque beaches, coastal walks and good surf.

Heading inland the World Hertitage National park known as the Blue Mountains makes a great day trip.

With plenty of lush scenary, magnificent views and day hikes. It’s a experience not to be missed.

The Hanging Rock in particular made a great morning hike. Only a 2 hour return it offers some spectacular views with less tourists.

Unlike Katoomba, which is the central point in the Blue Mountains, home to the Three Sisters it’s a great hub but very touristic.

We took our drive through the mountain ranges providing us with stunning views.

Situated on the great diving range the Kanagra Boyd National Park offers lots of hikes, breathtaking lookouts and spacious free camping at 1300 metres. We even woke up to snow one morning.

This national park is less touristic, so if beating the crowds is your thing it won’t disappoint.

Within a short distance is the town of Lithgow. Home to one of the largest canyons. Full of heritage this town provides fascinating history beautiful sights, including the Glow Worm tunnel which is situated in the Wollemi National Park.

With endless things to experience this area is perfect to explore
