Discover Boutique Hotels in New South Wales, Australia

Flashy capital Sydney may take centre stage, but beyond the harbour city lie Byron Bay’s laid-back beaches, the Hunter Valley’s vineyards and Blue Mountains’ wow-worthy wildlife encounters.

Destinations in New South Wales

  • Sydneysiders have been in the know for years now, hightailing it to the Blue Mountains for indulgent weekends of wildlife spotting, antiques shopping and gallery-hopping.
  • Some jokingly refer to Byron Bay as the most northern suburb of Sydney – everything you can find in the big smoke is on your doorstep here, too.
  • Once a sleepy backwater, New South Wales’ Central Coast is a burgeoning hot getaway for weekending Sydneysiders, with top tip the Bouddi Peninsula, a boho cousin to the more familiar glam Northern Beaches across the water.
  • One of the global capitals of New World wine making, Australia’s green and glorious Hunter Valley is the ideal destination for antipodean explorers looking to combine the palatable with the picturesque.
  • Just two hours from the skyscrapers of Sydney, the turquoise sea, white-sand beaches and untouched forests of Jervis Bay (pronounced like 'Jarvis' Cocker) sparkle on the New South Wales South Coast.
  • With its soaring volcanic peaks, turquoise lagoon, unspoilt beaches and rare plants, birds and marine life, ruggedly beautiful eco-retreat Lord Howe Island should bring out your inner David Attenborough.
  • Endless pristine beaches, many of them close to deserted, and lush green countryside dotted with bucolic villages are the highlights of New South Wales’s South Coast.
  • Sassy Sydney is a supermodel of a city – and she knows it. The eye-popping setting, sprawled around one of the world’s best looking harbours, keeps tourists slack-jawed.
