New South Wales is guaranteed to tick your holiday boxes. Find out where to stay...
As well as the luxury hotels and boutique hotels of Sydney, you'll find plenty of hotels in the cities of Newcastle, Wollongong, and Coffs Harbour and the subtropical town of Lismore, while plenty of beach-side properties dot the picturesque coastline. The concentration of hotels also becomes denser just over the northern border, in Queensland's Gold Coast.
Greater Newcastle includes the cities of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Maitland. Sitting two hours north of Sydney and within the famed Hunter Valley, hotels in these cities are well placed for explorations of the vineyards and tastes of the reds, whites and rosés that are produced here. Outdoor adventurers are also kept very happy in these cities, as the lakes, beaches and natural parks dish up plenty of opportunities to get active amid the sensational vistas.
Wollongong is the third largest city in New South Wales, after Sydney and Newcastle. Stay in hotels in Wollongong, which is just an hour south of Sydney, to enjoy yet another welcoming city on the sea, where the great outdoors keeps families happy.
