Most tourists come to New South Wales to visit Sydney and the coastal areas with white sandy beaches, but the state has a lot more to offer.

New South Wales is a southeastern state in Australia. With a population of around 6.7 million, it is the country's most populous state and home to Sydney, the oldest and largest city in Australia. New South Wales also enclose the Australian Capital Territory, the location of the Australian national capital of Canberra. Lord Howe Island, a subtropical island 550 km east of the mainland, is also part of the state. While much tourism is focused on Sydney and the coastal areas, the whole of New South Wales offers a multitude of experiences, with plenty of things to see and do.
