We’ve all heard of Bondi Beach and The Sydney Harbour Bridge but a lot of the time those places are too crowded, whereas destinations that are less crowded always call for a more relaxing and stress-free time. Below are three hidden gems in NSW you’ve got to visit.
Located along the Illawarra escarpment lies Mount Keira. Mount Keira offers some of the best views in NSW. It also offers an eye-opening experience of the cultural significance of the Wodi Wodi people. Mount Keria caters for both kids and adults with picnic spots, bush walks along the Ring Track, bird watching and breathtaking views. Mount Keira’s activities are great for kids to get them active in a fun way.
Located on the banks of Murrumbidgee River is Darling Point. Darlington Point is nothing short of a kids dream destination. For example, the Altina Wildlife Park offers an up close and personal experience with hundreds of animals including zebras, ostriches and much more. If zoos aren’t interesting to you, why not visit the stunning and peaceful town. The town gives off very cosy vibes. It’s also worth visiting the Murrumbidgee River in Darlington Point where you can swim, kayak, and fish.
Located north of Tablelands is Armidale. Unlike the other two places in NSW, Armidale is more suburban. But don’t let that fool you though, as Armidale allows all its visitors to explore stunning waterfalls and parks such as Wollombi Falls, Oxley Wild Rivers National Park and Ebor Falls. A big attraction in Armidale is the New England Regional Art Museum, don’t miss the chance to visit the museum as there’s lots of unique and breathtaking artwork to discover.
