Sydney Royal National Park

Travel through Sydney's beautiful heritage-listed Royal National Park.  Established in 1879, it’s the world's second-oldest national park. It features unique heritage attractions, along with fascinating plants, birds and animals.  It is located near Cronulla within an hour’s drive from both the Sydney CBD and Wollongong, the 16,000ha National Park is like Sydney's very own big and beautiful backyard!

Grand Pacific Drive

Just 1 hour south of Sydney, the Grand Pacific Drive encompasses some of NSW's most spectacular scenery and coastline and boats some of the State’s most beautiful beaches and rock pools.  Featured along this iconic road are many quaint seaside villages, but the jewel in the crown is the iconic 665 metre Sea Cliff Bridge, (pic courtesy of Destination Wollongong).  If you continued on the Grand Pacific Drive then makes its way into the bustling city of Wollongong and through to the beautiful coastal towns of Shellharbour and Kiama, passing rolling hills, wineries and dairy farms on your way to the Shoalhaven.

Bulli Scenic Lookout

Bulli Scenic Lookout or otherwise known as the Sublime Point Lookout has to be one of the finest viewpoints in New South Wales....and that is saying something!  It offers 180 degree views over the sea, the rainforest and the 17 beaches that span the coastline to Wollongong - say no more!  

Minnamurra Rainforest (entry included).

A rare tract of subtropical and temperate rainforest on the NSW South Coast, inland from Kiama.  Here, visitors can enjoy an easy 1.6 km boardwalk though the rainforest and experience the diversity of plant species and an array of wildlife incl. the elusive lyrebirds, water dragons, and many bird species that call Minnamurra home.  

Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk (entry included).

The Illawara Fly Tree Top Walk is the only one of its kind in NSW and is one of only a handful of elevated steel treetop walks in the World.  An immersive nature experience, the walkway features two gently swaying cantilevered arms and a central tower raised nearly 50 metres off the forest floor.  The stunning views take in everything from the rainforest floor into the canopy and out to the Pacific Ocean.  Its suitable for all ages and fitness abilities and is a one of a kind experience that captures the unique beauty of the region's flora and fauna.  

Fitzroy Falls

Fitzroy Falls is part of Morton National Park and is a favourite stopping off place for anyone visiting the area and the Southern Highlands.  A boardwalk leads alongside the creek and through restored native bushland to a lookout at the top of the falls which are about 100 metres high.  The views from here are spectacular as you can see down the cliff along the falls, and out towards Kangaroo Valley.

Hinterland Region

The scenery around the Hinterland Region was the inspiration behind creating this tour.  An area that has that has a quintessential countryside, farming, rural and rather wind-blown appearance.  This is an area that feels old, rugged, remote and is definitely a place the locals can feel proud of.  It is dotted with cute country towns that boast boutique shops, art galleries, Devonshire Teas, history and beautiful countryside.  Although beautiful all year round, Autumn is particularly special, as the many European trees display their radiant autumnal colours before shedding their leaves for the winter.  Come and enjoy this tranquil place and see a slice of the "real Australia" while doing and seeing something completely different!
