A home away from home – holiday rentals in New South Wales

From the desolate Outback to the cosmopolitan city of Sydney to the peaceful Blue Mountains, New South Wales is Australia’s most popular destination for foreign visitors. This vast region, in the south-east of the country, offers an enormous variety of tourist attractions and things to do.

The trip of a lifetime

Any visitor to New South Wales will find themselves spoiled for choice when it comes to unique things to see and do, and tourist attractions that are a genuine taste of Australia.

In Sydney – the nation’s capital and the biggest city in Australia – surfer culture rules the roost on the likes of Bondi Beach right in the heart of the city. In fact, New South Wales’ beaches and coastline are home to most of the state’s population in the many towns and villages that overlook miles of golden sand and bubbling surf.

The sensational climate means many cultural activities, including fairs and festivals, take place in the great outdoors while a little further from the beaches lie major cultural icons such as Sydney Opera House and a host of art galleries and museums.

Renting a holiday home by the beach can be a fabulous introduction to life Oz style. But there is so much more to New South Wales than sun, sea and sand.

Go off the beaten track

The state’s ecology is remarkably diverse – baking hot deserts and dense forests vie with rugged mountain peaks to attract most attention. New South Wales has many travel companies that can organise tours that will let visitors find a home from home in their holiday rental apartment or house before they get up close and personal with every aspect of outdoor life, from the Outback to the Blue Mountains.

Adrenaline-fuelled sports are a national obsession in Australia and more adventurous tourists will be thrilled at the variety of outdoor pursuits in which they can test their mettle. Go biking through the Blue Mountains and discover how the thousands of eucalyptus trees gave the area its name. Or try white water rafting or kayaking, rock climbing or caving. And if you’re the ultimate thrill-seeker, take up the challenge of skydiving or paragliding before chilling out in your luxury holiday home to watch a glorious sunset.

New South Wales is also a haven for those who like more sedate sporting activities – beautifully landscaped golf courses will tempt any golf lover and there are thousands of fishing shops that will provide you with the equipment and bait that lets you cast your reel or net from a pier, beach or boat. And if you’re lucky enough, you can toss your catch on the barbie in the garden or patio of your holiday villa.

Holiday destinations in New South Wales

Millions of visitors head for Sydney every year and many are now renting their own holiday apartment or house to give them flexibility and privacy. (Pet-friendly and family-friendly accommodation options abound, as well.) From your own Sydney base, you can set out to climb the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge or if that seems a little too adventurous, take one of the many harbour boat trips – the best way to see the city skyline at its best. Stop off at one of the many little coves and harbours that surround the city and enjoy a refreshing cold drink or a delicious lunch in the many smart restaurants the city boasts. Sydney’s choice of shopping is also famous, from malls to markets.

The ideal climate

New South Wales’ temperate climate – in comparison to the rest of the country – means it is the ideal tourist destination because there are rarely any extremes of hot and cold weather. In the winter months such as July and August, daytime temperatures can go as low as 9°C and as high as 16°C. The summer months of January and February see average daytime temperatures of 26°C. Do as the Australians do and slap on the sunscreen regularly.

The view from the balcony is spectacular encompassing the Harbour Bridge, Finger Wharf and the city skyline. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom very spacious. Kitchen was fine and functional. A few disappointments however. Stains on the dining room chairs. One dining room chair was unsafe and needs replacing. The rest of the furniture in the dining/lounge area looks OK but on closer inspection is either damaged, scuffed or worn and should be replaced to upgrade the apartment to where it really should be. Overall the location was unbeatable and we did enjoy our stay.
