New South Wales is a large area within Australia that includes the major city Sidney. With the amount of people in the area, it’s no wonder there’s a lot of things to do there.
Whether you’re here for your honeymoon, a family vacation, or are just backpacking, you’ll find what you’re looking for in New South Wales. Here are some popular activities that’ll allow you to get the most out of the area.
Taronga Western Plains Zoo
This safari themed zoo is fun and engaging for the whole family. Unlike other zoos, you’ll actually be able to feed most of the wildlife here. Instead of just giving some pellets to a Donkey, you’ll be able to have a whole carrot sucked out of your hand by a nice, friendly giraffe. He won’t be standing next to you. He’s tall enough to poke his head over the see-through fence.
This zoo sort of doubles as a park. It’s bike friendly. You can get your exercise while watching exotic and native animals. This zoo happens to be home to hundreds of rare and endangered animals. You won’t be able to see them all in one visit!
Australian Reptile Park
This awarding winning park allows guests to have a more hands-on experience then they would get at a zoo. There are loads of opportunities to safely interact with the animals by petting, feeding and touching them. You’ll also be able to buy a ticket for a wildlife show at this destination. During the winter, they have a wonderful alligator feeding show.
Tropical Fruit World
This is an interesting destination for any foodie.
It’s a park with over five hundred varieties of tropical fruit trees from around the world.
Visitors are free to taste, touch and pick up any fruit they see. The gift shop offers special jams and dishes that feature the exotic fruits growing in the park.
Enjoy Summer Activities
There are thousands of kilometers of beaches in New South Wales.
No matter what activity you’re looking to do, you’re sure to find the perfect coast for it. Surfing is popular to do in Wollongong, which is just due south of Sidney. This coastal town is also considered to be one of the best areas in Australia for whale watching. Their are even guided, whale-watching tours.
Besides the surf and all the ocean-life to observe, you’ll be mesmerized by the beautiful views this area has to offer. The waters are deep blue and inviting. The beaches are always clear of garbage and sparely populated.
Wollongong just couldn’t be better for a summer vacation. You won’t want to leave once you’ve gotten situated on the beach.
