You don’t need to escape the city to savour some wellness - at least, not if the city in question is Sydney. NSW’s buzzing capital is a great place to get your groove back. From its spectacular harbour pools to magnificent outdoor areas like Centennial Park, there is plenty of nature therapy on offer in the middle of Sydney. Even more opportunities for outdoor adventure await on the fringe of the city, whether you head to the peaks and valleys of the Blue Mountains or the bays and beaches of the Royal National Park.
And we haven’t even considered the rest of the state yet. Head north and you will find plenty of places to unwind, from ancient rainforests to picturesque towns with thriving artistic scenes, as well as some of the state’s best restaurants.
Head south, and you’re exploring an endless series of lakes, lagoons and beaches, nestled amid verdant bushland that offers superb bushwalking. Rich farmlands produce some of the best food in the state, and the Sapphire Coast is famously home to the state’s best oysters.
