The massive state of New South Wales is home to several contrasting landscapes with snow covered mountains in the South, Outback deserts to the West, tropical rain forests in the North and serene coast to the East. It’s truly unique in its diversity and one I continue to explore setting of from my home in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Below are some of the highlights of my trips.
BLUE MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK
This popular national park situated 2 hours west of Sydney is a must visit tourist destination. The famous ‘Three Sisters’ sandstone rock pillars best viewed from Echo Point, Katoomba and have become iconic to the area. The park is full of other similar stunning formations as well as several series of cascading waterfalls, hectares of eucalyptus forest, and a massive cave and canyon network.

OPERA HOUSE & HARBOUR BRIDGE, SYDNEY
Iconic to Australia I first visited Sydney and its Harbour Bridge and Opera House as an adult. It never fails to impress me especially when seeing it light up at night whilst on a ferry from the Manly to CBD. All my images from this icon landmark can be found here: Opera House & Harbour Bridge
Situated South of Forster and East of Myall Lakes National Park accessible by an unsealed road, Seal Rocks and its famous lighthouse built in 1875 is a great holiday destination. For photography Seal Rocks has a beautiful long stretch of white sand with interesting rock formations at the lighthouse end. On the headland the old light house makes for a great view over the surrounding area, stunning at sunset.
MUNGO NATIONAL PARK
Mungo National Park is a typical outback Australian landscape, a landscape I don’t often get to visit. Of course the Walls of China are something unique but the rest is rugged, wild and vivid red. View all my images from this remote area here: Mungo National Park
