Bucket list experiences in NSW

The number one most iconic bucket list experience in NSW that you need to tick off is the Sydney Bridge Climb. As the state’s capital city, Sydney is home to the most famous landmarks in the country, and Sydney Harbour Bridge is even more magnificent up close. Whether you’re a Sydney-sider or a visitor, no one is immune to the magic of climbing the bridge and taking in the panoramic harbour view. It’s truly an unbeatable experience.

NSW is also the perfect place to tick hot air ballooning off your bucket list. Soar over the famous Hunter Valley wine region or the iconic beach town of Byron Bay and enjoy an unforgettable flight.

To continue the flying theme, we can’t forget the magnificence of a helicopter flight. We have scenic helicopter rides that will take you over cities and coastal landscapes across NSW from Sydney Harbour to Wollongong waterfalls and pristine collections of beaches. You can even learn to fly a helicopter if that’s on your bucket list!

You should also consider visiting Port Stephens, if only to experience the Stockton Sand Dunes. Go sandboarding or take on the extreme dune terrain by quad bike with our range of Port Stephens sand dune tours. You won’t regret it.

Skydiving in NSW

Take the plunge and go skydiving at some of the most incredible jump spots in the world. The feeling of freefalling is a rush like nothing else you’ll ever experience, so prepare to feel more alive than ever. The jump spots around NSW all take you soaring over lush, picturesque landscapes with trusted experience providers. You can even skydive right over the beach in spots like Wollongong and Newcastle!

If you’re keen for the feeling of freefall without actually falling, why not give indoor skydiving a try? You can master the art of flying from inside a glass wind chamber and still get your heart racing. Plus, the intensity can be adjusted so that kids as young as three years old can give it a try, so it’s a great family-friendly activity.

What are the best beaches in NSW?

Australia’s east coast is famous for its pristine beaches, and NSW is home to a lot of them. In fact, Sydney is packed with incredible beaches along its coast, despite being the bustling city centre. Spots like Balmoral Beach, Palm Beach, Bronte Beach, Manly and countless more (including the world-famous Bondi) are all an easy distance from the Sydney CBD, so you can get the Australian beach experience while staying in town. 

South of Sydney there’s Jervis Bay, which is famous for its white sand and crystal water. This is a great spot to visit and enjoy activities like kayaking, whale watching and dolphin spotting.

Then there are great beach towns like Newcastle, Wollongong and Byron Bay, plus countless more beaches you can check out along the coast. Make the most out of the NSW beaches and check out our great range of water activities, including surfing, jet boating, parasailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving and heaps more.
