Tourist ship docked in Sydney Harbour

New South Wales is the crown jewel in one of the world’s premier tourist destinations. Where else in the world can you visit stunning city landmarks such as the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, then drive for only a few hours to take in breathtaking natural beauty and enjoy perfectly fresh produce?

More people visit NSW than any other state or territory in Australia, for holidays, business and events, and to visit family and friends. According to Tourism Research Australia, just over 50% of the 8.6 million international visitors to Australia in 2016–17 spent time in NSW.
