After setting everything up and gradually integrating into the campus, you will find that life is much more than studying. You must know that when you come to study in New South Wales, you will not only encounter a wealth of knowledge. The bustling city, the fun of adventure, and the nature that heals all kinds of EMO are waiting for you to have fun together. The following are the top 10 selected activities in NSW recommended by us.
It’s no exaggeration to say that national parks and reserves cover nearly a quarter of NSW, and you’ll be spoiled for choice when hiking here.
The Blue Mountains, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, has five recommended indexes. Because there are many eucalyptus trees growing on the mountain, the oil released by the leaves collides with the water vapor to form a blue mist, which makes it full of unique charm. You can feel the majestic momentum of “being at the top of the mountain and looking at the small mountains” when you climb to the viewing platform on the top of the cliff. If you want to get close to the sea, Coffs Coast, Barrington Coast, Jervis Bay, etc. are all great places to enjoy the sun, beautiful scenery and explore the coastline, maybe during the trip you will also meet kangaroo~
Take a partner for a short walk or a multi-day hike, and the pressure of learning will gradually be relieved by the healing of nature.
Visit the Hunter Valley
NSW has 12 different wine regions, the most famous of which is the beautiful Hunter Valley. The local area has a Mediterranean climate, and grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir are widely planted in the region. Who can resist these full and rich aromas of wine?
Going here, you can take a hot air balloon to enjoy the sunrise, learn chocolate making courses, and taste cheese. Visiting the wine cellar can also better understand how a winery operates, which is very helpful for students studying business.
Learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture
NSW has the largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in the country. If you study the humanities or arts, this provides a unique opportunity to learn about Australian history and modern Aboriginal cultural practices.
There are many galleries, museums, cultural centers and cooperatives that support Aboriginal art and culture, covering painting, sculpture, photography, weaving and more. For example, Broken Hill City Art Gallery, whose contemporary Aboriginal art collection includes works by Far West NSW artists Badger Bates and Edith Kennedy.
After completing a week of schoolwork and taking a leisurely vacation, you might as well try to gallop on the sea~ There are more than 2,000 kilometers of beaches here, including 11 surf protection areas.
Spots such as Bondi Beach and Byron Bay are popular for surfers, and even if you don’t have equipment, there are rental programs here. NSW hosts a range of festivals and tournaments throughout the year. Newcastle, for example, is home to the ‘Surfest’ and ‘nudie Australian Boardriders Battle’.
Appreciate the snow mountain
Let the southern hemisphere winter cool down the hot northern hemisphere! Every July and August is a good time for skiing in New South Wales.
Kosciuszko National Park in the Snowy Mountains region has long been transformed into a silver-clad wonderland, with skiers and snowboarders flocking to the ski resorts of Perisher, Thredbo and Charlotte Pass.
The beautiful resort of Thredbo is set against the mountainside, where you can go skiing, snowboarding and have a lot of fun in winter, with a variety of cottages, hotels and apartments as well as restaurants and bars. When you are tired from skiing, the cable car will take you to these places, take a rest~
Set sights on sydney
We have already been to the refreshing nature, now we are going to witness the prosperity of the city! How to enrich the life of studying abroad? Sydney will give you the answer.
The Sydney Opera House echoes the Harbor Bridge. You can walk on the coast of Bondi and Coogee, stroll through the historic rocky area, enjoy the Sydney fish market, and find a seat to check in. Alternatively, you can choose to take the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly and enjoy unrivaled harbor views from the comfort of your seat.
Hey! do you know? If you went to a different NSW beach every day, it would take almost 2.5 years to visit them all. Why should learning be confined indoors, knowledge may be hidden in places without ceilings. Spend time practicing swimming, stand-up paddling, snorkeling, strolling on the soft sandy beach or reading in the sun, skills and knowledge double get!
Plan a road trip
Freedom to drive means traveling at your own pace, stopping at points of interest whenever you want to learn more about NSW.
See how vast NSW is with a road trip. Passing through Grand Pacific Drive in Wollongong, this famous blue ocean road is the best choice for watching wildlife and coastal beauty.
From the coast to the hinterland, there are beaches, national parks and forests to explore. Camping, barbecue, and surfing along the way with friends, so the experience of studying abroad is unforgettable enough.
Get the adrenaline pumping
While NSW is great for relaxing on the beach and walking in nature, it’s also great for adrenaline junkies! The varied terrain offers unique opportunities for adventure and exploring the land. Consider skydiving, canyoning and caving, kayaking, horseback riding, scuba diving, snorkeling, and more to dive under the sea and discover the underwater world. Explore ancient rocks and underground streams on a tour of the Borenore Caves. If you’re lucky you might come across a platypus, so be careful not to disturb them.
From May to November each year, the NSW coast is renamed the “Humpback Whale Highway”, with more than 30,000 whales migrating each year. You are most likely to see humpbacks and southern right whales, but you will also see rarer ones. Species such as orcas and blue whales. Go to Watsons Bay, Jervis Bay, Byron Bay, etc., and you will encounter humpback and southern right whales active here. Book a whale watching cruise and get up close. When the whales jumped neatly, don’t be stingy with your applause, cheer them up!
