Sydney and New South Wales from Home

Destination NSW have launched virtual trips around the region to showcase some of their highlights on and off the coast.

Situated in the south east of Australia, New South Wales (NSW) boasts national parks, coastal cities and plenty of outdoor adventure. The rainforests, rugged Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley region, opal mines, outback towns and vineyards can all be explored inland. On the coast is Sydney, the region’s capital and home to the famous Bondi beach with plenty of other beaches, bays, surf and water sports.

Stephen Mahoney, Acting CEO, Destination NSW said: “Travel might be postponed, but dreaming about travelling is definitely encouraged via our Zoom-ready assets.”

Spectacular scenery, animals and the sun’s rising or setting were the three key themes used to compile a collection of images and videos for visitors to view and download.

Destinations include Sydney Harbour shown by time-lapse, aerial images of Broken Hill and Stockton and the Lord Howe Island, popular for its wildlife and sporting activities. Some of the experiences to be seen are the feeding of the kangaroos at Coffs Harbour, a garden walk, stargazing from Warrumbungles which is the first dark sky park in the southern hemisphere or meeting the sea life that lives along the coastline between Tweed Heads and Narooma.

“Our stunning NSW Zoom backgrounds have been created to keep NSW’s unique experiences and destinations at the top of future holiday makers minds,” said Stephen. “As people dream about travelling while staying connected and entertained through Zoom during this time.”

Zoom backgrounds are compiled with images and videos of meerkats, wombats, kangaroos and seals. Panoramic and spectacular scenic views of the Blue Mountains, Warrumbungle, Mungo, and Kosciuszko national parks with their walks, caves, bays and sand dunes are also available.
