Winter & Spring Getaways

A memorable escape from the everyday is closer than you think! Here are three short drives from Sydney that could brighten up your next weekend.


Blue Mountains

2h West of Sydney

For some of Australia’s most stunning views, you can’t go wrong with a trip to the Blue Mountains. It’s a world heritage area with famous attractions such as the 100-metre Wentworth Falls, the iconic Three Sisters, and the Jenolan Caves, some of the world’s oldest caves. A wide range of bushwalking tracks accommodate all levels and experiences. If you’re not so keen on walking, there are plenty of other ways to explore, including horseriding, quad bikes or cable cars.



1.5h south of Sydney

Bowral is the perfect place to hide indoors from gloomy weather. Antique stores, old fashioned bookstores and quirky boutiques promise a unique place to shop. You can spend hours exploring the interiors of the town’s historic buildings, or admiring paintings in the Bowral Art Gallery. Budding artists can even get in on the action by taking the art workshops the gallery offers. And cricket fans can’t miss the Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame.



3.5h northwest of Sydney

Here is a secret country escape waiting to surprise you. Though Mudgee may be a country town, it’s anything but sleepy. It’s the third largest grape region in New South Wales and also celebrated for its gourmet food. Markets and festivals are held here all year round. The natural beauty of the area can also be explored at Dunn’s Swamp, the Great Dripping Wall and the Hands on the Rocks. Those looking for something active can enjoy a spot of cycling, canoeing, or even skydiving.
