  2. Blue Mountains
    2.5 hr | 130 km (each way)
    An endless choice of bush walks, waterfalls, sandstone cliffs that change colour in the shifting light, cockatoos and other wildlife, the smell of eucalypts, breath-taking views, towering tree ferns, blazing autumn colours, and charming mountain villages, the Blue Mountains can be visited in one day, but it begs to be more thoroughly explored.

  9. Newcastle
    2.5 hr | 160 km (each way)

  10. Port Stephens 
    3 hr | 206 km (each way)
    Port Stephens is the dolphin capital of Australia and here you'll find near-deserted beaches, turquoise waters, national parks, and an extensive sand dune system.
