Everyone knows and loves Kosciuszko, Byron Bay and the
Blue Mountains, but we reckon it’s the lesser-known treasures
that make New South Wales so special. From the historical
landmarks that pepper the coast and countryside, to outback
camping beneath the starriest of skies, some of the state’s bestkept secrets are a hop and a skip from the tourist trail.
Warrumbungles
Gunnedah Tourist Caravan Park
Sure, hiking the Warrumbungles will afford you some
of the best views this side of Kosciuszko, but as the only
Dark Sky Park in the southern hemisphere – a place
protected for the clarity of its crystal-black, scintillating
skies – it’s hard to say whether this big old pile of rocks is
more mesmerising by day or night.
Park your trailer or pitch your tent among the peaceful,
sundrenched farmland of RV-friendly Gunnedah. Book
your cabin, powered site, or campsite and relax poolside
while keeping and eye out for the park’s resident koala.
A stroll along the Bindea Walking Trail will increase the
odds of seeing a koala in the wild.

Blayney Shire
Blayney & Villages Tourist Park
Take a drive down memory lane and discover the seven
story-book towns that make up Blayney Shire. Dating
back to the mid-1800s when agriculture, prospecting
and transport spread west of the Blue Mountains, these
pockets of living history are nestled in an idyllic tract
of countryside known for its food and wine and wellpreserved colonial buildings.
With a backdrop of paddocks and treed hills, Blayney &
Villages Tourist Park lies within a cluster of quaint gold
rush communities, and is just 30 minutes from all that
Bathurst and Orange have to offer. This quiet and friendly
park, has spotless amenities, a large variety of wellpriced accommodation and a huge dog off-leash area,
car and van washing facility in a spacious, green setting.

Tathra
Kianinny Bush Cottages
An escape to historic Tathra is the chance to snorkel
and swim in jewel-like waters, taste freshly shucked
regional oysters, and explore rugged national parks and
pristine waterways by bike, foot or paddle. The town’s
rich history is best experienced with a visit to the Tathra
Maritime Museum, which is housed within the oldest
deep-water timber wharf in NSW.
Unwind in the unspoilt beauty of the Sapphire Coast
with your own self-contained cottage nestled in the
bush. With bikes trails and bushwalks on your doorstep
and the beach just 3km away, Kianniny blends
tranquility and adventure for the ultimate naturebased stay.
