New South Wales is an Outdorian’s dream. It’s home to some truly mind-blowing natural attractions; top-notch ski slopes in Kosciuszko National Park, white-sand beaches along the NSW north coast, and ancient caves in the Greater Blue Mountains to name just a few.
Getting out there with a van, tent or swag is one of the most rewarding ways to experience all that NSW has to offer. That’s why we’ve pulled together Australia’s best campgrounds, caravan parks and campervan rentals on CamperMate.

Have you ever seen canyoners in NSW’s Blue Mountains? You know, those wetsuit-clad crazies who scurry off the trail to follow in the footsteps of a frenzied creek? They’ll slide, leap, scramble, swim, boulder and abseil to overcome obstacles, blending rock climbing and navigational skills to negotiate slippery slots and flooded ravines.
My partner James and I arrived at Scotts Head in the early hours of a frosty Sunday morning. It was just as the sun was peeking over the horizon. The first thing we noticed were the aqua greens glowing from the misty water. Watching the surfers cruise along the right-hand surf break, we were even able to see the curves in the sand beneath their boards. It is one of the cleanest places we have seen yet.
If the crumbling granite tors and disfigured snow gums that punctuate Australia’s rooftop are anything to go by, the weather in Kosciuszko National Park should not be underestimated. This is the thought that runs through our minds as we stuff our packs in preparation for hiking the Main Range Track over the Easter long weekend. Sub-zero sleeping bags, topographical maps, emergency Snickers, and permanently crossed fingers go some way to putting our minds at ease – the promise of outta-this-world scenery and remote high country camping goes the rest.
How good is it to just get away from it all and get that weekly dose of mother nature? Those fortunate enough to live in New South Wales (or be just wandering through), have a whole heap of stunning short hikes available to them.
The first visit my partner James and I took to Seal Rocks felt like we had left Australia and stepped into an island oasis. The day was sunny and the headlands in the distance reminded us of the islands of Hawaii. It was the perfect weekend getaway. Since that day, we have returned numerous times and each time is always just as good as the last.
