The Harbour City!

Right on the doorstep of the city, 30km of coastline
with tantalising aqua water and a string of fantastic
beaches and rock pools awaits!

within Sydney’s city limits!

This area has a magic of its own – locked
between sea and escarpment, its scenery is
striking and unforgettable.

sand in the world, and set against the area’s
impossibly clear water they certainly dazzle!

The cultivated charm of the quaint townships, rolling
farmland and vineyards for which this area is known
gives way to bush of dramatic and rugged beauty,
which abounds with memorable places to swim.

While not large in number, the swimming spots that
do exist here are big in size!

9 Greater Blue Mountains South

Named for the characteristic blue haze that shrouds them,
the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains are as vast as they
are beautiful.

This is the region for the truly adventurous – for those that are
compelled to explore around the next bend in the river, and the next…
