NSW Unmapped Road Trip

So, what happens when you combine an Aussie, an American, a Kiwi, 2 Canucks, and a Brit, you put them in a bus and send them on a 30 day road trip through New South Wales with no itinerary?  

We brought together six world travellers and put them on a month-long road trip to capture the best that NSW, Australia has to offer. We pulled travellers from all over the world to provide a rich perspective on the unique experiences to be had in NSW.

Follow the adventures of Kelly, Seattle, John, Kyle, and Josh as they meet new people and discover the best of Sydney and New South Wales.
