Stay in NSW

Sydney and New South Wales (NSW) offer high quality accommodation options ranging from hostels to campgrounds to excellent hotels.

In Sydney, you can quickly settle in by basing yourself in one of the key Sydney travel areas. Bondi is one of the prime Sydney suburbs for hostels and other budget accommodation - check out the art deco Bondi Beachouse YHA overlooking Tamarama Beach, or the popular Bondi Backpackers, right on Bondi Beach. Base yourself in Kings Cross, renowned for its nightlife and just a 5 minute train ride to the heart of the Sydney city. The ever-popular suburb of Manly has some good value accommodation on offer; check out the Travelodge, just 10 minutes’ drive from Manly Beach. Or stay in the heart of the CBD for your pick of accommodation, from the upmarket backpacker digs at Bounce right by Central Station, to the lively Base Backpackers near Darling Harbour.

Regional NSW also has an excellent network of hotels and hostels for a comfortable stay. Whether you plan to visit the stunning Blue Mountains, go wine touring in the Hunter Valley, or take a road trip (or book a bus) to the ocean haven of Byron Bay, stopping in Port Stephens for a day or two, you’ll be spoiled for choice in terms of hostels, hotels and holiday parks. If you’re planning a road trip, there are plenty of campervan and car hire options to choose from; and Sydney and NSW offer many camping grounds and holiday parks from which to base yourself as you explore the state.
