Although summer has now passed it's safe to say we're all still gearing to head outdoors for some quality time in the sun. Instead of sticking to your favourite hike or local park in the cooler Sydney days ahead, why not venture a little further afield into the countryside?
Spanning ocean and desert, NSW boasts an abundance of local food, live music and breath-taking nature to take in. From the lush Hunter Valley vineyards to the snow-capped mountains of Perisher, there are festivals and events for every taste. And it's all happening in autumn, the season that isn't as hot or busy as summer. Do you need any more convincing?
Without some planning, however, your next three months are going to look a little dull. To help you out, we've teamed up with Destination NSW to put together a handy list of top things to do with your entourage just in time for the trees to shed their gold and red leaves.
Know what you want? Navigate to one of the sections below to find an event. And if you want a bit more direction, have a play with our Destination Generator, where we'll direct you towards the best events for you, depending on how far you want to go, who you're travelling with and what you want to do. Follow our lead, and head beyond Sydney this autumn to take in the whole of NSW.
