The countryside of NSW can be breath taking and includes farmstay opportunities and the chance to experience glorious rolling farmlands, Rivers and Valleys and some true outback experiences.
Distance is always a consideration when planning a trip to the country so allow plenty of time to stop and rest along the way. B & Bs seem to pop up wherever you go so don't be afraid to just pull over and stop for the night. That way you'll meet the locals and get to enjoy high standards of hospitality as well.
Country NSW also surrounds the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and the nation's capital Canberra, which is about a 2.5 hr drive from Sydney on a fast expressway.
The country towns of NSW offer a unique and "REAL" Australian experience for the international and domestic traveller alike.
Stay at a bed and Breakfast or enjoy a Farmstay and meet the people who give Australia its character.
The cities of the world are becoming more alike as time goes on, but the Australian countryside will always remain a unique experience.
