Sometimes seeing things from a different perspective is all you need to feel new. NSW offers many opportunities for a completely refreshing experience – from soaking in the views of scenic bush and ancient outback landscapes to luxurious retreats in the crisp, cool mountains, and swimming with turtles off a tiny island. Here’s where to recharge your batteries, indulge all your senses and rejuvenate your body and soul.  

Feel re-energised by exploring Sydney on the water 
For unmissable views of Sydney Harbour, nothing beats seeing it up close by boat. Step aboard a Sydney Luxury Cruise private yacht – the most indulgent way to explore Sydney’s vibrant foreshore. Make it an intimate date night to remember, celebrate with friends in style or even book an overnight stay on an 87-foot superyacht. As you cruise Sydney’s sparkling waters – the sun shining on your face – take in 360-degrees views of your surrounds: beautiful private bays and beaches juxtaposed with the vibrant energy and iconography of Luna Park and the city skyline.

Embrace ‘me time’ in the mountains 
A calming natural wonder dotted with restful and restorative retreats, the Blue Mountains is the perfect place to refresh your point of view. Solo or in good company, find a place just for you in the luxurious Spicers Sangoma Retreat surrounded by secluded bushland. Ease in with nature walks, yoga, meditation, art workshops and classes, or unwind with vintage Champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries as you indulge in a romantic after-dinner Bath Butler Experience. Become one with the dramatic landscape, and shift energy with exhilarating abseiling, canyoning or rockclimbing experiences. Nourishing you throughout your stay, the resort’s award-winning Amara Restaurant serves fresh, organic and seasonal produce sourced from the Hawkesbury region. 

Soar through the sky on the South Coast 
Glide on glistening waters and then you’re up, up and away! From your seat on a South Coast Seaplane watch the turquoise ocean landscape unfurl beneath you, as white-sand beaches appear on one side and imposing mountains loom on the other. Leave your cares in the air as you contemplate the enormity and splendour of this stunning vista. A range of flights depart daily from Moruya, Nowra and Tuross – soar above Montague Island, spotting seals, little penguins and seabirds who call the island home; or unpack a gourmet picnic on your own secret beach within Batemans Marine Park.

Discover a place where art and nature collide 
Overlooking the Shoalhaven River near Nowra, Bundanon sits within a wildly wonderful 1000-hectare bush landscape. But this isn’t just any natural wonderland, Bundanon has become a mecca for art lovers, featuring the former homestead and studio of famed Australian painter Arthur Boyd and a brand new art museum dramatically embedded on high stilts over the lush green valley.  Created by Kerstin Thompson Architects, the light-filled bridge museum and on-site sleeping quarters were designed in keeping with the Bundanon ethos of seamless harmony between the worlds of nature, wildlife, art, and First Nations people. Stay the night and submit to your spectacular surroundings for an experience of art, architecture and nature all in dialogue with each other. 

Live out tropical island dreams  
On World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island, you’ll be just one of 400 visitors allowed at any one time, as tourist numbers are limited to preserve the island’s unspoiled sub-tropical rainforests, beaches, and the world’s southernmost coral reef. Epitomising every ‘tropical island’ dream, you’ll feel far away from reality in a luxury suite at Arajilla, perched among the swaying Kentia palms and banyan trees behind Old Settlement Beach. Let the soothing rumble of the Pacific Ocean replace the aural overload of modern life, and watch turtles swim by during high tide. Surrender to serenity at the day spa, and dine on yellowfin tuna, kingfish and wahoo at the resort’s inventive restaurant, with fresh-as-can-be accompaniments from the flourishing kitchen garden.

Add sparkle to your happy hour 
Savour the slow and luxurious pace of Orange, taking the time to graze its famed food and wine. Sample the fine flavour of 10-year-old sparkling wine produced on a 12-hectare family estate at Printhie’s Sparkling Masterclass. Guests will embark on the journey of creating méthode traditionelle sparkling from start to finish, with a leisurely walking tour of the cellar door vineyard; its ancient limestone soils nurture these exceptional vines. With these insider secrets and a bottle (or two!) of bubbly to take home, and majestic Mount Canobolas as your backdrop, ‘drink’ in the revitalising experience over a delicious three-course meal at the winery's luxe new restaurant before heading home completely satisfied. 

Expand your horizons on ancient Country 
Unearth the awe-inspiring stories of Mungo National Park – a desert moonscape in the middle of the outback. Get a sense of the profound provenance of this otherworldly destination at the eco-friendly Mungo Lodge resort, which promises to rest your mind and body. With touches of outback luxury, cabins are inspired by the environment, and feature modern furnishings, local artworks and sophisticated amenities. Connect with stories and history of the local people with tours of the ancient and sacred Country of the Paakantji, Ngyiampaa and Mutthi Mutthi people. With artefacts dating back 50,000 years, hear the stories of Mungo National Park and the World Heritage-listed Willandra Lakes region that have been passed down from generation to generation.
