Craving true adventure? From the glittering city to the verdant Central West and the rugged mountains to pristine isles, be wowed by awe-inspiring action-packed pursuits in New South Wales. Plan a day, a weekend or a week away, knowing that these adventurous activities will leave you feeling alive again.

Ascend an icon

Latch on and climb the ladder to experience a sky-high survey of one of globe’s finest natural harbours firsthand. Scale atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the company of an Aboriginal storyteller, who shares culturally significant tales along the journey on The Burrawa Indigenous Climb Experience.  Fittingly, the word ‘Burrawa’ means ‘above’ or ‘upwards’ in the Eora language of Sydney’s Traditional Custodians. At the summit, behold the incredible views across Sydney and learn about the historic and sacred sites in view, while you enjoy the rush of adrenaline from your climb.

Slip into the deep blue 

Plunge into the crystal-clear waters surrounding World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island on an life-affirming dive with Pro Dive Lord Howe Island. Home to the world’s southern-most coral reef and the world’s tallest sea stack – this underwater paradise is unlike anywhere else. The pristine ecosystem features a unique topography of trenches, caves and volcanic drop-offs, and an abundant marine life including over 90 species of coral and 500 species of fish. Float along the reef spotting turtles or for a real adrenaline rush, dive deeper to swim alongside the Galapagos whaler sharks.

Obtain a true mountain high 

Behold the magnificent views and changing light across Jamison Valley as daylight turns to dusk atop a Skyway cable car in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains. On the Beyond Skyway, Scenic World experience, feel the absolute exhilaration of being suspended 270 metres above the rainforest canopy. After Scenic World has closed for the day, the Beyond Skyway experience commences. Harnessed guests climb up through the hatch of the cable car and onto the rooftop, taking in the unrestricted panorama. Spy the majestic Katoomba Falls, the iconic Three Sisters, and marvel at Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoos flying below, toasting the vista as the sun sets.

Saddle up in the Snowies 

Sure, you can traverse the glorious Snowy Mountains by car, cycle, foot, or even ski or snowboard but to get the full Banjo Paterson Man From Snowy River experience, join a horse riding trek in the Snowy Mountains with Thredbo Valley Horse Rides. Saddle up, soak up the crisp mountain air and traverse through the Australian High Country on horseback. Along the way, spot fern filled gullies, steep wooded ridges, cool alpine streams and meadows. Afterwards, cosy up by the open fire and enjoy the warmth of  a celebratory schnapps at Wildbrumby Distillery, just down the road.

Dive with playful seals 

Frolic with the largest fur seal colony in NSW on a snorkel with seals adventure with Montague Island Adventures. Jump aboard a quick boat ride to the secluded bay, where you’ll be kitted up and ready to interact with these playful puppies of the sea. Located off the coast of Narooma on the South Coast, Montague Island has some of the best snorkelling and dive sites on the east coast. A haven for wildlife, you’re also likely to spot penguins, sea turtles, dolphins, and an array of different types of fish in this underwater playground.

Soar above the vineyards 

Head up and away as the sun rises, floating over the vineyards that stretch beyond Mudgee on a hot air balloon ride with Balloon Aloft, Mudgee. Drift above towering treetops, verdant rolling hills, the Cudgegong River, and the beautiful valley. Enjoy the photo opportunities capturing the changing morning light while aloft and then thrill at the landing, which, depending on conditions will be basket-up, or the basket coming to rest on its side. Then join in on the fun deflating the colourful balloon, before enjoying a day sampling the incredible artisanal produce of this award-winning Central West region.
