An incredibly diverse array of new experiences land in NSW in August. Book yourself into Scandi-style luxury cabins, trek a long-awaited National Park hike, take a break at an elegant country house, hit a beachside pump track, and lots more.

ACCOMMODATION

Pod-like luxury

Temora just landed a new boutique accommodation at Three Ponds Estate. Book in for a stay and be treated to one of three modern, Scandi-style tiny home pods. Each pod boasts a queen-sized bed, well-stocked bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. Come for the incredible views of the countryside and stay for the attention to detail, including luxury toiletries, primo linen and the communal fire pit. 

EXPERIENCES

Beachside biking

Fans of mountain bike pumping can get their fill at the new pump track on Lake Macquarie's Redhead Beach. Cyclists, scooters, roller skaters and skateboarders of all abilities can enjoy the track, with its circuit of rolling berms, rollers and jumps. The $450,000 open-air track was built by world-leading mountain bike pump track company Velosolutions.

Burrima’s new boardwalk

A new boardwalk, nestled in the Macquarie Marshes (an internationally recognised and protected wetland), is now open to walkers. ‘Burrima’, an hour’s drive north of Nyngan, is a leisurely 1.8km boardwalk stroll through wetland and floodplain habitat, with an observation tower for a higher view. Visits are self-guided, must be booked in advance and cost $25 per car.

Rail line turned bike path

The Rosehill to Carlingford Railside Trail has opened to cyclists, runners and walkers alike. The new 5km pathway follows the northern section of the now-closed Clyde to Carlingford suburban rail line. Spot incredible views of the Carlingford end of the trail, overlooking the south, as you meander along the path.

Beers and boats

Booze meets cruise on Tweed Eco Cruises’ and Earth Beer Company’s new cruise experience, Ales and Sails Cruise. Jump aboard and be treated to live music as you travel the Tweed River towards the brewery. Upon arrival you’ll experience a guided tasting paddle and wander the brewery, before cruising back to the wharf with a shared grazing board to indulge in.

Paddle for free

Back in Trinity Point, the Marina now offers free stand-up paddleboard, kayak and ebike hire as well as an eFoil flight board experience (booking fees applied). While bookings are required for the free SUP, kayak and ebike hire, the opportunity to explore the lake and area free of charge shouldn't be passed up.

FOOD AND DRINK

Tuscany in the Riverina

The Griffith outpost of Calabria Family Wines has launched a series of new experiences. There’s a new Italian-inspired wine tasting room and new bar menu and museum renovations, including a sensory wall depicting the local wine region. There’s also selection of online bookable experiences, including 'Icons of the Riverina', an experience with Bill Calabria himself which includes a tasting of rare back vintages, paired with a local seasonal tasting menu.

Modern Middle Eastern

The Smoking Camel brings Middle Eastern fare to Byron Bay. Step into this neon-lit ‘oasis’ for a playful menu, similar to that of Light Years, its sister venue. Find the flavours of Lebanon, Turkey, and Israel sing across BBQ plates such as spiced beef, shawarma chicken and halloumi, and desserts with baklava gelato with pistachio sand, strawberry, rosewater and honey coco whip.

Five-star dining on the water

A taste of luxury has found a home on Lake Macquarie’s Trinity Point. 8 at Trinity offers a five-star-resort-style experience at its luxe 350-seat restaurant. The menu is far-reaching with dishes inspired by Japan, Italy and countries in-between. Its large terrace and sprawling lawn overlooks Lake Macquarie’s Trinity Point Marina.
