Sydney may be an amazing town to visit in its own right, but some of the regions dotted around the outskirts of the city are every bit as magical. From fine wine tastings to mountain top hikes, stunning views to serene beaches, there is always an amazing day trip waiting just outside the Emerald City!

Let’s take a look at some of them below…

The incredible Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains are some of Australia’s most awe-inspiring natural wonderlands, with towering views, cascading waterfalls, charming picnic spots, thrill seeking adventure parks and rugged hikes all on the amazing agenda. Any day trip to the Blue Mountains is full of adventure and wonder, with the likes of the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls, Lyrebird Dell and Scenic World all creating the perfect itinerary for eager travellers.

Gaze upon the wondrous Three Sisters from the majestic Echo Point, climb aboard the adrenaline-pumping Scenic Skyway at Scenic World and watch in wonder as endless water cascades over the marvellous Katoomba Falls – it’s truly the ultimate day trip from Sydney!

Fine wine in the Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s most beloved wine regions, with hundreds of first class wineries dotting its bucolic, rustic hills. A day trip to the Hunter Valley is typically complete with fine wine and sumptuous cuisine, though that’s not all the region has to offer.

The Hunter Valley is also the perfect place for touring, with visitors traversing the gorgeous, rolling hillsides by cycle and horseback.

Relax at some truly world class beaches

Whilst the beaches of Sydney themselves are on any visitor’s to-see and enjoy list, the beach towns outside of Sydney are also home to gorgeous, sandy stretches and turquoise waters.

For the best beach trips from Sydney, be sure to head to the likes of Mollymook, Avoca, Palm Beach and Pearl Beach – each has its own special charm and encapsulates what is so special about the beach towns outside of Sydney!

It’s a day tripper’s delight!

Sydney is just as great to take a day trip from as it is to enjoy the city proper. With beautiful beaches, stunning mountain ranges and world class produce at the city’s doorstep, you can be sure that a day trip from Sydney is well worth the adventure!
