Flight of Fancy podcast: Travel guide to New South Wales - best things to see and do

Sometimes, you don't know what you've got until you're forced to look at it. And Australian travellers haven't always looked at NSW. We've tended to head overseas. We've focused on Europe, on Asia, on the Americas.

But now we're stuck in Australia, and we have to turn our focus inwards. And what do we find? 

We find the Blue Mountains, these ruggedly beautiful ranges right on Sydney's doorstep. We find the Southern Highlands, all high-quality experiences amid old-world charm. We find Jervis Bay with its white-sand beaches, Pacific Palms with its flawlessly clear ocean, Lightning Ridge with its cast of characters, the Byron hinterland with its lush green beauty, and so much more.

In short, in NSW we find one of world's premier tourist destinations. And it's ours for the taking.

On this episode of Flight of Fancy, I talk to fellow travel writers Rob McFarland and Sue Williams to discover what makes NSW great, what makes it unique, and what there is to see and do and wonder at and explore in a place that might seem confined, but is actually more than three times the size of the UK.
