Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is probably Australia’s most recognisable city, and is often mistaken for the capital of Australia. However, Australia’s true capital is Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory.
New South Wales has much to offer, not just the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. With surf beaches, national parks, rivers and lakes, snow and skiing in winter, there is something for everyone. Regional New South Wales,west of the Coast, is dominated by agriculture and farming communities, including cattle, sheep, wineries, and crops such as cotton and wheat. Here you will find country towns and true old fashioned country values. Mining is also prominent in outback New South Wales. Parliament House
