Hiking in New South Wales
New South Wales is home to some of Australia’s best forest hiking trails.
Most of the state is covered is vegetation with massive variations to the climate, terrain and environment, providing a huge amount of diversity. Hike through thick and dry eucalyptus hills that go all of the way from the mountains to the ocean or explore tropical rainforests on the edge of the northern NSW coast.
The coast might be the biggest drawing card for NSW, but that’s just one part of the very large region. Mountain ranges are found throughout the state, including the Snowy Mountains and Australian Alps in the south, the Great Dividing Range running from south to north and the Blue Mountains, just to the west of Sydney.
From slow trails through dense, humid forests to coastal walks in the city and remote mountain tracks, NSW has a bit of everything and a lifetime could be spent exploring the place by foot, and you don’t even have to go far from the city if at all to find a decent hiking trail in New South Wales!
Here are the hiking trails in NSW that have been mentioned in the WAY&FARER blog.
