Kick starting the business events industry one unforgettable experience at a time.
Sydney and regional NSW is one of Australia’s leading tourism and events destination, attracting more international business, holiday and education visitors than any other state in Australia. Its physical beauty, vibrant creative energy, and iconic attractions such as the Sydney Opera House, the Blue Mountains and the north coast have secured its status as Australia’s global city.
With many regions on offer, New South Wales is the perfect destination of choice for your next business event.
Sydney is stunning. There’s no doubt that sparkling Sydney Harbour makes it an attractive destination, but there’s lots more going for it than just natural beauty. Take in the smooth sandstone of colonial buildings, enjoy entertaining theatre, visit world-class museums and venues and indulge in gourmet delights.
The small picturesque towns of the region are surrounded by the sandstone cliffs and deep valleys thick with rainforest that are part of the vast Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, just 90 minutes’ drive from Sydney.
Lord Howe Island
This tiny World Heritage-listed paradise located two hours’ flight from Sydney or Brisbane is surrounded by the world’s most southerly coral reef. Explore the island by bike or on foot, snorkel, canoe and bushwalk.
The incredible natural wonders of this region on land and in the sea offer plenty of enjoyable experiences from bushwalking and snorkelling to dolphin-watching, surfing, bird-watching and canoeing.
The landscape of this grand region is where red ochre earth merges with clear blue skies. A cultural highlight is the Willandra Lakes World-Heritage Area, famous for the 60,000-year-old burial sites at Lake Mungo as well as its lunar landscape.
Whatever the season, the Snowy Mountains is spectacular. Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest peak, is located in here, while Kosciuszko National Park is the largest national park in Australia. Go skiing in winter and hiking in summer.
Stretching from Stanwell Park to Eden, the South Coast is a region of unspoilt natural beauty. It has more than 30 national parks, crystal-clear bays and lakes, uncrowded beaches, beautiful rivers and the whitest sand in the world at Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay.
