New South Wales is the first and most populous State in Australia. Sydney is the State Capital and the oldest and largest city in the country. NSW has beautiful beaches, tallest mountains, forests and snow fields.
NSW native people the aboriginals lived in the area for around 60 000 years. White settlement occurred when in the 1700's Sydney Cove was set up as a Prison for English and Irish prisoners. After they had served their sentences they became free settlers. More free settlers poured in and with the help of gold rushes it became a major economic area. There still is gold lying around waiting to be found.
NSW’s biggest tourist attraction is its excellent weather, Sydney with its Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Botanic
Gardens, beaches and Taronga Zoo. NSW country has a famous wine region in the Hunter valley, alternate living at Byron Bay and a hippy commune at Nimbin to the north, Snowfields to the south and a fabulous party beach lifestyle.
