Visit New South Wales - Toeristische informatie
Nieuw-Zuid-Wales kan op basis van het landschap in vier gebieden worden onderverdeeld:
** Een smalle kuststrook with climates warming from cool temperate on the far south coast to subtropical
near the Queensland border, including the regions of the Illawarra near Wollongong, the Shoalhaven near Nowra, and others.
** Het bergachtige gebied van the Great Dividing Range and the high country surrounding them. Whilst not
particularly steep, many peaks rise above 1,000 m, with the highest Mount Kosciuszko at 2,229 m. This includes the Southern Highlands and the New England regions.
* The semi-arid plains that fill a significant portion of the states area, this area is sparsely populated.
* The dry arid plains in the far north-west of the state, which is unsuitable for settlements of any noticeable size.
