Cities are amazing places, bursting with diverse cultures and extraordinary experiences. But every now and then, it feels good to slow down, escape the urban jungle and get back to nature.
Fortunately, you won’t have to travel very far to find yourself surrounded by verdant greenery and soothing solitude as you explore one of many national parks that can be found on Sydney's fringes. Next time you need a break from the pace of city living, we suggest you take a trip to one of these lush and leafy retreats within 100km of the CBD.
From June 1, travel across NSW for any reason, including for day trips and holidays, is permitted. However, before travelling, it's recommended that you check the National Parks NSW website to make sure essential facilities are open to the public.
