Home to the world famous Bondi BeachDiscover world famous cities and beaches, and natural paradises in equal measure
New South Wales luxury holidays will take you to the popular Australian state that includes the iconic city of Sydney, with its famous harbour and Bondi Beach. Nature-lovers will be thrilled by the magnificent scenes at the Great Dividing Range and the splendour of the Blue Mountains.
Sydney is definitely a city you must visit at some point in your life. This vibrant urban hub is home to some breathtaking beaches, chic restaurants and some of Australia’s most well-known landmarks, including Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
One of the best places to start your exploration in Sydney is at Potts Point. This gives you convenient access to the beaches and makes a trip into the city quick and easy. You’ll find some amazing bars where you can enjoy a refreshing drink and take in the sights of the harbour. Try Larmont by Lancemore, which provides magnificent views.
Wine-lovers can take the two-hour trip just outside of Sydney to Hunter Valley. This must-see destination is the longest standing wine region in the country and is home to a staggering 150 wineries. The region is famous for its Semillon and also offers excellent shiraz and chardonnay. As well as the chance to sample the best local wines, there are some beautiful scenic views to enjoy too.
Heading to the upper most point of New South Wales, you’ll find Byron Bay. This little town is a popular haunt for tourists due to its magnificent beaches, fantastic surfing, vibrant rainforest, and its free and easy character. Here, you can take part in meditation and yoga classes to completely unwind and enjoy fresh, delicious food. If you’re travelling at Easter, the Byron Bay Bluesfest is a must, where you can enjoy a range of roots and blues music as you soak up the New South Wales sun.
Australia is known for its soap operas, and fans of these shows won’t want to miss the chance to take a trip to Palm Beach, where Home and Away is filmed. You may get lucky and find yourself there on a film day to enjoy a spot of star gazing, or if not, simply take in the gorgeous views on this great beach and capture some holiday snaps outside the Summer Bay Surf Club or Alf’s bait shop. Take a detour to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse for more stunning photo opportunities of the beautiful beaches below.
Down in the south, Mollymook is a pretty town by the coast that features a sumptuous stretch of beach ideal for novice surfers and body-boarders. You can also enjoy a dip in Bogey Hole, a natural rock pool. For some celebrity chef dining, visit Rick Stein at Bannisters and enjoy award-winning seafood dishes.

Occupying a tiny part of a huge nature reserve, the resort sits in a valley within the Great Dividing Range between the Gardens of Stone and Wollemi National Parks. For an unforgettable holiday in a World Heritage listed area, Wolgan Valley is the place to go.
Shangri-La Hotel, SydneyFrom...The Shangri-La Sydney is not only positioned in one of the world’s most photogenic and charming cities - it is also located right by iconic Sydney Harbour. Watch sailing boats pass by, marvel at the splendour of Sydney Opera House or the sheer size of the Harbour Bridge.
Pretty Beach HouseFrom...Around 70 miles north of Sydney lies Pretty Beach House, in Bouddi National Park, New South Wales. The hotel is located high above Pretty Beach, affording guests spectacular views over the Bouddi Peninsula.
Park Hyatt, SydneyFrom...Situated in the Rocks area of Sydney, the Park Hyatt could not be better placed. Arguably, there is barely a location on earth with a view to beat it. Overlooking Sydney Harbour, and the landmark Sydney Opera House, this hotel really does make a visit to Australia’s magical seaside city even more special.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
