Villa in Gerroa
The Beach House
Waves lap at the shore and Gerroa Beach sweeps around just below this Hamptons-inspired retreat on a surf-happy stretch of the Australian coast. This house was made to entertain, with its generously proportioned rooms and a waterfront deck with space for the whole family. Walk to a coffee shop and let the caffeine fuel a surf or boogie-boarding session on the seasonally patrolled beach. Watch the tide go in and out from sun-splashed decks with sitting and dining areas, an outdoor kitchen with a built-in barbecue, and a hot tub that’s a wonderful spot to see the stars come out. Or grab one of the villa’s surfboards, boogie boards, stand-up paddleboard, and bikes to explore the bay and along the shoreline. Sunshine bounces off the villa’s crisp white walls and glows against the 2 sandstone fireplaces. There are 2 living areas, 2 dining areas, and a fully equipped kitchen with vintage-inspired fixtures and an inviting breakfast bar. Wicker seating, striped throws, and the views through walls of windows are constant reminders that you’re at the beach. Follow the steps down from the deck, walk across the grass, and you’re on Gerroa Beach, where you’ll find relatively gentle waves that are kind to new surfers, lifeguards on patrol during the summer, and an area by the river with calm water perfect for younger kids to play in. Walk or bike to nearby restaurants or get a takeout coffee to bring on a stroll along a coastal trail. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.

All about Australia

Enjoy Natural Wonders with an Australian Vacation

Endowed with countless natural wonders, unique wildlife, breathtaking beaches, cosmopolitan cities, and wide expanses of outback, Australia is sure to take your breath away. If you’re basing yourself in glamorous Sydney, you might be keen to explore the beautiful wilderness on your doorstep and escape for the day to one of New South Wales’ (NSW) most attractive pockets.

Day trips from Sydney

From the whitest shores in the world to ancient Aboriginal rock engravings, and exquisite wine tours in Australia's oldest vineyards, NSW begs for a road trip (or two). Ready for some unspoiled beauty?

Invigorate Your Senses at the Blue Mountains

With its crisp mountain air, glorious canyon hikes, and hidden waterfalls, Blue Mountain National Park is a natural oasis that’s only a 90-minute drive from Sydney. Once there, you’ll notice the azure-colored haze that gives these mountain ranges their name. The reason? The area is packed with eucalyptus trees, which emit a fragrant oil. When mixed with the water vapor and dust, the oil creates a mesmerizing blue aura.

Whether you hop on a glass-bottomed cable car to catch panoramic views of Katoomba Falls, ride the world’s steepest funicular down to the Jamieson Valley, or venture into the magical Jenolan Caves, this gorgeous site will satisfy your craving for adventure.

Savor Exquisite Vintages in Hunter Valley

Did you know that NSW is home to the oldest wine region in all of Australia? Only two hours from Sydney, Hunter Valley is a wine aficionados haven, producing rare vintages and the finest Sémillon and Shiraz you can get your hands on. Because the entire region is brimming with grape vines, you’ll be spoiled for options.

Discover Australia’s Green Countryside in Kangaroo Valley and Berry

Boasting some of the greenest pastures in NSW, the charmingly named Kangaroo Valley is surrounded by farmland, a balmy rainforest, and wild fauna. The region invites you to bask in the quiet serenity of its verdant surroundings, populated by wombats, wild platypus, and the expected roos. To explore, rent a bicycle and venture along the paths towards the valley’s main village. Craving a little something sweet? Many locals are proud to call the Kangaroo Valley Pie Shop the home of the best pies in Australia! If you’re eager to taste them for yourself, make sure to arrive early before the freshly made treats sell out for the day.

Combine your trip to the valley with a stop in Berry, a charming historic village in Australia’s southern highlands. The town will afford you the chance to enjoy nostalgic pleasantries such as horseback riding and market shopping, as well as opportunities to brush up on the arts with a visit to the Berry Museum. The village’s biggest claim to fame goes to its donut van, opened over 55 years ago. Visit this tasty institution for freshly fried indulgences rolled in cinnamon sugar.

Traipse Through Snowy-White Sands in Jervis Bay

While there’s no denying that Sydney has some pretty spectacular beaches, finding a strip of sand to yourself can be a challenge. If you’re willing to go that extra mile (trust us, it’s worth it) you might be lucky enough to sprawl out some secluded shores.

Follow the coast three hours south to discover Jervis Bay, home to Hyames Beach, the record holder of the world’s whitest shores. And with the idyllic Booderee National Park just behind, the area is paradise on earth for nature lovers. After you’ve waded in the turquoise waters and snorkeled above the marine life, head into the nearby town of Huskisson to experience its emerging foodie scene centered around local produce and fresh fish.

Dive Into History and Saltwater Pools at the Royal National Park

A mere hour from Sydney lies a national park so stunning that it was blessed by the Queen herself. With its Aboriginal rock engravings dating back to over 1000 years, the National Royal Park is the second oldest park of its kind in the world. Inland from its 20 gorgeous mile stretch of beaches you'll find subtropical forests, deep river valleys, and thrilling plateaus worthy of a hike. Make sure to bring your walking shoes — this natural wonder is best explored by foot!

If you visit anytime from May to November, you just might be lucky enough to spot a family of humpback whales. What’s more? The beaches here are deliciously secluded, so you can finally experience that “deserted shore” fantasy.

Discover Luxury with our Vacation Rentals in Australia

To experience the beauty of NSW while making the most of Australia’s flagship city, a Sydney vacation rental  is your best bet. From here, you’ll be close the all the excitement of the city and perfectly positioned for a beautiful day trip when the urge strikes.

Directly across the Harbour, our gorgeous rentals in Mosman offer the pleasant intimacy of a residential neighborhood and the convenience of being close to the big sights. Notable fine dining options are scattered around the area, and if you want to venture further, the Mosman ferry can transport you to the downtown district in a short amount of time.
