Sydney’s known for its mix of city and nature: there’ll be wild roos grazing out of your hand, but at the same time, there’s a ton of urban speakeasies perfect for a Friday night out. Dip your feet into both worlds with Jetabout Holidays' packages to Sydney and New South Wales.  

Here are three packages that’ll bring you around Sydney and New South Wales - rustic farm stays, scenic cruises, and winter sports aren’t anywhere close to capturing what’s in store. What’s more, with every $1k spent, you’ll have $30 Grab credits to look forward to when you’re back home so you can cover your taxi fare from the airport!

 

1. 4D3N Iconic Sydney & surrounds - Vivid Sydney cruise and Blue Mountains trek

 

The vibrant lights of Vivid Sydney

From 25 March to 16 June 2018, everywhere you walk in Sydney’s CBD will be lit up with the colourful displays of Vivid Sydney, a festival filled with light shows and trails - from Luna Park’s ferris wheel to the facade of the Sydney Opera House. This itinerary comes with a Vivid Sydney Dinner Cruise for you to bask in an hour and a half of full-on light shows. A must-go, especially for night photographers.

But if you’re not travelling during this time period, don’t worry: you can opt for a 75-minute Sunset Cruise around the Sydney Harbour - vibrant sunset colours will wash over the entire cityscape.

Those who enjoy a gentle walk in the wilderness will mentally flag the Scenic World tour through the Blue Mountains. When riding the Scenic Railway, the steepest passenger railway in the world, you’ll be thrilled by the 52° incline. End the day with a leisurely 2.4km stroll along the boardwalk - there’s nothing but green, green flora and the occasional burst of mountain peaks.

After that, you’ll be awestruck with the sweeping views from the Scenic Skyway - it’s a 720m journey in a glass-bottomed cabin that’ll carry you past Katoomba Falls and the Three Sisters.

If you’re up for something more independent and free-spirited, this is the trip to get the best of both worlds: the freedom of driving plus a pre-planned itinerary - it’ll come with recommended stop-over points, along with the exact distance from point to point.

Road tripping’s the name of the game here, and driving all around NSW promises sights you won’t get with an ordinary tour coach. While you’re on the road, make a stop at the Kangaroo Valley Pie Shop to get a taste of the World’s Best Pie - choose from pies like the Traditional Aussie or Steak and Mushroom

Stay at different farms to see if the Australian bush life is the life for you. A farmstay at the Canyonleigh area will have you waking to the crowing of roosters and laughter of kookaburras before going about the usual farm duties, like feeding the animals or grooming the horses.

That’s not all: this road trip also comes with a Jervis Bay cruise. From November to May, you’ll be going for a scenic cruise along vivid blue waters, otherwise, hop on a whale-watching cruise from May to November to spot a migrating Humpback Whale or two.

3. 7D6N NSW winter getaway - Skiing, snowboarding & scenic chairlift rides

 

Skiing in Kosciuszko National Park

Can’t blame you for wanting to escape Singapore’s heat especially when it hits June. This is the perfect itinerary for you to get away since you'll be travelling to the Snowy Mountains, Australia’s only true alpine wilderness.

NSW dips to a cool 9 to 17°C in winter, but its mountains are even chillier - the warmest you’ll get is a brisk 6°C. The snow resorts are located in the breath-taking Kosciuszko National Park which is also home to Australia’s highest peak Mt Kosciuszko.

Put on your skiing gear for Thredbo, one of Australia’s biggest ski resorts - you’ll spend two nights there. Whatever your favoured winter sport is - skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing - there’s plenty of snow to try out everything.

For those who prefer a more relaxing way to experience the snow-covered landscape, the Scenic Chairlift offers breathtaking views of the peaks and valleys of Kosciuszko National Park.

Once you’re done, it’s back to Australia’s capital city: Canberra. You’ll have plenty of downtime here, so take a stroll around their major buildings like the National Museum of Australia or the Parliament House - entry is free to most.

End the trip with a drive back to Sydney, to stroll the CBD streets for endless shopping and eating - try Black Star Pastry’s mouthwatering Strawberry Watermelon Cake, rumoured to be the world's most Instagrammed dessert. Otherwise, browse for fresh produce from all around NSW at the The Carriageworks Farmers Market - it's home to over 70 stallholders.
