This week, Destination NSW is partnering with Sunrise Weather for a week-long trip across the state.
The week-long integration will showcase regions across NSW and uncover the people, places and experiences that will make travellers “Feel New” this year.
Presenter Sam Mac will explore five regions in five days starting with the legendary outback city of Broken Hill on Monday 7 February, where Mac visited the famous Palace Hotel which was used in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, met the locals and sipped a milkshake at NSW’s oldest Milk Bar – Bell’s Milkbar.
Tuesday 8 February saw Mac head to the blissful beachside town of Yamba, famous for its world-class surf breaks and marine parks surrounded by national parks and wilderness reserves.
From there, Mac will head inland to Albury Wodonga, home of Australia’s longest river and one of the longest navigable waterways in the world – The Murray River – where visitors can explore the region by houseboat, canoe or bike.
The majestic Snowy Mountains will take centre stage on Thursday 10 February, home to Australia’s highest peak. Mac will broadcast live from Lake Jindabyne where visitors can tackle world-class mountain bike trails, ride horses through untouched bushland and fish in crystal clear streams.
The beachside town of Newcastle will be Sam’s final stop on Friday 11 February where he’ll soak up the region’s famous surf beaches, explore its buzzing bars and fascinating street art.
To coincide with the week-long broadcast, Qantas has launched a NSW Sunrise Sale from 7-21 February offering a flight deal for every location across the week, including its brand new Sydney to Broken Hill route announced live on Sunrise on Monday 7 February.
