Home to shimmering Sydney Harbour, red earth deserts, mountain ranges, rugged coastline and pristine beaches, NSW offers the essential Australian experience in just one state.

Destination NSW organises individual and group media tours to Australian and international media so they can produce stories to inform and inspire their audiences. Visits are coordinated by Destination NSW publicists and are supported by NSW tourism operators who provide assistance with accommodation, meals, transport and touring.

Media assisted through the program represent online, print and broadcast outlets and reach audiences targeted by Destination NSW. Coverage that results from the visit is collected, evaluated and distributed to sponsoring partners.
