6 Incredible NSW Weekend Getaways

With international travel off the cards, there’s never been a better time for Aussies to explore our own backyard. To celebrate the launch of the Brand-New Mazda BT-50, we’ve pulled together six incredible weekend getaways across New South Wales to help you get off the grid, relax, and enjoy this beautiful country of ours.

The Best Of Byron Bay

Sure, it may not be the sleepy, hidden hippy gem that it once was, and some may scowl at its gentrification, but with world-class waves, weather, and hospitality – Byron Bay should still sit at the top of every domestic bucket list.


Chasing Waves On Sydney’s Northern Beaches

Welcome to the Northern Beaches. Life here is so colourful and relaxed, you’ll forget you’re only 15 kilometres from Sydney’s CBD. The waves are a little less crowded, cafes nowhere near as pretentious, and the restaurants are a little more refined. Turn the pace down a notch, jump head first into clear waters and settle in for a sundowner or two as you assimilate into the humble home of Sydney’s true north.


Exploring The Coastal Playground Of Port Stephens

With access to over 100 beaches literally on our doorstep, Sydney-siders can consider themselves spoilt for choice. Sometimes though, our luck runs thin; the crowds, the noise, the never-ending circling for a carpark, and the influencers in the wild. This summer, just get in the car and drive. If you’re looking to unplug after a screen-heavy week, load the fellas or the fam into the Brand-New Mazda BT-50 and hit the M1 north to Port Stephens.


A Summer Adventure In The Snowy Mountains

A long drive is deserving of a long weekend (or should it be the other way around?), so take three or four days to enjoy a summer twist on a classic NSW road trip – the Snowy Mountains region and Kosciuszko National Park. Outside of peak (winter) season, sidestep snowfields in lieu of alternative adrenaline-pumping adventure.


Fly Fishing The Cox's River

A weekend on the fly – literally. Skip the crowded views of the Blue Mountains’ peaks in search of what lies (and flies) beneath them, stopping to forage, fish, and wild swim.


Supporting The Stunning South Coast

A summer hotspot usually ravaged by tourists, the NSW South coast spent the better part of the ‘19/’20 summer being ravaged and engulfed by bushfires. Rebuilding from literal ashes, this special part of Australia will capture both your sense of adventure and your heart, now more than ever.
