A little slice of heaven!
People planning a visit to NSW national parks and reserves are urged to check for closures and fire bans before heading out.
Visitors are advised to avoid remote areas during the current bushfire conditions and stay up to date with the fire situation by using the Fires Near Me app.
Summer is finally here and while Sydney is home to some of the best beaches in the world, it's fun to shake things up sometimes and venture into some of the other stunning outdoor experiences in our own backyward!
Take a look at some of our favs:
