New South Wales also hosts many festivals and shows such as the Royal Easter Show, the Blues and Roots festival and the annual Tamworth country music festival.

Sydney is a food lovers' haven and is the best place to seek international cuisine as well as gourmet foods. Coastal regions are a great place to try seafood and many towns in the central region specialise in food made from local produce.

If you enjoy shopping, have a look at the Queen Victoria Building, Strand Arcade, Centrepoint and Skygarden in Sydney. All have a range of stores selling clothes, jewellery, gifts and more.

There are also excellent markets to be found in Sydney as well as other towns, so have a look around and you're sure to find a bargain!
