Outback NSW has a mix of vast national parks, quirky towns, a thriving arts scene, rich and lasting Aboriginal heritage and the awe-inspiring magic of the desert, while the North Coast of NSW provides a taste of classic Aussie surf culture with great surf beaches and a relaxed lifestyle.

Summer in Sydney in is unbeatable! Stunning weather and a city that celebrates it’s diversity makes Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras the jewel in Sydney’s party season crown. With a festival season spanning three weeks, you can experience everything from parties, performing & visual arts, and community and sporting events!

Lismore is also home to the Tropical Fruits – the premier GLBTI community group in the Northern Rivers Region, who are famous for their New Years Eve Party and Festival.
