Top 3 weekend getaways around Sydney

Eager to escape from the big city?

The amazing thing about Sydney is that no matter which direction you decide drive off, there is always some getaway that’s well within your driving distance. The best part is, there’s always something to cater for everyone. Here are 3 weekend escapes that you can take with Kingstarchaufferedcars.com.au .

Hunter Valley Private Tours

From the scenic shoreline of Newcastle to the lavish vineyards of the Hunter Valley, the Hunter Region truly is the flawless escape from the big bad city life. Just 160km out of Sydney city, this region is world famous for its incredible wines.

Before heading back to the hustle and bustle of the big city, stop off in Newcastle for a relaxing day at the beach or any other spot that you fancy.

Jervis Bay

Fun-fact: The whitest sand in the world is merely 200km south of Sydney. This beautiful spot is famously called Jervis Bay. Apart from the remarkable view of its white sand beaches against the turquoise waters, Jervis Bay is the perfect destination for sea-lovers. Fishing, scuba diving and whale watching are among the many water-based activities available at Jervis Bay.

You can also take breaks to make the journey more memorable. Take a pit stop in the quaint village of Berry where you can view many historical buildings listed on the New South Wales Heritage Register. Because of its

unique charm and rural feel, you might never want to leave. Many city-dwellers have relocated to Berry in search of a rural lifestyle.

Blue Mountains

If you don’t want to wander too far from Sydney, this day trip is textbook written for you. The Blue Mountains is your choice is only 50km from Sydney, yet you’ll feel hundreds of miles away. With 10K square kilometers of wilderness, and sitting 1 kilometer above sea level, the air is crisp and clean in the Blue Mountains (a World Heritage listed site).

Let one of our drivers make the climb to Katoomba, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and some brunch on the main drag, and then head over to the Three Sisters Lookout for a view of the iconic geographic formation.

If you’re feeling up to it, you can take a gondola ride over the gorge – a spectacular vantage point from which to view wide expanse of wilderness that comprises the Blue Mountains. When you are finished, ride over to Leura, a miniature and classier version of Katoomba, for some dinner and some wine.

If you need to get away from the city, you can’t go wrong with any of these options. If you book Kingstarchaufferedcars.com.au, one of our booking managers will work with you to create the perfect itinerary for your getaway, and one of our friendly, professional and knowledgeable drivers will do the rest.
