The Paddington Reservoir is nestled right in the heart of Sydney’s Inner Eastern suburb of Paddington. The park is heritage listed and is situated below the main footpath, so it can be easily missed by those without a watchful eye. The space used to operate as a water reservoir in the 19th century but has since been converted into a site reminiscent of the ancient Baths of Caracalla in Rome and jazzed up with beautiful green gardens. The park is public; however, it often goes unnoticed as it’s relatively hidden away —a perfect spot to enjoy an afternoon sunset.
This beautiful gem in the Royal National Park boasts sparkling water, cliff jumps and lots of space to sit back and relax. Although it can get busy during the warmer months, we’d recommend heading to Wattamolla falls on a weekday to truly get the place to yourself. The water is perfect for snorkelling and swimming, and there’s a beach on the other side if you want to switch things up.
Nellie’s Glen is a beautiful bushland swimming hole located in Budderoo National Park on the inland outskirts of Wollongong. Take a five-minute walk from Nellie’s Glen Picnic Area, and you will be rewarded with a serene waterhole and waterfall that’s deep enough for a frolic and a swim. Relax in the Eucalyptus Forest or visit the impressive Carrington Falls just fifty metres downstream.
Located inland on the mid-north coast of NSW and around a 15-minute drive from the centre of Bellingen is the Never Never Creek, a beautiful and clear fresh-water body of water located in The Promised Land. Doesn’t it just sound magical? Brimming with life, the Promised Land offers many spots to swim, jump and try out numerous rope swings scattered around the area. It’s surrounded by lush bush, rolling mountains and fresh, crisp air. Truly a magnificent place.
Just north of Coffs Harbour sits the small surf community of Emerald Beach. The area has three beaches to choose from - Shelly’s and Serenity, plus the main Emerald Beach - so if one beach is blown out it’s almost a guarantee that one of the others has got your back. Upon the beautiful headland is a congregating spot for local kangaroos and a stellar place to watch the surfers from above. A few highly-rated restaurants and cafés line the main road in case you get peckish.
