Bondi – Le Paris Go Cafe has a unique vibe and excellent coffee! I specifically loved the dirty vanilla chai latte (insta: leparisgocafe)
Wentworth Falls – Not only are there spectacular views and lots of fun trails to take hikes on, but there is a neat cafe close by to grab some food before or after. Blue Mist Cafe is a cute little cafe with an upstairs lined with books to buy. I love browsing while waiting for my food and left there with multiple books the first time I went.

Wisemans Ferry – This is a cute spot with a large park to relax at with some cafes and shops close by. You can also take your car on the ferry across the river
Garie Beach – This is a little less known small beach with some beautiful outlooks you can hike up to. Definitely worth a trip, although better to go earlier as parking is a bit limited!
Glenworth Valley horse riding – My husband and I went quad riding here a while back and absolutely loved it! You get to go out with a small group for an hour or so through the trails in the woods. It had actually been raining a lot before we got there and we had a muddy ride but it made it even more fun! There are other options such as horse riding, axe throwing, kayaking, etc. and we’d love to go back sometime to experience it. (website: https://glenworth.com.au/)
Sydney -The Governor’s House – I am sure every local knows this spot and likely has been, but if you haven’t it’s such a cool place to go – especially if you’re interested in history. You can go in without a guided tour and take your time going through the rooms. The architecture and history behind this place is mesmerising and it’s also such a beautiful place to take some pictures.
Lithgow – This is a place to spend a couple of days max, but is such a cute small town area. There are a few cafes, thrift shops, and boutiques in town to enjoy for a part of your day. I specifically loved revercollective boutique and bought a couple of gorgeous pieces there myself. There are some picturesque spots around the small town including the gorgeous uniting church downtown and the Lithgow blast furnace that has some old ruins from a building in the early 1900’s. We stayed at the Arundell Cottage that is a gorgeous farm with trails to take and the hosts were lovely. We stopped and spent time with the horses they own and you would very often see kangaroos hopping around. (insta: revercollective_)
Cecil Park – Hitting Targets – This was such a fun activity for Zack and I. It’s perfect for a date, or just something to do with family and friends. It was my second time clay shooting and I can’t wait to go back! (website: https://hittingtargets.com.au/)
