Hello, we've just found out DH is going to have 10 days off at the start of April, so decided to do a road trip towards NSW somewhere. We have no idea where we want to end up, or stay along the way, any suggestions would be great? Id love to see some beautiful NSW beaches, but not sure on any other great places to visit in NSW? We might head to Sydney but unsure yet. We have a 2 yo DD too so want to go to some places fun for her! Thanks

I love the area around Batemans Bay during the Easter holidays. Good toddler friendly beaches there too.

There are some lovely towns on the nsw south coast all the way up to wollongong, after that it gets more city like. There is mogo zoo near batemans bay for your dd. Blessing of the fleet festival and parade Easter weekend in ulladulla. Beautiful white beaches up near Sussex inlet jervis bay area. The country closer to the border is magnificent too. Have a look at some maps, google some places and see what you think you'll like.

Kiama is beautiful.
Me and DP broke down there on New Years Day last year on our way back from Sydney, We ended up having to camp in a football oval for 3 nights because there was no accomadation but we loved it. The beaches were amazing and the people so friendly and really helped us out. There was a phenomenal pizza shop on the strip too which had people queuing out the door.
