Australia is back! Here’s 10 amazing places to visit in 2022, as recommended by Wanderlust UK

Sydney is an obvious choice but head just one hour north and you can explore the beauty and tranquillity of the Hawkesbury River. Cradled by National Parks with UNESCO World Heritage status and dotted with secluded river communities, the Hawkesbury River is navigable for over 100 kilometres with 1100 kilometres of foreshore fringe. The western end of the river forms a peaceful boundary for the Sydney region – you could cruise and explore these waters for weeks and still not see it all. The region is also famed for its food and unique tasting opportunities, include pearl meat tasting at Broken Bay Pearl Farm in Mooney Mooney. Here you can also try the local Sydney Rock Oysters while learning some of the world’s finest pearls are harvested in its ‘shellar door’.

Sleepover at the recently opened Marramarra Lodge – only one hour from Sydney this retreat overlooking the Hawkesbury River feels a world away — in both vibe and style. The 14 luxe tents and bungalows celebrate the surrounds, which you can also discover on tours revealing the region’s pearling and Aboriginal history. Meals are a highlight, with degustations at Budyari Restaurant as pretty as they are tasty.
