Turn 2020 Around Together

By Ray Williams

We’ve all had our lives on hold for six months or more, now’s the time to get out there, enjoy our NSW stories, landscapes and experiences and turn 2020 around together. NSW residents can help reboot the state’s visitor economy by hitting the road for a short-break, taking a Sydney ‘playcation’, attending events, visiting attractions or even making the most of a day trip.

Tickets are now on sale for the NSW Government’s Great Southern Nights music event – 1000 COVID-safe gigs across the state throughout November. Check out the gig guide for details. Each gig is supported by the NSW Government through tourism and major events agency Destination NSW. For more information:
