World Tourism Day is on 27 September so what better time to book a NSW getaway and support the local tourism industry. There are plenty of incredible adventures to choose from including meeting Frankie FireFighter along Port Macquarie’s Koala Trail, exploring Sydney on a Playcay, experiencing BridgeClimb’s Ultimate climb and viewing Shane Warne’s Baggy Greens at Bowral’s International Cricket Hall of Fame.

Here are 10 ways to mark World Tourism Day in Sydney and NSW:
