There’s something for the thrill seekers too

If you want to elevate your heart rate, regional NSW has plenty on offer.

In this leg of the road trip, Adam and crew head to Gloucester and try something new.

Give in to your thrill-seeking side

Regional travel is also the perfect opportunity to give in to try something new. Which is exactly what Adam and crew did in Gloucester.

Only a 3-hour drive from Sydney, the gorgeous town of Gloucester is the perfect mix of nature and adventure, great for bushwalking, camping and river adventures.

Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre offers canoeing, kayaking, abseiling and mountain bike adventures — perfect if you’ve got energy to burn and looking for something active to do on your road trip.

Discover some fresh food treasures

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, make sure you visit Gloucester Farmers Market. On every second Saturday of each month, Gloucester Farmers Market is a treasure trove of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, cheeses, artisan-made local produce, music, and much more.
