Great Places PSNM

We’re so fortunate to have such a diversity of wonderful public spaces to visit in NSW, it’s hard to know where to start!

To help you on your way, this selection of great places exemplify all the experiences and adventures of being out and about in public space.

Think beyond the places you already know well and use the Walks Near Me map to find something new: this might be the libraries that take you on adventures of the mind, the cultural or historical precincts where you’ll feel like you’re in another world or time, the cheeky laneways that add colour to town centres, or the delightful ocean pools that line the coast.
