10. See Lord Howe IslandA tiny crescent of land 780 kilometres north-east of Sydney, Lord Howe Island is the remotest, and most beautiful part of NSW. It's a rich green island clad in palms, ferns and grasses and bordered by golden sandy beaches. Apart from the barren volcanic spire of Ball's Pyramid, Lord Howe Island stands alone. In 1982 it was placed on UNESCO's World Heritage list as a "natural area of universal value and outstanding beauty".
