The New South Wales Coast stretches from Tweed Heads on the Queensland border - right down to Eden on the Victorian border. Australians drive on the left, and roads are generally good with major routes well signposted and speed limits and distances expressed in kilometres. New South Wales operates on daylight saving time from March to October where clocks are put an hour forward (later). Sydney is Australia's biggest city with a population over 4.5 million and Newcastle is the country's second largest non-capital city with a population over half a million.
