It’s a long drive from NSW to ACT so I recommend going early in the morning so you can visit all the “tourist destinations” or better stay overnight so you don’t have to rush within the day. You can plan a different tour in Blue Mountains but that would take you another 3-hour drive. Definitely not near if you’re wondering 😀
