It is bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the east and the states of Victoria to the south, South Australia to the west, and Queensland to the north.

The colonies of Tasmania , South Australia, Victoria, and Queensland were successively carved out of its territory in the 19th century. The Australian Capital Territory at Canberra was ceded to the Commonwealth government in , and the Jervis Bay enclave on the Pacific coast was similarly ceded in to provide a port for Canberra. Although it is by no means the largest Australian state in area, New South Wales has the largest economy among them and, in its demographic , political, and economic variety, constitutes a microcosm of Australia as a whole.
It reflects the problems of a semiperipheral country adjusting to changes in the world economy. Its formerly robust manufacturing base adjusted to competition from cheaper and better products from overseas, with heavier industries being replaced by the production of elaborately transformed goods. Unemployment levels run relatively high, often above the national average and marked by considerable regional variations.
The expansion of the property, financial, and business sectors accounts for much employment growth from the s onward, and fluctuations in those areas similarly have an impact on the economic trends of the state overall. Rapidly expanding international tourism stimulated extensive development in services, although it has heightened vulnerability to global economic downturns, and the impact of large numbers of tourist arrivals placed strains on facilities and the environment.
Since the turn of the 21st century, the population of New South Wales has grown more slowly relative to most other Australian states, reflecting the dynamics of economic growth across the country.
Such settlement is driven by the greater presence of amenities in those areas, although it is also associated with concern about the degradation of the land resources of the state. As in all the Australian states, the considerable autonomy of the state government under the terms of Australian federation in has been—especially since the s—steadily limited by Commonwealth government control of the collection and expenditure of public moneys.
More recently, there has been pressure to achieve greater levels of national coordination in the provision of health care, education, and the management of environmental resources and to outsource the provision of services once provided by public agencies. Even with those changes, New South Wales—by virtue of its history, diversity , and economy—exerts considerable influence over the culture and prosperity of Australia and over international perceptions of Australian society and identity.
Area , square miles , square km. Population 7,, A narrow coastal strip of fertile river valleys, plains, and granite outcrops is bounded to the north by a series of plateaus stretching from the New England Range , to the west by steep gorges and ascents leading up to the tableland , to the south and west by the central and southern tablelands, and to the south by the Monaro plateau.
To the west of Monaro lie the Snowy Mountains , including the Kosciuszko massif, which rises to 7, feet 2, metres in Mount Kosciuszko , the highest mountain in Australia. The general elevation of the tableland is 2, feet metres , high enough to provide severe winters and snow. Except in the south, the descent to the inland slopes is gentle, providing a zone of undulating land intersected by rivers that have their origins in the tablelands. In the west are the semiarid plains, composed of colluvial material, with bedrock exposed in some areas, as in the Barrier Ranges.
