WHO ARE WE?
Destination Sydney Surrounds North (DSSN) is one of seven Destination Networks formed as a result of the review by Destination NSW into the effectiveness and structure of regional tourism industry organisations.

The DSSN zone encompasses 10 local government areas being: Central Coast, Cessnock, Dungog, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Muswellbrook, Newcastle, Port Stephens, Singleton and Upper Hunter.
