The Top 10 Beaches In Australia January 8, 2018

Whitehaven Beach stretches over 7km along the coast of its host, Whitsunday Island, meaning that even in peak seasons it will rarely be crowded enough to ruin the atmosphere. The myriad of coves, lagoons, and inlets that dot its surrounds only serve to add to the mystique and exploration options, with low tide being the best time for overall viewing experiences.
Whitehaven Beach is a definite “must-see” in the Whitsundays. The crystal clear aqua waters and pristine silica sand of Whitehaven stretch over seven kilometers along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays. It defines nature at its best and provides the greatest sense of relaxation and escape.

2.Cottesloe Beach | Perth

Cottesloe BeachJanuary 8, 2018

Cottesloe Beach is halfway between Perth and Fremantle, about 14 kilometres (8.7 miles), or less than 30 minutes drive, from Perth city centre. Public buses leave frequently from Perths Elizabeth Quay Bus Station. Trains run from Perth Station to Cottesloe Station every 15 minutes and get you there in less than 20 minutes on the Fremantle Line. A half day tour with AAT Kings visits Cottesloe as well as Perths Kings Park and Botanic Gardens, and Fremantle.

The clean, clear coastline and smooth terraced lawns are filled with Perth’s most buff bods, while kids hang out in playground heaven. Cottesloe is a long beach with several different swimming areas and reefy sections. It is really is one of the must-visit places if you’re in Perth during summer.

3.Cable Beach | Broome

Cable Beach | BroomeJanuary 8, 2018

Cable Beach is undeniably the most dramatic beach in Western Australia’s Kimberley region: Its 13-mile stretch of pure white sand is set against a backdrop of red ochre cliffs, and fringed by the dark blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Yet despite its jaw-dropping beauty and growing popularity, it remains relatively under-the-radar, a hidden gem on Australia’s western shores frequented largely by locals. Though you could easily spend an entire day doing nothing but sunbathing on its sweeping, sun-kissed shore, we suggest taking a camel ride along the empty beach, preferably at sunrise or sunset, for an experience you won’t soon forget.

4.Burleigh Heads | Queensland

Burleigh Heads | QueenslandJanuary 8, 2018

Burleigh Heads is a suburb on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. Given its nature as a beach destination, it’s only reasonable to expect the Gold Coast to have a fairly big range of contenders in the “best beach” category; However increasing crowds and the gaudily “touristy” atmosphere of some of its stretches of coastline takes some of the charm away from what are otherwise beautiful beach areas.

5.Ninety Mile Beach | Victoria

Travel
Ninety Mile Beach January 8, 2018

The Ninety Mile Beach is a sandy stretch of beach on the south-eastern coastline of the East Gippsland region of Victoria in Australia. The beach faces Bass Strait and backs the Gippsland Lakes.

In the northern section, the beach runs along a sandbar on what amounts to a series of tidal islands. Behind this are several large lakes and numerous shallow littoral lagoons. The three main lakes are Lake King, Lake Victoria and Lake Wellington, partially contained within The Lakes National Park.

6.Noosa Main Beach | Sunshine Coast

Noosa Main BeachJanuary 8, 2018

Though beautiful beaches are a dime a dozen on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Noosa’s Main Beach is arguably the area’s most popular. For one, it’s postcard-perfect, with its golden shore, turquoise waters, and swaying palms. It’s also patrolled by lifeguards every day of the year, boasts ample facilities, and is conveniently located next to the popular Hastings Street shopping and restaurant precinct (read: great for families). Plus, thanks to its sheltered, north-facing direction, the beach has a mild climate and gentle surf all year round.

7.75 Mile Beach | Fraser Island

Travel
75 Mile BeachJanuary 8, 2018

75 Mile has much more going for it than simply its size as its various stretches of multi-coloured sands form a vivid mosaic of white to hues of bright oranges to ochre tones. The waters of the beach are less of an attraction than one might think, with the relatively large number of Tiger Sharks that inhabit the shallows leading many to instead look inland from the beach for their cooling off and swimming experiences.

It’s on this front that 75 Mile Beach truly shines, with a myriad of crystal-clear freshwater lakes that lie within walking distance of the shoreline. One section, in particular, the Champagne Pools, is exceptionally popular with visitors and adds a truly unique atmosphere to the swimming experience.

8.Bells Beach | Victoria
