Australia is the land of sunshine, surf and sand. The island country is lined with a number of beaches that have ensured its global renown and made it a must-see holiday destination. Despite the number of beaches, each has its own distinct personality and appeal. It can be difficult to choose between them, so we’ve put together a list of the top six.

Bondi Beach, New South Wales

Whitehaven beach, Queensland

This beach has cemented its place as one of Australia’s finest natural attractions. Located on Whitsunday Island, Whitehaven beach stretches for 7km of uninterrupted silica sand and glassy blue waters. The Hill Inlet is arguably the most remarkable part of the beach as it creates swirls of white sand and turquoise waters. Its remote location could make it difficult to reach, but flights to Hamilton Island will place you only a leisurely cruise from the beach.

Cable Beach, Western Australia

Western Australia may not be known for their beaches, but Cable Beach is one of the country’s best. This beach extends for a luxurious 22km across Western Australia’s coastline and overlooks the Indian Ocean. This beach boasts a rich cultural history and striking red ochre cliffs. Additionally, visitors between March and October can view the Staircase to the Moon. This is a natural phenomenon where the moonlight across the mud flats creates the illusion of a staircase to the moon.

Wineglass Bay, Tasmania

Tasmania is famous for its sprawling forests, which makes Wineglass Bay a welcome sunny retreat. Located within Freycinet National Park, this beach is instantly recognizable for its perfect sandy curve and isolated location. Towering pink granite mountains and lush hinterland form the backdrop for this beach, and make it an unmissable photo opportunity.
