Australia Beach Holidays

Beach Holidays in Australia

Introduction

With a coastline covering over 25,000 kilometres, it's no surprise that Australia is gifted with some of the best beaches in the world. Whether it's an iconic summer beach holiday, idyllic island getaway or wild sea adventure you seek, no luxury holiday is complete without dedicating time spent exploring the country's coast.

Arguably the country's most well-known attraction, the Great Barrier Reef conjures images of sparkling white sand, colourful coral reefs and clear blue seas. Nestled within the heart of this natural wonder sits the Whitsundays, 74 idyllic islands that create the perfect setting for a relaxing beach holiday. Popular destinations include Hayman, Hamilton and Daydream Islands.

Access the best beaches by car

While Sydney is home to the iconic Bondi Beach, a drive up the New South Wales coast towards Byron Bay will offer more attractive and secluded beach spots. Stop off along the way and visit towns such as Port Macquarie where you can head out on fishing trips and dine on the freshest seafood in local restaurants.

A self-drive along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria offers dramatic coastal cliff views and quaint beachside towns. Visit Torquay and Lorne to witness how Australia’s beaches play an important role in defining the character and culture of coastal communities.

South and Western Australia

South Australia and Tasmania offer picturesque National Parks that front onto secluded beaches and remote picnic spots. You'll be treated to wildlife, wilderness and undisturbed coastal views as far as the eye can see.

Western Australia offers 12,000kms of pristine beaches. Lucky Bay in Cape Le Grand National Park is considered Australia’s whitest beach and has kangaroos lazing on its shores. Broome’s Cable Beach offers breathtaking Indian Ocean sunsets and Monkey Mia in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area offers a chance to get up close and personal with wild dolphins.
