A favourite destination of those fond of new experiences, of young adults in search of adventure, Australia is the ideal place to recharge your batteries in a setting that is both a change of scene and yet familiar. If many things will seem unknown to you, other things will make you feel at home in this country, which is a skilful blend of British and Aboriginal heritage. You will see that in Australia, barbecue culture is everywhere, that on the beaches, you find ready-to-use appliances! You will see also, that surfing is not a legend, but is really part and parcel of Australian culture. You will be surprised at the dozens of wild and extraordinary sites that the country has in store, like the Bungle Bungle Range, a real treasure. You will also understand that Australia is the place where human and animal interaction happens all the time. On Kangaroo Island, you will come close to koalas comfortably seated on their eucalyptus branch, just like you will swim alongside dolphins.

Start planning your beach vacation in Australia

Boasting over 21,000 miles of coastline, Australia is the perfect destination for a beach vacation. From the surfing hotspots in the south to idyllic tropical beaches in the north, Australia’s beaches are as diverse as this fascinating continent. Whether you’re traveling alone or with a young family, it won’t be difficult to uncover your own little slice of heaven. Evaneos' local English-speaking experts will show you how.

What makes Australia a great beach destination?

Australia’s natural beauty and warm weather make it a great destination for beach-lovers. Surfing is one of the country’s favorite pastimes and during summer many visitors opt to take lessons. Popular surfing beaches in Australia include Coolangatta, Noosa, and Yallingup. However, there are plenty of other local secrets scattered around the country. 

Further north, Queensland’s beaches are fringed by the Great Barrier Reef, making them ideal for snorkeling and diving. On the other side of the continent, Western Australia’s beaches are also exquisitely beautiful, and generally much less crowded.

The best beaches to visit in Australia

Whether you want to immerse yourself in Australia’s beach culture at well-known destinations like Bell’s Beach or Cronulla or prefer a more nature-based experience, there are many incredible beaches in every part of the country.

  • Experience Australian surfing culture at Manly Beach

    Located approximately 10 miles from central Sydney, Manly is one of Australia’s most iconic surfing beaches. However, its wide expanse of soft golden sand also makes it popular with families with young children.

  • Enjoy a nature-based family getaway at Aireys Inlet

    Surrounded by the Great Otway National Park, Aireys Inlet offers visitors breathtakingly beautiful beaches in a pristine natural environment. On top of great surfing locations, there are plenty of sheltered swimming spots on nearby Paincalac Creek, as well as opportunities for kayaking and snorkeling.

  • Live the Australian dream at Mission Beach

    One of the most picturesque towns in Queensland's tropical north, Mission Beach is situated close to the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. Its beautiful sandy beach, sheltered by coconut palms, and clear azure water make it ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
  • Experience spectacular Western Australian sunsets at Cable Beach, Broome

    A sojourn at Cable Beach is a highlight for many visitors to Broome, in Western Australia's remote far north. Popular activities include swimming and camel rides along the beach at sunset.
  • Rejuvenate and relax at iconic Glenelg Beach

    Situated only 7 miles from Adelaide, Glenelg Beach has been a favorite family destination for well over a century. Boasting a long sandy beach, trendy cafes, and an amusement park, there is so much to see and do for visitors of all ages.

Tips for planning a beach vacation in Australia

There are great beaches throughout the country and most can be accessed easily by local trains and buses. The sun is extremely strong in Australia so hats and sunblock should be worn at all times.
