Here Are Our Top Picks For Australia’s Best Beaches

Bondi Beach – Campbell Parade, Sydney, NSW

Bondi Beach

Australia’s beach culture began at Sydney’s iconic Bondi beach. It made history as the location of bathing suit protests in the 1900s. The protests paved the way for popular culture to embrace the bikini.

Today, Bondi welcomes locals and tourists to its shores all year round. It is known around the world for being easily accessible from the city – just a short bus ride from the heart of Sydney. 

Bondi Beach greets you with a stunning bay, cool turquoise waters, sunbathers, swimmers, surfers and the tanned lifeguards from the TV show, Bondi Rescue. There are also trendy restaurants, cafes, and boutique shops to add to the appeal of Bond

 

Whitehaven Beach – Whitsunday Island, QLD

Whitehaven Beach spans over 7km along the coast. If you want a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere, it’s ideal to visit this natural wonder as it rarely becomes overcrowded, even during the summer.

As you savour the laid-back atmosphere with picturesque walking tracks, you can find plenty of dining options. While you’re there, have a glimpse of the local wildlife, from seabirds to pods of dolphins and humpback whales.
