Australia's Top 10 Beaches
Blessed with amazing weather, incredible natural beauty and many of the best expanses of sand on earth, as Australians we just love the beach.
There's almost nothing better than laying down a towel for a sandy snooze, paddling in the shallows with the kids, or catching some great waves with the surfboard.
So as you wind down from a year of toil and seek out some amazing beaches to spend time at this summer, we've come up with a definitive Aussie top 10.
There may be better quality beaches in Australia, but
Sydney's Bondi Beach is nothing short of an icon
that is renowned well beyond our sandy shores. With atmosphere, history and lots of people, Bondi is certainly one of Australia's most famous beaches.
The popular pick of the multiple great beaches on the Sunshine Coast, Noosa Main Beach just about has it all.
With perfect sand and water and waves that will suit the whole family, it's safe, accessible and bustling with sealife including dolphins and the odd whale.
Famous for that scene starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze at the end of Point Break
Bell's Beach gets a prominent mention as perhaps Australia's best surfing beach.
Just like in the movie, Bell's is where you can catch a huge wave, but be careful if you're taking the family because there is an exposed reef and the cliffs create a real-life point break.
Hyams Beach, in Jervis Bay NSW, gets a mention because it has just about everything. The nearby national park means you can explore a native forest,
the beach is perfect for family snorkelling, and you can take the sailboat or kayak out and catch sight of a dolphin.
6. Surfer's Paradise
Like Bondi, another iconic Aussie beach is Surfer's Paradise, that famous 3km stretch of gold between the high apartment buildings and the Pacific Ocean.
Straight out of a postcard, it's loved year-round by swimmers, surfers, runners and tourists from around the country and the globe.
5. Byron Bay
Just a couple of hours south of the border from Brisbane Airport is New South Wales' Byron Bay. A perfect destination for the beach lover, there are many to explore on this seemingly endless stretch of coast.
Popular with the surfers, Byron's beaches are not crowded, the views from your headlands walks are dramatic, the sand is fine and white and the water turquoise blue.
4. Cable Beach
Broome's Cable Beach is a consistent favourite, and it's not hard to see why. We're talking over
20 kilometres of the purest of sand and clear waters amid the amazing hills backdrop.
Ride a camel along the shoreline to the dinosaur footprints, spot dolphins and whales, and watch the unprecedented sunsets.
3. Wineglass Bay
Travel from Brisbane to Tasmania and then head north-east to the clam-shaped Wineglass Bay - you won't regret it! It's a bit of a trek from both Launceston and Hobart, but once you get there you'll find
an absolute paradise of colour, with incredible white sand, pink granite and the most stunning blue sea.
2. Turquoise Bay
If you love to pull on a snorkel and explore exquisite reefs and an incredible array of colourful fish, sea turtles and reek sharks,
then Turquoise Bay in Western Australia could be for you. Turquoise Bay is aptly named, with the pristine clear waters and sand bar.
If you want a beach from your dreams, head to the Whitsunday Island and find Whitehaven Beach.
If you've seen marketing material for the Whitsundays, you've seen this 7km stretch of absolutely perfect white sand and vivid blue water - it's nothing short of magical.
