The Australian coastline is approximately the same length as the circumference of planet Earth. Along this vast coastline you will find endless idyllic beaches.
Bondi Beach in Sydney is one of Australia’s most famous beaches and one of the worlds most well known. It is quintessentially Australian; you will find bronzed bodies and lifeguards ensuring the safety of the many that flock to Bondi to surf in the local waters.
With 15 miles of turquoise Indian Ocean and dazzling white sands Cable Beach, in Broome, Western Australia is one of the worlds most beautiful beaches. Surely there cannot be a more enchanting means of watching the huge red sun sink below the horizon on the Indian Ocean than when riding a camel on Cable Beach at sunset.
With its whiter than white silica sands and crystal clear water Whitehaven Beach is one of Australias most beautiful beaches. It is the ideal Australian beach in the Whitsundays to enjoy a secluded champagne picnic on the beach, swim in the sparkling water and if you are particularly lucky to be visited by the hungry goannas. Perhaps climb Hill Inlet to see a school of stingrays below in the azure water of their breeding ground. Exquisite Whitehaven Beach can only be reached by boat or your privately chartered light aircraft.
You can enjoy a 25-minute tram ride to Glenelg, Adelaides city by the sea. This historical township colonized in 1836 when Governor John Hindmarsh and the first colonists landed on Holdfast Bay and read the proclamation establishing the government of the colony whilst shading themselves under a gum tree. This gum tree still stands today.
The worlds longest running surf competition is staged annually at Bells Beach, Torquay near Melbourne. The swells from the Southern Ocean that slow down and become steep over the reef-strewn shallows form the outstanding, reliable surf. It is here at Torquay that you will find the headquarters of internationally renowned surfing clothing companies such as Billabong, Quicksilver and Ripcurl.
Manly Beach, north of Sydney is located on a narrow peninsula that offers both harbor and ocean beaches. The distinctive white sands, huge Norfolk Pines that line the beach and the numerous inlets and coves contribute to Manlys charm. Manly is easily accessible by ferry from Circular Quay.
