Turquoise Bay

Exmouth, Western Australia

This spot is a wonderland for both avid and beginner snorkelers as it leads into the iconic Ningaloo Reef brimming with vibrant coral colours and an abundance of sea life from turtles to stingrays.

Cable Beach

Broome, Western Australia

The best part of Cable Beach is the unique opportunity to take in the glowing orange and reds of a Broome sunset on camelback.

Long stretches of soft white sand meet blue waters in the perfect spot to pull up a chair and relax or get moving with plenty of activities from kayaking to fishing.

Greens Pool

Denmark, Western Australia

Lying on the edge of William Bay National Park, this beach haven earned its name from its famous turquoise green waters and picture-perfect setting.

To describe it in one word: magical. The sheltered cove offers calm waters under the bluest of blue skies and is a sight to behold.

Mooloolaba Beach

Mooloolaba, Queensland

Particularly family-friendly and a mandatory visit if you’re holidaying on the Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba has everything from a boardwalk for your morning stroll to refreshing waters and nearby cafes and restaurants for a brunch stop.

You’ll find many sunbaking, surfing, shopping, or enjoying a morning cuppa along the shores.

Cape Le Grand National Park

Esperance, Western Australia

Combine beautiful beaches with bushy hikes and we’re one happy camper.

Known for its idyllic scenery, bush-walking, fishing, camping, and sunbaking kangaroos, it doesn’t get more Aussie than rugged coastal peaks leading onto crisp white shores.

Whitehaven Beach

Whitsunday Island, Queensland

We’ve probably said it before, but stepping onto Whitehaven Beach is basically like stepping into a postcard.

The water here is 50 shades of sparkling blue, and the squeaky white sand will have you plopping down and lulling into relaxation in no time. It’s protected by Whitsunday Islands National Park, so you can guarantee it will always be sparkling clean.
