Whitehaven Beach, Whitsundays, QLD

Despite the fact it will most likely cost more than $100 to get to from the mainland Whitsunday Coast, this one tops the list for Queensland.

You don't need not to seek out this beach specifically. It is more symbolic of the thousands of other crystal clear water white sand beaches on the Great Barrier Reef.

Not an easy task to choose the best beach in Queensland because not only do you have the great Barrier Reef but the Sand islands like Fraser and Moreton which have hundreds of KM of the best beaches in the world and all those other little unamed beaches on the Sunshine Coast which are outstanding.

See the Whitsunday Islands Australia.

The beaches on Fraser island surely would have to also feature on any best beaches list. Located on the worlds largest sand island complete with it's own unique sand island rainforest habitat and crystal clear lakes. The beach on the Eastern coast stretches for more than 100 km and is the highway and the airfield for the island.


Surfers Paradise Beach

Sure it may not have the natural beauty of all the other beaches on this list, but without it's ability to keep millions of other holidaymakers occupied and away, the other beaches could not enjoy their exclusiveness.


Wineglass Bay Best Australian Beach in Tasmania

Often regarded as one of the world's best beaches and perhaps also the best beach in Tasmania. Shaped like a wineglass and reportedly in pristine condition.


Best Beaches in Western Australia

Cable Beach

This may be an unusual pick for the best beach in Western Australia but I have been there and it is an oasis to find after crossing the Kimberly. Broome is an interesting place.

By the way, Tourism Western Australia lists Turquoise Bay as the best beach in WA. Cottesloe Beach is a good beach in Perth City.



Margaret River

Also in Western Australia, this region has magnificent white sand beaches that are refreshing to say the least. Huge wave often make it daunting and dangerous to swim.


Best Beaches in  New South Wales

The best beach in NSW is either Hyams Beach or the Coffs Harbour beaches. Byron Beach makes the list because it is one of the few places calm enough for my wife ( who likes to float around like a tea bag) to swim. Then this beach is kind of a symbolic of all those beautiful calm, safe beaches. Noosa beach is another good example.

Coffs Harbour beaches are surrounded by green hills (with kangaroos on top) making them very interesting to look at.

New South Wales has so many fantastic beaches that you can nearly show up anywhere and have it be beautiful. They are spoiled for choice down that way for sure!


Victoria has a few nice beaches like at Lakes Entrance. We haven't seen any beaches that compare to NSW in either Victoria or South Australia.

For some holiday ideas around all these great beaches check out Australia Resorts.
