Top 5 Beaches in Australia to Hit This Spring

As the weather gets warmer down under and colder in other countries, there’s no better time than now to hit Australia’s best beaches.

1. Burleigh Heads Beach, Gold Coast, QLD

For plenty of sun and sand, the Gold Coast is the place to go. Burleigh Heads Beach is less crowded with tourists, and has great surf conditions and coastal trails. The beach is situated close to a major highway, but it’s unpolluted, with island-resort qualities.

2. 75 Mile Beach, Fraser Island, QLD

75 Mile Beach can be found on Fraser Island, the world’s biggest sand island. This dazzling beach has a combination of white, orange and dark ochre sand colours. Inland attractions include Champagne Pools, which is a freshwater lake.

3. Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Islands, Whitsundays

Whitehaven Beach has pristine white sand, lush surroundings and a stunning reef beneath crystal clear aqua waters. The soft silica sand never becomes too hot under the sun.

4. Cottesloe Beach, Perth, WA

Cottesloe Beach is the best place to swim and to watch the sunset on Sundays in a beach pub. The beach is also popular for its laidback lifestyle and cafes.

5. Bronte Beach, Sydney, NSW

Bronte Beach is perfect for the whole family, with no pubs in the area. Children can enjoy the rock pool and there are BBQ areas and large grassy for picnics.
