If there’s one thing that Australia is probably internationally known for, it’s for having gorgeous beaches. Many of these can be found along the east coast. Here is a guide to five of the most rewarding beaches in eastern Australia.
Wategoes Beach, Byron Bay, NSW
If you are in a relaxed mood and want to spend the afternoon chilling out, then Wategoes beach is for you. Paddle in its sky-blue waters or take a walk up to the bay’s lighthouse for stunning views. You also might bump into the Hemsworth brothers.
Chinamans Beach, Jervis Bay, NSW
Chinamans beach offers breath-taking scenery and is not as busy as other major beaches in the region. Although the water can be quite chilly, the beautiful open horizon where the sea seems to flow up into the sky more than makes up for it.
Noosa Heads, Queensland
Noosa Heads is located in an area known as the Sunshine Coast. Enticing white sands give way to clear blue water on a beach that is only a short walk away from Noosa National Park. For any nature lovers out there, this is the place for you.
Horseshoe Bay, Bermagui, NSW
This is another quiet beach found opposite the sleepy town of Bermagui. Since there are no waves, it is the perfect spot for families who just want to splash around in the soothing waters and build sandcastles.
Bondi Beach, Sydney, NSW
This is probably the most famous beach in Australia. Located in Sydney’s eastern suburb, it is easy to access if you are only passing through the city. There is also the possibility that you might feature on the Australian TV show Bondi Rescue if you are there in the summer season!
