When foreigners travel to Australia, it’s undeniable that most of them don’t visit or even think about going to the Northern Territory. Located in a remote part of the island, dozens of hours from the most popular destinations like Sydney and Brisbane, it’s a shame that this beautiful area doesn’t get enough attention.

The Northern Territory is blessed with pristine and beautiful beaches on the always-warm Indian Ocean, which are definitely worth visiting. Here are three that you absolutely must put on your list.

Cossies Beach

Located far to the northeast of mainland Australia in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, this beach is widely-known as the best in all of Australia. Featuring palm trees and coconuts, this tropical paradise is an absolute must-visit.

Mindil Beach

Mindil Beach is one of two on the list that are located in close proximity to Darwin, the NT’s capital. Mindil is a great option for people-watching, bathing, and as a shopping spot. In fact, the city hosts a seasonal market here throughout the summer where crafters sell their products.

Casuarina Beach

Located a little farther from Darwin than Mindil is Casuarina Beach, which is located where a small creek meets the ocean. This is a great place to run or do sports, and if you stay until the evening, you’ll see one of Australia’s most beautiful sunsets.
