In terms of beaches Australia is teeming with them from north to south along both the eastern and western coastlines of this massive continent. We have beaches on the Pacific Ocean, the Southern Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Timor Sea in the far north. So where are the most pristine beaches in Australia?
State by state the beaches have their own uniqueness, with different colours and textures of sand, the sea water a palette of blues and greens and beautiful tranquil calm waters in little bays or big swells with thunderous waves lashing on the shores.
Queensland on the north eastern coast has some of the most beautiful beaches stretching from Cape Tribulation in the Tropical North to Coolangatta beach in the south. There are also hundreds of tropical islands just off the coast of Queensland that have soft white sand beaches and crystal clear water which are fringed by coral reefs.
New South Wales long stretch of coastline offers spectacular coastal scenery from the North Coast to the South Coast. It is home to many of Australia’s most famous beaches on the blue Pacific with great surf and sparkling sand.
Victoria is the quintessential family seaside holiday destination of a bygone era with the ever-elegant beaches at Sorrento, Portsea and the beaches on the Bellarine Peninsula and Mornington Peninsula. Then there is the incredible beauty of the coastline along the Great Ocean Road dotted with some of the best surfing beaches in Australia.
Tasmania’s East Coast, with its natural beauty, spectacular landscapes and long beautiful beaches, offers a completely different Australian coastal experience. Wineglass Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula, Bay of Fires, Bruny Island or the Tasman Peninsula are just a few areas where you will find some of the most pristine beaches in Tasmania.
South Australia has some of the most rugged coastline in Australia with pristine beaches that are virtually untouched. The 60 kilometre stretch of beachfront surrounding the capital, Adelaide also has some stunning beaches.
West Australia is a vast state of relatively untouched coastline and wilderness areas. Some of the most beautiful beaches are found in the South West of the state and then the North West takes on a different vista of wild rocky coastline and sandy bays.
Although I have travelled all the way around the coastline of this vast country, it would be impossible to visit each and every beach on our shorelines. However I can categorically state that I have seen and photographed some of the most pristine beaches in Australia. The problem is that most of my choices do entail getting off the beaten track a little and I doubt whether you have even heard of some of them!
Here is my collection of the top ten most pristine beaches in Australia:
I think I could probably list at least 20 more pristine beaches in Australia. There are just so many! How about you? Do you have some favourite beaches in Australia? I would love to hear about them.
