Australian beaches rate amongst some of the best in the world. In Queensland, the Sunshine State, there are an abundance of sun-drenched, golden sandy, azure blue water and pristine beaches in the place I used to call home.

Starting with the Gold Coast here are some of Queensland’s finest beaches:

    I love the Broadwater on the Gold Coast – I really hope they don’t build a cruise terminal there …

      I doubt whether the Gold Coast community will allow that Cruise Ship Terminal to go ahead. It is a beautiful part of the Gold Coast and I love going out in our boat onto the Broadwater occasionally (but not fishing!)

    You really know how to showcase Australia Kathy. I’m amazed you haven’t been poached by the Australian Tourism Board :)

      I’m amazed too Pinky! I think they should snap me up stat! Thank you for the compliment – I really appreciate your positive feedback. :)

    I love how they are all different, extraordinary. Makes me think I want to put on my bathers for just a fleeting second. Let’s face it I regret to say I am allergic to the beach. Our locals are a pain to park at x

      Yes our beaches have limited parking as well. Very fortunately I live 250m to Burleigh Beach so I can just walk there. I really do have an affinity with our beautiful beaches – it changes my mood as soon as I see the lovely blue sea.

    Each beach beautiful in its own way :)

    WOW! I have to say, these sure trump any beaches we have here in the US! And you’ve taken me on a lovely mini vacation this morning, thank you! (It’s 20 degrees here in NYC!;-)

      Thank you Jess. You should put Australia and in particular, Queensland, on your travel bucket list. You won’t be disappointed! I am coming to your beautiful city in May and I’m looking forward to some cooler temperatures. Thank you for dropping by my blog. :

    So many beautiful beaches! I’ve only been to Cairns and Green Island but would love to visit the Whitsundays.

    • Kathy

      The Whitsunday Island have incredible snow white sandy beaches and the clearest water you will see anywhere in the world. It is also on the Great Barrier Reef and full of coral and marine life. You will have to come and visit again someday.:)

    They’re all gorgeous. I was in Cairns in 1980, and spent a lot of time on the beach. Like Michele, I’d like to go to the Whitsundays.

      The Whitsundays are picture perfect. Whitehaven Beach is up there with one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I hope you get to visit someday. Thank you for re-posting this blog on Facebook. I am very grateful. :)

    Wow, lovely beaches. I am going to Straddie Island next two weeks from Penang, Malaysia. Hope can stands with the winter there.

      Australia does have some of the most spectacular white sandy pristine beaches in the world. You will love Straddie Island. I have camped there with my family many times as it is not very far from where I live on the Gold Coast. The temperature is very mild at the moment. During the day it is in the mid 20 degrees, so not very Wintery really.

    So many beautiful options all across Queensland, North Straddie and the Burleigh beach and headlands are a personal favourite.

    • Kathy

      There are many wonderful and magical beaches that are very close to where I live on the Gold Coast. I would have to agree that North Straddie and Burleigh Heads beaches are amazing. We are so blessed to live in Queensland. :)
