Australia beaches aren’t just locales, they’re a lifestyle. From the endless arcs of Byron Bay to the quirky wilderness of Ningaloo reef, the beaches and reefs of this diverse continent shape its very culture. Spectacular surfs, jaw-dropping wildlife and enough sun, sand and salty sea to satiate any beach junkie, Australia holidays are all about the epic coastlines, and with a Contiki tour you can breathe it all in without missing a beat.
When considering beach holidays in Australia, the only question is, where to start? How about on the famed East Coast, where the beaches are renowned for being some of the world’s greatest? You can start in Cairns, surrounded by lazy palm trees and sensational scuba opportunities, before making your way to the aptly named sunshine coast. Surf’s up? Head to Byron Bay and immerse yourself in the culture, hitting the waves during the day and cracking open a cold one in the evening while soaking up the chilled-out vibes this ocean town has to offer.
And then there’s the wildlife. Where better to look than the Great Barrier Reef, one of the wonders of the world? Australia nature is famed for a scope, and here is the best place to view it in all of its glory. In the reef, adventures are never far away – dive, snorkel and more amongst 1,500 species of fish and 134 species of sharks and rays, explore 3000 individual reef systems and hundreds of picturesque tropical islands before you realise how sheer numbers can’t do this place justice. Only seeing the eye-popping colours for yourself will do.
