If like us, you cannot wait for summer to arrive and love to head to the beach, we have chosen our top picks for the best beaches to visit in spring.
Monkey Mia Beach
Monkey Mia, Western Australia, 6537
Monkey Mia is one of Western Australia's most famous dolphin watching destinations.
This calm bay is world famous for the pod of friendly dolphins that visit the shore most days to be hand fed. Located 25 kilometres from the town of Denham in the Shark Bay World Heritage area, Monkey Mia offers a unique chance to explore the serene shore side by side with nature’s gifts.
Northern Beaches, New South Wales
Found just over an hour’s drive from the centre of Sydney, Palm Beach is home to the city’s most northerly stretch of sand. Sweeping south from Barrenjoey Head, the beach’s golden sands and sparkling blue waters are ideal for relaxing, strolling, swimming and surfing.
The northern section of Palm Beach boasts great surfing conditions, while the southern end of the beach offers a protected environment for swimming. It houses a 35m ocean pool ideal for laps or paddling with children in the shallow end.
Bronte Beach, New South Wales
Bronte is located approximately a 20 minute drive from Sydney in the Eastern Suburbs. Bronte Rock Pool would definitely be the most popular part of Bronte Beach perfect for swimmers alike, sheltered from surfing waves and always at an inviting temperature.
Village Road Jervis Bay, New South Wales
Jervis Bay is spectacular with the lack of crowds and pristine natural environment. Walk a little further around, and in your exploration you’ll discover a place called Scottish Rocks.These amazing rock formations hugged the cliff and jutted out into the bay. Discover new coves and inlets, salt forms collecting on the rocks- a true paradise.
A short trek through the bush and you’ll run out onto the beautiful and breathtaking Rainbow Beach. This little beach town on the Cooloola Coast, north of the Sunshine Coast, is the gateway to Fraser Island. But there’s so much more to Rainbow Beach than its island neighbour. Head to the infamous Carlo Sandblow—if you’ve seen a photo of a giant sand dune in Queensland, this is probably it! Four-legged friends are welcome to tag along!
Kewarra Beach, Cairns
Kewarra is at the southern end of a large stretch of sand that takes in Palm Cove, Clifton Beach, and itself, Kewarra Beach. It is completely protected from the southeasterly swell by a rocky headland, and a large shallow sandbank fills most of the bay. However, the water is still deep enough for a swim and it a very good place to bring a young family. The beach is peaceful and avoids the tourist crowd, making it the secret of the locals.
