Top Secret Beaches in Australia You’ve Never Heard Before
Most Australians have their own best-loved beaches, and their favorites are usually the ones that aren’t filled with tourists. Australia has more than 50,000km of coastline to offer, the reason why there’s no shortage of places to enjoy Australia at its best.
If you’re looking for stunning spots, you better read this compiled list of some of the breathtaking beaches that until now have been keeping a low profile.
CURRARONG BEACH, NSW
This calm and quiet fishing village of Currarong is just about 20 kilometres south of Nowra, where you will find one news service, one general store, one caravan park, and 14 pristine beaches. The Currarong Beach has clear calm waters for paddle boarding and swimming, plus kayaking at the Currarong Creek located at the southern end.
Also, you may want to do the Wreck Walk to see the vintage hulk of the SS Merimbula at the Whale Point. We suggest that you take your dive gear with you if you wish to see what remains of it underwater.
MAITLAND BAY BEACH, BOUDDI
This lovely bay is relaxing, secluded and suitable for families. Maitland is located in Bouddi National Park, 20km southeast of Gosford. You can do a 20-minute walk from the Maitland Bay information centre on Maitland Bay Drive, downhill through the eucalypt forest. You can take your family with you to chill out on the sand and enjoy a picnic but don’t forget to conserve some energy because it’s a steep slog on the way back up.
AGNES WATER, THE DISCOVERY COAST, QUEENSLAND
Just 23 miles from the Great Barrier Reef, Agnes Waters boasts every factor of beach life you could ever want for, as the friendly local community is happy to tell you. Plus it would be a great road trip with your family from Brisbane to Cairns.
The Agnes Water is famous for swimmers, surfers, divers, sailors, and it’s good for fishing and mud crabbing too. It’s a great place for the family and kids since they have a surf life-saver on duty every day.
KITTY MILLER BEACH, PHILLIP ISLAND, VICTORIA
This beach wins highly on climate because of its rocky volcanic landscape and a shipwreck called the SS Speke, stranded on the rocks since 1906 and can still be clearly seen at low tide.
Kitty Miller is a 90-minute drive from Melbourne, this south-facing, horseshoe-shaped beach is undoubtedly stunning. However, the riptides mean that it’s recommended for walking than swimming, although the high tide makes good waves for surfers.
TOOWOON BAY, NSW
This Australian suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales is located on a peninsula between Tuggerah Lake and the Pacific Ocean south of The Entrance. You’ll find plenty of Toowoon Bay beach resorts, accommodation options, including a beachside rainforest retreat, camping and caravanning in a holiday park.
If the family is looking for a relaxing activity, you should try recreational fishing which is popular there. You may cast a line from a beach for bream and whiting, and its rocky reefs attract blackfish and mulloway.
DREAMTIME BEACH, NSW
It’s truly a dream time if you would visit this place! Twenty million years ago, Mount Warning erupted, producing today’s dramatic backdrop of black cliffs and rare formation such as the Giant’s Causeway out in the bay.
Dreamtime beach has a blend of stretches of white sand and lush green foliage, which is super close to paradise. They also have wide accommodation options, from Kingscliff caravan parks to luxury holiday rentals.
GOLDEN BEACH, QUEENSLAND
The Golden Beach is one of the charming spots along Ninety Mile Beach, near Sale, 252km from Melbourne. People love this secret gem because you’ll be able to find a spot to yourself anywhere along Ninety Mile Beach, but Golden Beach scores more for its great ocean fishing, surfing, and wildlife.
If you love animals, be ready to see a lot of native birds, kangaroos, and even echidnas and emus.
