Australia Beaches


As you’d expect with over 22,000 miles of sun drenched coastline Australia boasts some wonderful beaches from buzzing city strands, to untouched stretches of poweder white sand and everything in between.

Some beaches are so gorgeous that you may consider travelling half way round the world for a pure Australia beach holiday but in our opinion you’d be mad to miss the rest the country has to offer.

Luckily the beauty of Trailfinders tailormade approach is that you can add a stay in any beach resort to any holiday you please. Many of our Australia fly drives and escorted tours include some time on the beach as part of your holiday but don't feel you're limited to those choices alone. Whichever Australian beach takes your fancy we can organise the transport to get you there and a great value place to stay while you relax in the sun.

Below we have highlighted some of Australia's best regions to enjoy some time on the beach. If you are looking for some more inspiration take a look at this great blog put together by Thom Kernott in our Cambridge Travel Centre.
