As a general rule, Australia is known for being quite a wild destination. So popular has it become with travellers, however, that nowadays you need to look a little harder to find the spots where you can experience real escapism. Spots a bit like these…
Bremer Bay, WA
Around five hours south-east of Perth is Bremer Bay, a little known coastal town of astounding beauty. Its beach has surprisingly stayed off the travel-radar, so arrive here and you’ll immediately feel like you’re one of the locals, rather than a band of tourists. With only around 300 residents, you’ll bask in the fact that actually, there’s not much to do here other than adopt a beachy lifestyle and ignore the rest of the world.
Caves Beach, NSW
There’s no denying it, New South Wales has some truly amazing beach offerings, making it a very competitive market when it comes to pin pointing a favourite. Caves Beach, however, is definitely up there, simply because it’s lesser-known and entirely laid back. Come along with a picnic and relax as you watch the tides come in and out, revealing a network of caves as they do.
Bay of Fires, TAS
Tasmania’s Bay of Fires has been lauded as one of the most beautiful destinations on earth, and we couldn’t agree more. Located along Tasmania’s east coast, here you’ll find long stretches of perfect white sands and astoundingly clear water. The best bit? You’ll revel in the sense of being the only person that knows it exists.
