Beaches and Islands

Australia has many of the world’s most iconic island, beach and coastal destinations. Whether it be some of the country's best-known landmarks such as the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Sydney Harbour in New South Wales or Tasman National Park in Tasmania.

Australia's vast coastline plays an important role in defining the character of the country - beaches, islands, ocean lagoons and colourful reefs underpin the Australian way of life. Australia offers two of the world's greatest coral reefs, a variety of world-class fishings options, renowned island resorts and a year-round temperate climate which lends itself to outdoor sports, aquatic and coastal activities.
