Once known as Golden Beach, you’ll get to enjoy a lazy walk on the beach or an early morning tea. The not-so-crowded beach is an ideal setting for a romantic picnic and a dip in the saltwater. A quick hike up the Noosa National Park will give the best views of the Sunshine Coast.

Get the chance to meet koalas, Wallum froglets and other animals in their natural habitat while at the park.

Turquoise Bay

If you’re looking for sparkling white sand and crystal-clear waters, then Turquoise Bay is for you! Swim in its calm waters or snorkel in its safe and shallow waters. Swim with Manta Rays, turtles, dolphins and other marine species along the colourful coral reefs.

Whitehaven Beach

Whitehaven Beach earned its spot thanks to its pristine white sand that stretches up to seven kilometres off Whitsunday Island. If you love snorkelling, then the crystal-clear water would mesmerise you to dive right into the waters.

It’s no wonder why this beach is one of the most Instagram-worthy beaches in Australia.
