From Four Mile To Noosa, Here’s ‘Straya’s Top 10 Beaches As Voted By Y’all

Australia may be the motherland for some visually displeasing specimens – namely Southern Cross tattoos, fluorescent Trigger Bros tracksuits and Warwick Cappa – but there’s no denying our sea-girt shores are some of the best in the world.
TripAdvisor has smanged together info from accommodation average nightly rates and recommendations from all of you travellers to rate the top ten beaches our fair country has to offer.
10. Four Mile Beach, Port Douglas, QLD.

Far North Queensland is a balmy dream, and Four Mile Beach knows how to turn it on.
9. Noosa Main Beach, Noosa, QLD.
Noooooosah, darling. Home to many a bejewelled Camilla kaftan.
8. Cable Beach, Broome, WA.

The backdrop of red ochre cliffs sets Cable Beach apart from the rest. You can take a camel ride along the 22km stretch of white sand, too.
7. Burleigh Heads Beach, Gold Coast, QLD.

Nearby Burleigh Heads National Park has plenty of walking trails offering gobsmacking views across the sea.
6. Mooloolaba Beach, Mooloolaba, QLD.

Sapphire waters and low waves make this one of Queensland’s safest and most beautiful spots.
5. Shelly Beach, Sydney, NSW.

Forming part of Cabbage Tree Bay, Shelly Beach is a protected marine reserve popular with dolphins. 
4. Turquoise Bay, Exmouth, WA.

The name does this one justice. It’s a popular spot for snorkelling, only a few metres from Ningaloo Reef.
3. Surfer’s Paradise Beach, Gold Coast, QLD.

Indisputably voted onto the list by Toolies
2. Manly Beach, Sydney, NSW.

It’s so damn expensive to live on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Manly being so damn appealing is probably why.
1. Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island, QLD.
Seven kilometres of crystal clear waters and soft, white sand have placed this iconic Australian location in the number one spot two years in a row. If there was any picturesque spot worthy of an Instagram post, this one would be it.
