Australian Beaches
On the Pacific and Indian Oceans

There are hundreds of Australian Beaches around such a big country that is also a continent. Some are very famous and crowded and some are off the beaten path and isolated.

One thing they have in common, golden sands and crystal clear waters. We are going to present here some of the most famous of them in no particular order to avoid the discussion of which is better than the other. In my opinion they are all gorgeous.
