Top 10 Beaches in Australia

The warmer months may be drawing to an end in Australia though there's no need to stop lusting after our incredible beaches, even if it is from a distance...

World-renowned for their beauty, water clarity and surf; selecting a Top 10 was a tall order though these were the crowd-winners and in no particular order...

#10 - Tamarama AKA Glam-a-rama, NSW 

Perhaps not the most well known in Sydney, though Tamarama is absolutely the local-favourite. Located just around the cliffs from Bondi, this pearl in Sydney's east is where the only thing competing for your attention are the perfect conditions and bronzed babes.

#7 Cable Beach, WA

However you get there, just get there. On a camel, in a 4WD or simply with your own two feet, this beach is 22-kilometres of sheer beauty; sun-kissed white sand and turquoise water set against rich red cliffs and spectacular sunsets only a short drive from Broome.

#6 The Pass, NSW 

Seemingly never-ending waves, friendly locals and achingly beautiful surrounds is where you'll find The Pass in Byron Bay, Northern NSW. Grab a long board and join in the fun on these rolling waves and hang ten with the best of them or simply soak up the National Park all around.

#5 Whitehaven Beach, QLD 

The country's most photographed beach and for good reason. As white as sand gets, as blue as any sky is and as picturesque as a place can be. Need we say more?
