Of all the tourist trails that are well worn within Australia, the trek up the East Coast from Sydney further north is the most common. The East Coast of Australia is most well-known for its magnificent beaches, and these are the main reason that people spend so much time sticking to the coastline. Once you’ve had your fill of the big city and have danced the night away in most of the Sydney bars, it’s time to make the trip up north, and what better way to do it than to jump from beach to beach, taking in the beauty as you go? Here, we tell you the best five beaches along the East Coast to use as bases for your journey north.
Just north of Sydney on the Central Coast lies beautiful Avoca Beach. The Central Coast has the rich blue waters and white sands of Sydney without the crowds or the business—and with better waves! Avoca Beach is a popular holiday spot for Sydney-siders, and once you’re set up on its fine sand, looking out at the surf and watching the dolphins play in the waves, you’ll be inclined to agree!
Next stop along in Boomerang Beach, just near Forster on the mid-North coast. Boomerang Beach is one of the most impressive in Australia, and its remote setting makes it as idyllic as any deserted island. The length of the beach is uninterrupted by people, and although you might see the odd fisherman, you’re more likely to encounter a passing whale. Great for surfing and sun-baking alike, Boomerang Beach is the stop you’ll make that entices you to stay forever.
Next, stop in Port Macquarie and check out the surf at Flynn’s Beach. Fynn’s Beach is the most popular beach in the town of Port Macquarie, and what’s more, Port Macquarie accommodation is reasonably-priced and usually within walking distance of the beach. It’s a great stopover and provides an easy way to break up the big drive north.
You can’t pass the signs for Byron Bay without turning in, and once you do you’ll want to stay forever. Byron Bay is a beautiful beachside town with a hippy population with lush rainforest surrounds. Try some local organic coffee and then head out for a surf with the dolphins. Ahh, bliss.
Maroochydore is one of the best beaches on Australia’s beautiful Sunshine Coast, a haven for surfy types who prefer the laid-back life. Maroochydore Beach boasts pristine sand, clear water, clean waves and an enviable way of life. Grab a board and take a surf lesson or simply plant yourself on the sand and stare out at the great blue beyond—here is a beach you can lose yourself on.
Australia is (deservedly) famous for its beaches. Incorporate them into your travels and experience the joys of the smaller, less well-known stretches of sand. You’ll be glad you did.

The beautiful South Pacific. Whether you’re planning a Fiji holiday or a fishing expedition off the Cook Islands, there’s something truly enchanting about this incredibly stretch of ocean and islands. With so much to see and do, (and so many sunsets to witness) fitting it all in can be a mission. Here, we share four experiences that most encapsulate the spirit and vibe of the tropical paradise that awaits you.
Many nations of the South Pacific are unique in that although they follow contemporary systems of parliament, many of the more rural areas still adhere to traditional customs, such as having a tribal structure. Tonga is one such place. Tonga is a kingdom, with a functioning royal family, and smaller villages are organised through a tribal structure. The chief of a Tongan village is still afforded much respect and plays a real role in its governance, which means that visiting a Tongan village can be an incredible cultural and educational experience. Tonga earned the nickname of ‘The Friendly Isles’ when Captain James Cook first explored the islands and received a hearty welcome. This nickname still rings true, with families and villagers only too happy to welcome visitors into their world. Share a meal with locals and learn about the customs and traditions of that region—you’ll never forget the experience.
Samoan Rugby Match
For some contemporary Pacific Islands culture, try to take in a rugby match in Samoa. A love of football has long swept the island, both in regards to American Football (American Samoa) and the more popular Rugby. Samoans not only have a raging passion for the sport, but the body mass and skills to make them formidable players. Many Samoan players are signed to Australian and New Zealand rugby teams, but the national team doesn’t do too badly either! Get swept up in the passion and watch the traditional battle dance before the match commences (this is much like the Maori ‘Haka’).
Fishing off the Cook Islands
Ethnically Maori, the people of the Cook Islands have a love affair with the sea that stretches back millennia. The relatively unspoiled islands that make up the Cook Islands are perched amid some of the best fishing spots anywhere in the world, which means a fishing tour with a local is almost certain to yield fruit. Cook your fish in the sand in a traditional Hangi once you return, and relish the taste of fresh seafood eaten the way nature intended it.
Snorkeling in Fiji
The waters around the Fijian islands are teeming with life, and if you fancy a look at some truly beautiful coral reefs and underwater eco-systems, there are few places better than Fiji in which to do it. Swim alongside sea turtles and see if you can find Nemo—but remember to bring that underwater camera!
Weather you’re testing the waters on a Fiji cruise or simply island hopping through the South Pacific, there are activities and sights everywhere that’ll make it incredibly hard to leave.

For most travellers, Australia represents an exciting new world of stunning natural scenery, epic beaches and a friendly, laidback culture. For many, this local culture includes a great attitude towards having a good time, and whether you’re hitting up the Sydney bars or sipping a cocktail by the pool in the Whitsundays, there is no shortage of opportunities to let your hair down. Like any large country with a diverse population, the options in terms of entertainment in Australia are almost limitless. Here, we outline a few party tips and tricks for having a good time in Oz—whatever you’re into!
Dancing the Night Away
If nightclubs are more your scene and your idea of a good night is one that goes on well into the next morning, then Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast are probably your best bets. There is a vibrant clubbing culture in these cities, and while other major cities like Melbourne and Adelaide do have a range nightclubs to choose from, the focus of the population (and therefore the establishments) is slightly more on pubs and bars. Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley and Sydney’s Kings Cross are both great locations if you’re looking for a heavy density of electronic music and sweaty, dancing ravers, so strap on a pair of comfortable shoes and get that booty shakin’!
If a covers band or acoustic guitarist is your idea of a night’s entertainment, then look no further than Melbourne for a night on the town. Melbourne’s licensing laws and general artistic culture have ushered in a very distinct kind of bar—intimate, loungy and with a very laid back vibe, the typical Melbourne nightspot will feature live music and a pub-like atmosphere. Some of Australia’s best artists get their breaks on the Melbourne pub circuit, so it’s well-worth checking out the scene and soaking up the creativity.
One thing Australia does exceptionally well is the country pub. In many a rural town across the country the local pub is not only the central meeting place for locals, but the beating heart of the entertainment scene. Many country pubs are moving into the food scene, and with Australia producing some of the best fresh food and wine, a meal at the pub is not longer about chicken schnitzel or a roast---this is quality food served with country charm.
