Have you thought about the East Coast of Australia? If not, then consider Fraser Island, the Whitsundays or the Gold Coast.
Fraser Island – largest sand island in the world
Definitely worth a visit. You get to drive on the Sandy highway, you can go up in a plane to see whales and the sand drifts, swim in a fresh water lake, explore a rainforest. Get on a tour rather than drive yourself because you need a 4WD and if you get stuck, it costs at least $150 just to get the tow truck to turn on its engine!
Sailing through the Whitsunday Islands is heaven. Make sure to visit Whitehaven beach (one of the top 10 beaches in the wold) where it can’t be built on! The sand squeaks it is so fine, and the white against the turquoise waters is stunning.
We recommend a 2 or 3 day Sailing boat trip around the islands. You sleep on board, there is a captain but you help with meals. A great way to meet people but make sure to bring gravol if you get sea sick!
Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast
If you are looking for a place to chill out on the beach and no do alot, then the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast is the place to be. YOu can explore many National parks and learn how to surf, but many people just relax, take in the suns rays, do a bit of shopping, and eat nice food.
