The Best Beach Carts in Australia

  • All Ages

If you're sick of (beach) carting everything but the kitchen sink with you every time you go to the beach, then it's high time you grabbed yourself a cool new set of beach wheels. No, we're not talking about a convertible, we're talking about the ultimate beach accessory, the beach cart. 

Beach carts in Australia are practically mandatory for all families who are often spotted on the sand keeled over carrying beach toys, towels, changes of clothes, beach snacks, water bottles, boogie boards, beach chairs, Cool Cabanas, and the list goes on! Make your slog across the sand a breeze by arming yourself with a well-kitted beach cart.

For $149, this trolley comes in six on-trend fabrics to choose from, (we love the blue Hamptons stripes) and is on the money when it comes to easy collapsible convenience so you can fold or unfold your beach wagon whenever you need to.

Made to withstand even the harshest UV rays by a world-class brand, we salute you, Vuly!
