The Aussie Winners
The beautiful Whitehaven Beach is a national treasure, complete with incredibly white sand. Situated at the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and protected by the Whitsunday Islands National Park, it's a beach that is certainly no stranger to awards, stretching for seven kilometres and surrounded by swirls of turquoise, blue, and green water. Easily accessible from Hamilton Island in 30 minutes on a high-speed catamaran, Whitehaven Beach is an absolute Aussie must-visit.
Hyams Beach, ensconced in the Jervis Bay region of the South Coast of NSW is home to similarly picturesque turquoise waters juxtaposed against soft bright white sands. This idyllic holiday destination is home to plenty of native wildlife, a small-town community vibe, and of course, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
