Australia Tourist Attractions
With around 50000 kilometres of spectacular coastline, complete with islands, stunning beaches, fringing reefs and long meandering drives, you'll find millions of places to explore around our island continent.
Whether you want to surf the waves, dive the reefs or relax on pristine beaches, Australia has a beach to match any holiday.
Completely surrounded by water and rich in islands and reefs, Australia is a diver's dream. Our waters shelter a treasure trove of marine life, with more than 4000 species of fish and the world's highest diversity of sea grass.
Australia's surf beaches, where first-class waves for all surfing abilities crash, are born from the Pacific Ocean in the east, the Indian Ocean in the west and the Southern Ocean in the south. You'll find a wave to yourself on our uncrowded and pristine coastal beaches.
