In the open ocean or just off the coast, Australia is home to some of the world’s most enviable island experiences.
Australia is surrounded by stunning islands. Luxurious, adventurous, rugged or remote - there’s an island suited to every paradise seeker.
Near Perth Rottnest Island, just a short ferry ride away, has one tiny attraction you can’t see anywhere else. The quokka, a pint-sized marsupial, is known for its friendly nature, which is why photographers love to snap their picture.
The Keeling Islands. This idyllic Indian Ocean outpost of 27 islands boasts dazzling white-sand beaches, world-class diving and a unique cultural blend – yet it receives only a handful of visitors each year, perhaps due to its remote location off Australia’s west coast.
Kangaroo Island, 13 kilometres off the coast of South Australia, has everything you need for a unique adventure. Wildlife, natural attractions, gourmet produce and delicious spirits all make an appearance.
The Whitsunday Islands, located in Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef, boast some of the country’s most beautiful nature. There are 74 islands in the Whitsundays, but only some offer the chance to stay amid the azure waters and white sand.
Magnetic Island is just 25 minutes on a ferry from Townsville. Although the island is a part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, it’s rocky landscape dotted with boulders makes it beautifully unique.
Lizard Island rests within the blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef, so it’s no surprise that a trip here is all about reef and relaxation.
