I haven’t been all over Australia, yet. But I’m pretty confident South Coast NSW has some of the best beaches in the country.
We recently spent three weeks in the South Coast NSW region, and I came to the conclusion that the beaches there are better than the North Coast NSW beaches.
They are not only stunningly beautiful, but there is much less development than in the north, and WAY LESS people. Win-win!
On some of the beaches featured below, particularly the ones in Booderee National Park, we practically had the whole beach to ourselves. Give me uncrowded, natural, pristine looking beaches any day!
And I have never seen so many wild kangaroos jumping around on the beaches than in the South Coast. Plus, the white powdery sand and striking rock formations are up there with the best I have seen anywhere in the world.
