Islands & Oceans

Australia’s spectacular coastline extends for an epic 59,736km – the same distance you’d cover if you flew from Sydney to Los Angeles five times!

Add 8000 islands and it’s no surprise that the beaches here are the best in the world. From compact Rottnest Island in the Indian Ocean to Hamilton Island in the Coral Sea, it’s fair to say that we’re spoilt for choice.

Offshore, the Great Barrier Reef and Ningaloo Reef are true wonders of the ocean – immersing yourself in these astonishing underwater realms is simply unforgettable.

Just an amazing day at one of Australia's most beautiful locations while being entertained by the awesome tour guides.

Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration

When Night Falls

Stay comfortable and content amid the wonderful and sometimes harsh Australian wilderness with this lineup of the country’s best overnight stays.

The real-life aquaman

Whitsundays-based marine biologist Johnny Gaskell spends his days diving, researching and advocating for protection of the world’s largest coral reef system – the Great Barrier Reef. We took a deep dive into his passion for the ocean, from coral restoration to his fan boy feelings for whip coral shrimp, and why life is better under the sea.

Breaking New Ground

Recently cited by Gourmet Traveller as ‘Margaret River’s most influential chef’, Evan Hayter traded the bright lights of a Michelin-starred international restaurant career for a tiny winery restaurant in Margaret River. We chewed the fat with him over how he’s blazing a trail when it comes to sustainability; and not just because it’s trending on Instagram.
