Australia Off The Beaten Path: 423 reviews and 697 photos


What Australia has, as any tourist will tell you, is beaches. Unfortunately, most tourists get to see only a couple of the well known ones (like Bondi) which are mostly average for us Australians who were raised doing surfing as a sport.
If you like beaches it really does pay to go in off the highway and check out areas like Forster, Terrigal, Yamba, South West Rocks et al. For an overseas tourist, it doesn't get any better than places like Port Stephens.
This shot is taken at the next beach south of Terrigal, Avoca, on a moody afternoon.
