Tis the sea-sun for beach holidays

When the east coast of Australia is made up of over 50,000km of golden beaches (10,000 of them to be precise), you’d be right to use the words ‘spoilt for choice’ in deciding where to take your next beach vacation.

It’s not just the quantity of beaches that’s in abundance, the quality is there too, especially when you’ve got Mick Fanning-approved surf breaks and dive sites that attract international attention.

To make sure your summer is filled with sun, surf and sand, we’ve rounded up our picks for the perfect beach holiday, which cut down the commute from your cabin, campsite or caravan to your cabana on the sand.

Ingenia Holidays White Albatross

If you’re looking for more beach-bang for your buck, set your sights on New South Wales’ north coast, whose 700km of beaches offer plenty of space to throw down a towel. Smack bang in the middle of the coastline you’ll find Ingenia Holidays White Albatross, in the quaint town of Nambucca Heads. From White Albatross, there’s no shortage of places to escape the summer heat - whether it’s a dip in the Pacific Ocean, the Nambucca River or a walk through the Gordon Park Rainforest - all within little legs’ reach of your cabin, caravan or campsite.

BIG4 Ingenia Holidays Bonny Hills

For a bonny break, book yourself into BIG4 Ingenia Holidays Bonny Hills, a short 20-minute drive from Port Macquarie. The township of Bonny Hills might be small, with only a service station, local tavern, post office and a fire station, but its beach proves why good things come in small packages. When the family grows weary of sandcastles, seashell fossicking and sand-angels, you can retreat to the onsite swimming pool, splash park, mini-golf course, jumping cushion, pedal karts, table tennis and BBQ facilities at this holiday-HQ.

Ingenia Holidays Kingscliff

The only time you’ll hear the word ‘board’ during your stay at Ingenia Holidays Kingscliff will be in reference to the surf action on the Tweed Coast. Seriously, Kingscliff is the home of world-class beach breaks, the kind that lures international surfers and spectators to its very shores for the Australian Longboard Open each year. Check into the 10-acres of Ingenia Holidays Kingscliff, for prime access to The Tweed’s beaches and river. Choose between camping, caravan and cabin accommodation - to base your northern New South Wales adventure. You’ll only be 2.5km out of town, so you can make the most of the dining scene on Marine Parade and Bells Boulevard.

Ingenia Holidays One Mile Beach

If you’re looking for beach action, Ingenia Holidays One Mile Beach promises not just one beach, but 26 on its park’s doorstep. When you’re not trying a new beach every day, you can get outdoors with other big nature activities like whale watching, diving, snorkelling and fishing. Back at home base, you’ll find a resort-style swimming pool, waterslide and kids club, which explains why so many parents prescribe Ingenia Holidays One Mile Beach for a dose of vitamin ‘sea’.

Ingenia Holidays Byron Bay

The most eastern point of Australia does not disappoint when it comes to the beach action, and Ingenia Holidays Byron Bay is the ultimate jumping-off point for discovering it. Set on 28 acres of parklands, you’ll be checking into Byron Bay’s largest accommodation provider, with 155 campsites and 52 cabins, all within five minutes of the Byron CBD. With a climate that ranges from 18°C in the winter to 26°C in the summer, it’s safe to say swimmers should be packed all year round. The beach views at eye-level are one thing, but taking the walk up to Cape Byron is another, with panoramic views over Byron’s famous beaches and hinterland to the west.
