It’s the perfect spot for diving, snorkelling, swimming, and kayaking.

This place is an archeologist’s paradise; a pre-historic landscape dotted by ancient settlements, cave paintings, and 25 million year old fossils.

And if you just want to lounge around on the beach you will want to head to the sunshine coast. These beaches are the perfect spot for a leisurely swim or an excellent surf session.
