Sydney’s Manly Beach named Australia’s best by TripAdvisor

Manly Beach voted Australia's best beach.

Manly Beach has been named the number one beach in Australia in TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice awards for Beaches for a second consecutive year.

Out of Australia’s top 10 beaches, half are in Queensland whilst New South Wales and Western Australia draw a tie at two beaches each. Mindil Beach in Darwin, Northern Territory rounds up the top 10.

“Australians love the sun and the surf, and every beach on this year’s list has something for everyone—from sunbathing to sunset walks, swimming, surfing, and even camel trains,” said Janice Lee Fang, communications director for TripAdvisor in Asia Pacific.

Award winners were determined based on the quantity and quality of traveller reviews and ratings for beaches on TripAdvisor, gathered over a 12-month period.
