Most of Australia is completely inaccessible by car or plane which leaves helicopters or marine craft, but that’s great news if you happen to own a helicopter or marine craft! Torrens Luxury Collection has cruised to some of the most secluded and private luxury beaches Australia has to offer, now it’s time to share!
Langford Island, Queensland
Langford Island, near Hayman Island in the northern Whitsundays is a popular spot with sailors, divers and snorkellers. Many of the bareboats and crewed sailing boats will anchor near Langford Island. Langford Island is relatively small, but features a long sand spit that all but disappears at high tide. This is an excellent spot for a picnic, sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling.
The best diving is found on the north-western end of the beach where scattered bommies offer an interesting maze to explore and there are a few shallow walls at the eastern end of the island. The majority of fish life is small, but abundant. Expect reasonable protection from all but the strongest wind conditions and moderate tidal currents at all but slack tides. Snorkellers will enjoy the ability to snorkel straight off the length of the beach, with the best areas to explore being closest to the island.
Childers Cove, Victoria
You’ll find this beauty on Victoria’s treacherous Shipwreck Coast, but don’t let that put you off. Childers Cove is protected by limestone stacks — the rock formations for which the Great Ocean Road is famous (we’re looking at you, 12 Apostles). The 100m stretch of beach, just east of Warrnambool, is sublime in summer, but keep your eyes on the tide.
Vlasoff Cay, Queensland
Vlasoff Cay is a Tropical North Queensland bucket-list attraction just north of Green Island. It is a picturesque sand bar on Vlasoff Reef, an outer reef of the Great Barrier Reef.
A little patch of the Maldives in Far North Queensland, Vlasoff Cay is a kind of James Bond-meets-Castaway island fantasy. Only it’s real and you really do arrive like a secret agent — dropping in by helicopter on your own private smear of sand in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef. Vlasoff is one of a handful of photogenic cays found off Cairns.
Refuge Cove, Victoria
Cove is a stunning, secluded beach on the eastern side of the Wilsons Promontory accessible by walking track from Sealers Cove to the north or Little Waterloo Bay to the south. Refuge Cove Camping Area is located at the southern end of the cove surrounded by lush vegetation and close to the sea. The best beaches are often the most difficult to reach. That’s certainly the case with Refuge Cove, a tiny inlet hidden on the southwest coast of Wilson’s Promontory, the southernmost point of mainland Australia.
Lucky Bay, Western Australia
Australia’s whitest beach, Lucky Bay, is also one of Western Australia’s most idyllic; the biggest jewel in a string of stunning beaches along the coast of Cape Le Grand National Park and Esperance. Its squeaky-clean sand, turquoise water, perfect swimming conditions and breathtaking views of the Recherche Archipelago regularly put it at the top of Australia’s best beach list. Even the kangaroos can’t resist lazing on the sand here.
The bay stretches for five kilometres and with no crowds to battle, you’re guaranteed to find your own slice of paradise to relax or cast a fishing line.
