Bettys Beach

Did you know that Australia has just under 11,000 Beaches? Yes... that's a lot of coastline. With a population of just 23 million, it's not too difficult to stumble upon your own little touch of sandy paradise when exploring Australia's East Coast. We took to Instagram to find photographic evidence that Australia is the absolute bomb when it comes to backpacking destinations! Here are some of our favourite beach snaps to fuel your inner travel bug.
