Queensland's Nudey Beach named best to visit in Australia in 2018

Nudey Beach in Queensland has been named as the number one beach to visit in Australia in 2018.

Tourism Australia ambassador Brad Farmer has written a new book on Australia's best beaches, with his top picks for 2018 likely to attract an increase in tourist footfall over the next 12 months.

With this in mind, property investors wanting to tap into the seasonal rental market may want to consider looking for buy-to-let homes to purchase in the neighbourhoods close to these beaches.

Second on Mr Farmer's list of Australia's best beaches is Horrocks Beach in Western Australia, while New South Wales' Dreamtime Beach came in third. In fourth place was Cossies Beach located in the Cocos Keeling Islands, with the idyllic sandy stretch at Burleigh Heads in Queensland completing the top five.

Meanwhile, Seal Rocks in New South Wales came in sixth, Tasmania's Bay of Fires beach took seventh place and Quobba, Red Bluff, Western Australia came in at number eight. Rounding off the top ten were Christmas Island's Dolly Beach and Second Valley in South Australia, which came in ninth and tenth place respectively.

At number 11 on the list was Neds Beach on Lord Howe Island, Western Australia's Little Beach came in 12th, Tasmania's Wineglass Bay came in at number 13, Moonee Beach in New South Wales at 14 and Cottesloe Beach in Western Australia in 15th place.

Completing the top 20 were Queensland's Agnes Waters, 1770 in 16th place, while the state's Horseshoe Bay came in 17th, followed by Kitty Milley Bay in Victoria in 18th place, Mindil Beach in the Northern Territory in 19th place and Cylinders in Queensland in 20th.

John O'Sullivan, managing director of Tourism Australia, commented: "Brad Farmer's 101 Best Beaches puts the spotlight on just one per cent of Australia's beaches but, ultimately, this is a list that celebrates our unique coastal lifestyle and, with it, every kilometre of the 50,000 km which make up our country's spectacular coastline."
