We know that summer this year won’t look like any other. Hopefully travel will definitely be on the cards for what’s sure to be a beautiful season.
Here at Trusted Travel, we’re staying positive. We’re picturing ourselves lounging on beaches under palm trees, taking the boat out for a spin, relaxing on the balcony of our waterfront villa in the afternoon sun… Doesn’t it sound heavenly?
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we’ll end up at one of Trusted Travel’s top 5 Australian summer destinations of 2020 below:
Far North Queensland
First cab off the rank, if you REALLY like hot weather, you can’t go past Far North Queensland for summer. With tropical weather and warm water all year round, this is one northern gem you must tick off your bucket list! With one of the seven greatest natural wonders just a stone’s throw away, the Great Barrier Reef is just one way to spend your day with a jet-boat from the shore and a snorkel out amongst some of the world’s most exotic fauna and coral – What’s not to love!
Byron Bay, NSW
With its stunning natural attractions and eclectic community vibe, Byron Bay on the North Coast of NSW is one of our favourite coastal gems. With its gorgeous beaches, breathtaking rainforest, spectacular coastal trails, amazing marine life and a buzzing food scene, anyone who has been to Byron always wants to go back for more. We sure do.
St Helens, TAS
St Helens is a classic fishing town with all the vibrancy of a modern town. Sitting at the base of the Bay of Fires conservation area at the north-east tip of Tasmania, St Helens is renowned for its white sandy beaches and crystal-clear water, a definite top picks for a summer getaway. St Helens is the state’s second largest fishing port and is an active community with plenty of fresh seafood to be enjoyed straight off the boat! There are bushwalks and surf beaches to be discovered, fishing cruises and underwater caves – it’s an outdoor adventure playground waiting to be explored.
Just 30 minutes from Perth City, Fremantle (Freo if you’re a local) has long been renowned for its mix of arty and alternative types. There is plenty to see and do in this trendy city. The streets buzz with the song of buskers, the sidewalks fill with a wild collection of art and the music that floats out from trendy cafés and bars.
Outside Fremantle’s city centre you’ll find gorgeous beaches and walking and bicycle trails meandering along the sparkling waters of the coast and the river’s edge. South Fremantle with its calm beaches and restaurants has emerged as an essential part of the Fremantle experience and in East Fremantle you’ll find river walks, parks and restaurants to enjoy away from the hustle and bustle. Boasting perfect warm sunny weather, Fremantle is one of our top summer destinations. It was just pipped at the post by our top favourite…
South Coast, NSW
We’re probably biased with this one because it’s so close to home for us but we can’t go past the pristine South Coast of New South Wales for summer. From Callala and Currarong at the very top of Jervis Bay all the way down to Pambula and Eden just above the Victorian border, you’ll always be able to catch a glimpse of a migrating whale or a pod of dolphins playing just metres from the white sandy shores. The people are laid back, the hospitality is next level and the beaches a crisp white, we can’t recommend this one highly enough. This is why it’s at the top of our Top 5 Australian Summer Destinations of 2020.
