Most beautiful Australian villages

Small town, big appeal

Away from the cities, you'll find outback settlements, beachside towns, and leafy enclaves with deep histories. These towns and villages are great for day trips, getaways, and exploring the nearby coast or countryside.

Bicheno, Tasmania

Bicheno is a charming town on Tasmania's east coast, with ocean views and beaches. Glass-bottom boat tours from Gulch take passengers to Governor Island Marine Reserve to see marine life. Freycinet Peninsula has oyster farms and wineries.

Beechworth, Victoria

Gold Rush architecture and gourmet treats combine in Victoria's High Country. Its heyday was in the 1850s, but the town still attracts visitors with its restaurants, breweries, shops, and museums. Beechworth Historic and Cultural Precinct is where to learn about its colourful history.

Merimbula, New South Wales

Merimbula's location on NSW's southern Sapphire Coast guarantees blue waters. It has beaches, lagoons, and lakes. Its name comes from an Aboriginal word for "two lakes." Merimbula Lake's boardwalk offers blue vistas.

Stanthorpe, Queensland

Stanthorpe is in southeast Queensland's Granite Belt, a striking landscape with granite outcrops. The rural town is home to Australia's highest vineyards and is surrounded by farmlands and orchards. Mount Marlay offers a good view of the town and its pastoral surroundings.

Port Douglas, Queensland

Katherine, the NT's third-largest town, is a Stuart Highway crossroads. It's also on the Adelaide-Darwin Ghan railway. Despite being near Cutta Cutta Caves Nature Park and Nitmiluk National Park, the remote town is not overcrowded.

Yamba, New South Wales

Anywhere called the new Byron will be fun. Yamba, New South Wales, is at the mouth of the Clarence River. With five main beaches and a buzzing dining scene, days can be spent beach hopping, surfing, sipping craft brews, and eating in boho caf├ęs.
