Top-10 List: Our Favourite Islands of Australia
[ more Top-10 Lists ]
This list is our own personal top-ten islands we have seen in our travels around Australia, mostly from our 2008 around Australia trip. Of course, Australia itself is our favourite island, but here are some of the smaller ones we like too.
Lord Howe Island
Lord Howe Island is a pacific island, but still part of Australia, and is surrounded by the world’s southern-most coral reef. It might be part of Australia, but if you go there you will feel a million miles away.
Australia’s biggest island, and lovers of nature and Australian history should visit.
Kangaroo Island, SA
Rottnest Island, WA
Penguin Island, WA
Woody Island, Esperance, WA
Magnetic Island, QLD
Granite Island, Victor Harbor, SA
Low Isles, Great Barrier Reef, QLD
Low Isles is one of the many islands which form part of the Great Barrier Reef. We went here are part of our snorkelling tour, visiting the island because it was a lot easier to access than the outer reef.
Melville Island, NT
- other islands that did not make the list: Phillip Island (VIC), Mutton Bird Island, Coffs Harbour (NSW)
