I remember I was still a teenager. We had to attend a friend’s wedding in Delhi. Thus my father had booked Kolkata to Delhi Flights. I remember looking out of the window.

International visitors will benefit from frequent flights to Australia from destinations all over the world.

Here are some of the best beaches you can find in this magical state:

If you’re looking for a safe family beach that’s close to Brisbane then head towards Bribie Island, about an hour’s drive north of the city.

Bribie has lovely surf beaches on the ocean side as well as calm water beaches on the mainland side of the island and, although it’s a genuine pacific island, you can get there by car, just drive across the bridge.

Closer still is Coochiemudlo Island, just across the water from Victoria Point.

The ferry ride across to the island takes about ten minutes, you can walk around the entire island in less than an hour and the beaches are great for the littlies.

And, right in the heart of Brisbane at the Southbank Parklands, is Breaka Beach, a man-made lagoon complete with lifesavers and barbeques, great for a day out with the kids when the temperature starts to rise.
