It’s no surprise that we’re so crazy about the beach in Australia – we’re surrounded by beautiful oceans on every side, and in most places our weather’s absolutely ideal for it. This time we’ve compiled a list of 10 of the best beach houses in Australia – for no other reason than to gape at them in envy and awsomeness…
This unbelievable house in the Whitsundays is made from concrete and travertine, to complement the tropical Queensland heat and rain.
Inspired by the brain-bending Klein Bottle, this incredibly dramatic beach house is based in Rye, on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
Perched confidently on the edge of a 70 metre cliff at Dover Heights, just outside of Sydney. Check out that view…
Another incredibly serene, sun-drenched concrete house in Queensland – this one’s based in Rocky Point.
This beautiful house on the Bouddi Peninsula was actually pretty badly fire damaged a while ago, but we found out that it’s currently being rebuilt.
Another sprawling, open, ridiculously photogenic and beautifully built Hamilton Island (Queensland) retreat.
Warmth from every board and beam, this fantastic home was built by the architect’s own hand, and is situated among the trees in Clareville Beach, NSW.
This home is an iconic landmark down the Great Ocean Road in Fairhaven, Victoria. It’s actually due to be knocked down pretty soon – although we’re told it’s going to be replaced by another equally likeable house on a pole.
Another incredible house built on the side of a cliff – but this Palm Beach, NSW house actually incorporates the cliff face into the interior of the house as a wall.
