    This perfect blue lake can be found on Fraser Island, which is only a few hours north of Brisbane. The water is clear and calm, making it perfect for anyone who doesn't want to be swimming against waves.

    Rainbow Beach is home to this incredible coastline and a gorgeous calm lagoon. What's even better is that it's only about a half-hour drive from both Double Island Point and Fraser Island, so you could potentially visit all three in one day.

    As if this beach wasn't pretty enough already, an adorable heart sculpture makes it a picture-perfect location. A word of warning though, this is one of the beaches you don't want to swim in. Crocodiles can be found in the shallows, so it's best to just admire from the sand.

    9. Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast
