Sunsets and sunrises of Australia

A couple of months ago I moved into my apartment and I have the most amazing sunsets outside of my window. This reminded me of all the beautiful sunsets and sunrises I saw in Australia and how I still miss it everyday. After looking back at them I thought it would be a nice idea to show you all the amazing sunsets and sunrises I saw there back in 2014. I tried to make a selection but it was difficult because they are all so beautiful! haha.

I think Australia is a beautiful country with a lot of diversities. You have big cities like Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane but when you go into land you will be in the outback where it will take hours to get to a supermarket.

So I would say enjoy these beautiful sunsets and sunrises pictures I took.

Somewhere in Western Australia

7 Miles Beach

7 miles beach 2

This picture was my first sunset in Australia and it was only the beginning. I saw this when I was at surf camp.

Busselton, Western Australia

sunsets and sunrises

Busselton is a small town located in south-west Australia and has the longest wooden jetty (pier) of the southern hemisphere. At the end of the jetty there is an underwater observatory and an interpretive centre.
You can walk to the end or use the tourist train.
I really wanted to visit the underwater observatory but because it was really windy that day the observatory was closed.

Below you can see the sunset photos I took along the coast of Busselton.




Alice Springs/Uluru


When I did my tour from Darwin to Adelaide we stopped at Uluru and saw two sunrises. So we took a lot of pictures ;). I will try to post about this soon. I think it’s a must do when you are in Australia.

Byron Bay


When you are in Byron Bay you have to walk to the lighthouse and see the sunset there. But don’t forget a flashlight because walking back down in complete darkness is no fun! Believe me, haha!

sunset noosa
Noosa lookout

Besides that Noosa will always hold a special place in my heart is also has the most beautiful sunsets.
Here are a couple of pictures I took at the lookout and when I did the sunset cruise with Lena.



Palm Beach


Palm Beach is just a bite North from Sydney. They also film the soap opera Home and Away here.
This is the only sunset picture I have of the sunset of Palm Beach because after that my phone crashed and I lost a lot of pictures. But you can imagine how beautiful this would have been?!

Blue Mountains


This picture is taken at the Blue Mountains. Again I had amazing sunset pictures of the Blue Mountains but that was before my phone crashed. I’m still so sad about this.

Whitsundays Islands


The first pictures is a sunset at the Whitsundays Islands. The bottom ones are sunrises from the boat somewhere between the Whitsundays Islands. I won’t say anything and just let you enjoy these sunsets and sunrises. It was unreal.

Sorry about the sunsets and sunrises overload, haha, but I hope you liked them!

    Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I love a good lighthouse and you sure took a great one. BTW~ One can never have too many sunrise or sunset experiences.

      Thank you and I agree with you on that! 🙂

    Such a beautiful range of different sunsets, all unique in their own way. I’m always amazed by them, never gets boring. In the Philippines there were some insane sunsets even with storm clouds in the middle, crazy!

      Thank you. Oh I bet those are amazing to see as well! Hopefully I can get to experience that one day 🙂

    I must agree! Australia does have some of the best sunrises and sunsets because of our dramatic scenery. I think it would be hard to beat.

    Beautiful post! I should save this just for those times I need some de-stressing, these photos are so soothing. I’ve not yet made it to Australia, but husband’s company does have an office there. We really need to pursue a business/vacation trip!

    • August 20, 2017 / 2:20 pm

      Thank you! I also think it’s time to do a business/vacation trip over there 😉 Have fun!

    Lovely photos. I love watching sunrises and sunsets myself.
    I hope I get to Australia someday in the nearfuture to check them out myself 🙂

    • August 20, 2017 / 2:19 pm

      Thank you. I hope you get there too one day so you can enjoy these sunsets and sunrises as well 🙂

    Oh my goodness!!!! You’re so lucky to have seen such beautiful sunrises and sunsets in Australia. I’ve definitely been dying to visit for some time now and your gorgeous photos just make me wanna hop on a plane over there right now!

    • September 5, 2017 / 6:35 pm

      Thank you. I hope you get there one day!

    Australia definitely has some beautiful sunrises and sunsets! I’ve also seen amazing ones in San Diego, California 🙂

    • September 5, 2017 / 6:36 pm

      I would love to go to San Diego one day!

    You really did a great job capturing all these towns in Australia though these sunset pictures. Too bad your phone died for the Palm Beach sunset photos but the one you took is still alright. I think the best sunset we’ve seen was on Prince Edward Island in Canada but it’s hard to say that one sunset is better than another. That is our favourite one recently because we enjoyed walking on the sandy beach.

      Thank you. My phone didn’t die but crashed. I’m still very sad about that.
      I have been to PEI but didn’t see a sunset unfortunately. And very true every sunset is different and can’t really compare.

    Very lovely seeing the magnificent sunsets and sunrise from different beautiful places in Australia

    Jaaaah… wat heb ik ook genoten van schitterende zonsondergangen in Australië en Nieuw Zeeland. De wolkenvelden! Heel anders dan in Azië. Daar heb je dat helemaal niet.

      Viel het jou ook op dat het leek dat je de wolken kon aanraken?
