There are tons of backpackers in Australia (And if you read this, you are probably one of them!).  You will mostly find them on the East Coast.  If you are looking for «the typical backpacking trip», I would not recommend you these places as they are boring, secret and non-touristic.

  1. Lucky Bay, Western Australia

Who really wants to see kangaroos on the beach?

  1. Frenchman Peak, Western Australia

Are there still people who like hiking out there?  Anyway, the clouds blocked the view…

  1. Lancelin Sand Dunes, Western Australia

So, there is a white desert in the middle of nowhere…  Who cares?

  1. The Pinnacles, Western Australia

The sand is yellow and there are plenty of weird rocks.  So, basically, we are talking about sand and rocks.

  1. Nullabor lookout, South Australia

Did you say the Nullabor?  Why should I drive this boring road if there is nothing out there?

  1. The Great Ocean Drive, Western Australia

Is this the Great Ocean road?

  1. Fingal Head, New South Wales

It’s just another beach.

I really hope you will not lose your time trying to get to these places as there is nobody out there.  It’s not worth it.
