Australia’s Top Five LGBT Travel Destinations

Sydney, AustraliaSydney

The New South Wales capital has long been recognised as one of the top destinations in the world for LGBTQI travellers, and around Mardi Gras time, you’ll feel like the whole city has turned gay.

We probably don’t need to tell you that much of the party action in Sydney occurs around Oxford Street in Darlinghurst and King Street in Newtown, or that the most popular gay city beaches are at North Bondi and Tamarama.

Instead here are some less obvious things to make your stay more memorable. If you’re looking for slightly less busy beach options, La Perouse at Little Congwong is a better place for a picnic and frolic, while Lady Jane and Obelisk beach all attract a diverse queer crowd.

For those looking for less mainstream and more creative party options outside the regular haunts, try Club Kooky, Lovecult 2000 or hot new queer kid on the block Dishy – all offer alternative Mardi Gras parties catering for the underground queer community. For a lesbian-friendly bar in Sydney try the Sly Fox in Enmore on a Wednesday night.
