. . . NUDE BEACHES FOR EVERY BODY . . .
Welcome to the Free Beaches Australia (FBA) information portal – strip off, relax and find yourself a nice patch of sand somewhere around Australia. Note that there are some pictures of naked people on this site – nothing sexual or offensive so it’s all very safe, but you might want to be careful at work! Unless you’re allowed to work nude, in which case you’ll be fine!!

. . . FREE BEACH ETIQUETTE . . .
The Naturist/Nudist community is a fantastic caring group of people from a diverse range of back grounds who are aware of the fragile balance and scrutiny their textile free family lifestyle attracts. This common sense approach to ‘free beach etiquette’ has been developed to ensure the growth, the safety and to facilitate a balanced acceptance of the textile free family lifestyle within mainstream society.

- No sexual activity – be nude not lewd – this just undermines our objectives
