Where are the world’s most beautiful sunsets?

Boy-running-sunset-DarwinSomeone told me that they thought the world’s most beautiful sunsets were in Africa. I beg to differ.

Travelling through Australia I have seen some amazing sunsets (and sunrises but that’s for another day). Whether it’s in the outback, over the ocean, or an inland lake or river, Australia has the most beautiful sunsets in the world.

In places like Cape York you can even see the sunrise over one ocean, then watch it set the same day over another. Where else in the world can you do that?

And to prove it – here is just a selection of some of the sunsets I’ve seen in my travels. None of these photos has been altered in any way, except to crop to a suitable shape and size.

What do you think? Are the world’s best sunsets in Australia?

  1. I am SO with you on this one, girlfriend! One of my most popular posts is 12 Killer OZ Sunsets from 2012 – we give GREAT sunset downunder!!!

    1. Yep, we sure do. And people love seeing the photos. The outback sunset has been my most popular ‘photo of the week’. I can’t wait for the sunsets out in the centre on my upcoming trip!
