There are a lot of ways to check the weather in a destination and try to get a feel for a place before you get there and one of those which we have grown rather fond of is by looking up live Australian destination-based webcams.Since webcams have become more popular over the years they having been popping up all over the world in some interesting places and we think some of the webcams in Australia really show off how beautiful our country is. We have found live webcams on the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney Harbor and even Cable Beach in Western Australia. There are also a lot of beaches covered since surfers often use them as a way to check out the waves before heading to the beach.
Some of the webcams are interactive which allows you to control the camera for a limited time, while others have 20 second delays even 20 minute image updates. Some have 1 – 5 minute viewing time limits but you can just refresh the page to start it again in most cases and you can still get a feel for the destinations by looking at the images. But there is nothing like going there so use these webcams to whet your appetite for traveling in Australia
Please note that some webcams may take a little while to load and may have advertising on them.
As a tourist destination some of the more popular locations and activities have live webcams. Beaches from Port Douglas to the Gold Coast are covered although we have just selected a few of the more popular locations.
