Summer is just around the corner and a holiday beckons. While the strong Aussie dollar is tempting many travellers to head overseas, Australia’s tropical islands make a good-value alternative for your next summer escape.

Your Money Magazine compared the hundreds of islands along the Great Barrier Reef to find the top ten best overall.

Managing editor Jackie Pearson said there were some excellent deals to be had.

“Holidaying in Australia means less travel time, less hassle, and you’re doing your bit for the local economy,” said Pearson. “And because of the great value on offer overseas, local operators have to be competitive too and provide excellent deals so it’s win-win for Australian holidaymakers.”

The best tropical retreats each offer unique features and vary widely in accommodation, attractions and prices so it’s worth doing some research when planning your getaway to find the island that best suits your holiday style and budget.

Full coverage of Australia’s best and brightest islands and plenty of smart travel tips are available in the current issue of Your Money Magazine. On sale now at leading newsagents and online at
