Brad Farmer is a beach expert and said his research shows that more hidden gems are being discovered through social media.

"Social sharing is now an economic phenomenon, where people are travelling and exploring to experience real difference, either through their fingertips or literally on the road less travelled,” Mr Farmer said.

While oz isn't the most visited destination in the world, in social media circles, we're No.1.

Tourism Australia holds the title of the world’s most followed national tourism organisation with 8 million Facebook fans and 2.8m Instagram followers.

And with so many beautiful beaches, we can see why...
