There are no legal nude beaches in Queensland.

However, there is an "unofficial" one near Noosa.

Also there is a legal nudist beach in Byron Bay, northern NSW.

Hi Jacky, Kings Beach just south of Byron Bay is probably the nearest. It's a beautiful beach, accessed by a 10 minute walk through rainforest from the car park.

Sydney also has a number of nude beaches. The most famous is Lady Jane Beach near Watson's Bay, though at high tide it almost completely disappears. You also have to contend with gawking tourists on the trail above the beach and on harbour cruises which come close to the beach.

There's Obelisk Beach near Balmoral on the North Shore, though you need a car to get there.

In my opinion Sydney's best nude beach is Little Congwong Beach at La Perouse. Catch the L94 bus from the CBD to the last stop, walk across the main Congwong Beach, then follow the path from the other side of the beach through the bush for 5 mins to little Congwong. Although it's been unoffically a nude beach for decades, signs were erected last summer saying nudity is no longer permitted - apparently some busy-body resident recently moved to the area and complained about naturalists on the beach minding their own business. (rather like people who buy a house under flight paths and complain that the planes are too noisy....) Of course the signs are completely ignored :-) Little Congwong is a little cove in a beautiful bushland setting, still, clear water and on weekends a boat usually pulls up twice a day selling ice creams and cool drinks.
