An Australian summer isn’t complete without toting the tribe to the beach for days of fun in the sun. And a family beach trip means getting a bunch of gear over the sand – which is where beach trolleys come in handy!

Taking kids to the beach means lugging beach tents, umbrellas, buckets and spades, sunscreen, food, drinks and towels, so having a beach wagon that can carry the lot is a must. And some beach carts are sturdy enough to carry a tired toddler or two!

There’s a big range of choice when it comes to beach trolleys, from simple to bells and whistles models. So we’ve done all the hard work and found some of the best beach trolleys for Australian families.

What to look for in a beach trolley

Weight limit: Not all beach trolleys can carry a big load. And while the weight limit make look large, it’s often halved when trying to go over soft sand.

Space: If you’re a larger family, or like to take plenty of home comforts to the beach, look for a trolley with plenty of room and a sturdy frame.

Tyres: From plastic to rubber, all-terrain to air-filled, large and small, take a good look at the tyres and make sure you choose a set to suit.

Handling: Telescopic handles make it easier for parents of any size to lug the beach trolley, and ones that lock in place are a godsend!

Durability: Aussie beaches and the sun are unforgiving, so look for quality materials that are built to last.

  • These carts are the cutest idea for the beach. I’d like one just because they look so sweet :)


  • I can imagine the places to use this more than the beaches.


  • I am more keen on the enclosed one as the others would be hard to put anything in. It would be handy to bring my shopping from the car inside.


  • How they didn’t even let slip in conversation is beyond me!
    Each to their own, they obviously thought long and hard about their decision, people should respect that.
    A nice surprise all the same but I think I would be hurt if my brother had kept it secret but I wouldn’t carry on…


  • While these look great, I’m not sure I would use it enough to get my money’s worth.


  • Great idea having a cart because we carry so many things just for the kids alone


  • Cute but we don’t live near the coast so wouldn’t get our money’s worth out of these.


  • My friend got one of these trolleys last year and it certainly came in handy with our boys at the beach! A worthwhile investment for sure!


  • Good read I’m looking to get one thanks for all the info


  • Very handy little devices with many uses, but some of them are quite expensive and I wonder how durable they would be …..


  • I don’t need one of these but oh, how I wish they were around when my son was younger. They are fantastic and I’m seeing them everywhere.


  • I like the idea of it. Very handy at the beach or just to take shopping inside the house.


  • How epic do these things look. So usefull to


  • We have the Wanderer and it’s pretty good to push across different terrains.


  • A must have!!

    • Yes, I think to get one for my husbands birthday, cause he always does a lot of carrying of beach gear
