Got some 'detective work' for yuz.
The shadow of the child is short and behind. Being short means it is close to midday and in Oz the shadow will fall to the South, therefore the child is facing roughly Nth, therefore the beach is facing roughly East. So it must be on the East Coast! Wrong. There are plenty of coastal areas that have beaches facing opposite the predominant direction. Ahhh, but what about the seagulls in the photo; that should narrow it down! There are other people on the beach so it isn't remote; unless they're part of the same tour group. The photo could be cropped so that obvious features are eliminated. Good luck. This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds.

Bware,
Sheltered bay away from prevailing winds. (Boat anchored)
Residences on foreshore and hillside?
Bike or motorbike tracks in front of toddler.

If the photo is taken above the Tropic of Capricorn around Summer the shadow can fall to the North......

If the photo is taken in a huge bay that is on the Southern edge of Aust, then it can be quite possible.

The seagulls have been added afterwards by the looks of it ;-)

There are a lot of bored people sitting around with little to do. The thread thus far concludes it could be anywhere north or south of the Tropic of Capricorn on the east coast - probably. The only conclusion worth a pinch of cocky poo is that it is on a beach. Even the seagulls are dubious apparently.
I have already told them where it actually is they just can't come to grips with it !!!!

Definitely NSW. Obvious from the pile of Tooheys New cans in the top left corner, the guy on the boat wearing a winner's State of Origin jersey and the seagulls with Manly beanies LOLOLOLOL

My bet it that it is no where near any crocs. Toddler on the beach, boat at anchor, people in the distance obviously in the shallows. Not Victoria, water looks too nice and warm, its calm too, a front beach maybe. I'm tipping NSW or Southern QLD or more likely an Island off the coast of same.

Yeah - but there are many places in Australia with bays where the coastline "loops around" so that the beach faces the other way. For instance - Busselton faces North not West, Albany faces South in some places East in other places, Shraks Bay has both West and East, Ceduna has West etc etc
