We can all stop searching for #Australia ’s Number One Beach now, @_markfitz has found it in @visitnsw ! Well, the beach’s name is literally #NumberOneBeach , while its true ranking remains unknown, we’d say it’s pretty high up on our list 😉 Located a three-hour drive from @sydney on the @barringtoncoast , this #beach is popular not only with the locals who love to swim and surf here, and but also the resident fur seals who like to do the same! Stay a few nights in the nearby coastal village of #SealRocks and beach-hop to your heart’s content. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #barringtoncoast #travel #explore
Found: the perfect place to escape the midweek blues 💙 If you're a #rockpool and beach lover like @sarahbyden , then we're pretty sure you're going to like @southaustralia This part of #Australia combines dramatic clifftop scenery and remote surfing and fishing spots with stunning beaches and a sparkling green sea. Hint: The @eyrepeninsula , in particular, is full of beautiful spots like this #waterhole in @port_lincoln. Explore it for yourself and see what you find! #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #eyrepeninsula #portlincoln #thegreatoutdoors #travel

When you want to make sure you get that very last bit of leftovers 😋 Seeing a #kangaroo in the wild is a wonderful sight, like @leragoldd did here at @visitnsw 's #PebblyBeach . Located in @visitshoalhaven 's #MurramarangNationalPark , the #beach is a four-hour drive from @sydney , and you'll often see local roos hanging out on the grass. Kangaroo-watching between swims makes for an extra Aussie experience; make sure you have your camera on hand! #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #shoalhaven #travel #wildlifephotography
Wake up to the clean country air in @seehighcountry 🤠🌄 @thevictorianhighcountry captured this classic scene of his mates admiring a golden #sunset over @mt_buller ’s #KingBillyNo2 , and it makes us want to put our #Akubras on immediately! Just over a five-hour drive from @visitmelbourne , #MtBuller is popular with skiers and snowboarders in winter, but is also a nature-lover’s paradise in warmer months. Wear your hiking boots and pack a picnic to take on the stunning walking trails, and plan the time of your #hike accordingly if you want to catch a sight like this at sundown. #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #seehighcountry #adventure #travel #naturephotography
We’re pleased to report that it’s yet another beautiful day on @norfolk.island 👌 Perfectly captured here by @airloft , this #island in the Pacific Ocean is around a 2.5-hour flight from @sydney or @visitbrisbane , and you can see its green rolling hills and stunning shoreline as you fly in. Fun fact: It's the only place in the world where the telephone book lists people under their nicknames like “Diddles” and “Spud”. BRB, gotta call Diddles for tips to plan our trip right now 😉 #seeaustralia #norfolkisland #travel #naturephotography #explore
Eat and smile at the same time? Too easy! Quokkas are excellent multitaskers, y’know 😉 Go for a stroll on @westernaustralia ’s @rottnestislandwa like @thatmrlund did, and you’ll likely see a #quokka (or ten!) wearing a big grin on its face whilst munching on leaves. These cute critters are so used to visitors that they often come right up to them, so expect lots of close-up photo opportunities. The local Rottnest Voluntary Guides Association runs a free ‘quokka walk’ tour daily, join in if you’re keen to learn more about these unique creatures and their habitat. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #rottnestisland #wildlife #travel
Good morning from @nambuccavalleytourism ☀️ @ianhollisphotography captured the beauty of #NambuccaHeads on this fine #summer day, where the ever-changing sandbars make for a simply stunning sight. Located at the mouth of @visitnsw ’s #NambuccaRiver , the glassy waters here are home to pods of bottlenose dolphins, which can often be seen while on tour with @nambucca_river_cruises. Do the five-hour drive up from @sydney , or fly into @coffscoastnsw , which is only 30 minutes away. We’ll race you there! #seeaustralia #NewSouthWales #beaches #explore #travel
Excuse us for a moment while we pretend to be mermaids at @westernaustralia ’s #InjidupNaturalSpa 🧜🏻‍♀️ Looks like @gypsylovinlight had the same idea when she visited this gorgeous spot in @australias_southwest with @bobbybense. Located in the @margaretriver region, this natural ocean spa, also known as #WyadupSpa , has been perfectly created by Mother Nature, and the waves create a natural massage experience when they come crashing over the rocks. TIP: If you’re still in need of some pampering, there’s also @injidupretreatandspa nearby which offers a luxurious (manmade) spa experience with ocean views. 😉 #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiassouthwest #margaretriver #wildlifephotography #travel
How does the self-timer work again, honey? 📸 #Echidna duo Eddie and Edwina at @tasmania 's @platypus_house tried their best working the camera, and we think it worked out quite well! 😂 This #wildlife sanctuary at @northerntasmania 's #BeautyPoint allows visitors to get up close to echidnas and platypus, two unique Aussie animals that cannot be found anywhere else in the world, and are usually rather hard to spot in the wild. The location is great for an afternoon pick-me-up too, enjoy a great coffee from the onsite café overlooking the #TamarRiver between spending time with these cute creatures. #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #northerntasmania #travel #explore
This is how we do our morning laps in @sydney , care to join us? 💦🏊🏻 @benmack_ captured this stunning scene at #BronteBaths , which is arguably one of the most photogenic and enticing #rockpools along the @visitnsw coast. Do a few laps whilst waves crash over into the pool, then stroll over to @bogeyholecafe or @jennyscafebronte for a cuppa. TIP: the pool closes several times a month for cleaning, so make sure you check ahead to avoid showing up to an empty pool. Worst case scenario, you can always take a dip in the ocean right next to it instead 😉 #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #brontebeach #travel #optoutside
A red dirt road with epic ocean views? Well, this has gotta be @westernaustralia ! 🚌 @_aswewander went on an incredible #roadtrip to @visitbroome , which is an epic driving experience that no one can forget. Start from @destinationperth and give yourself two weeks or so to drive the 2,500 kilometres through @australiascoralcoast and up to @australiasnorthwest. Stop along the way to check out #ThePinnacles , see @visitgeraldton ’s #HuttLagoon , swim with whale sharks in @visitningaloo , and end up in the amazing @thekimberleyaustralia for a remote wilderness adventure. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiasnorthwest #thekimberley #travel #thegreatoutdoors
Oh @sydney , you really know how to send out romantic vibes 💜 @rickiharrison_ captured this gorgeous lilac sky over the #SydneyHarbourBridge on a balmy summer’s evening. This iconic arch #bridge clearly looks great with the #sunset as its backdrop, but it’s also an incredible vantage point for sunset viewing when you’re actually on it. Book a @bridgeclimb ‘twilight tour’ which takes you 134 metres above sea level, or simply walk across the bridge on the pedestrian pathway as the sun goes down; both are a classic #Sydney experience! #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #sydneylocal #sydneyoperahouse #travel
