“Hurry. It’s starting at 6!” @markpartonmla spotted these two rushing home to catch their favourite evening show near the town of #Theodore. Located just half an hour south of the @visitcanberra CBD near #TuggeranongHill, it’s common to see #kangaroos hopping around this area as it’s close to the #CanberraNaturePark. You’ve got to keep your eyes peeled for these native animals though, as they tend to hop through the bushland fairly quickly. If you want to spend more time with our Aussie #wildlife, try visiting @nationalzoo or @canberrareptilezoo instead, where you ’re guaranteed up-close encounters with a range of critters.

Did you know @PalmBayResort on #LongIsland in @whitsundaysqld has its very own secluded private cove, and is closely located to both #AirlieBeach on the mainland and the iconic @gbrmarinepark, making it easy to get to and take day trips from. Stay in a beachfront bungalow and simply step out onto the cove for #kayaking, fishing, or guided #GreatBarrierReef tours. TIP: #PalmBayResort is the only self-catering accommodation in the #Whitsundays, so make sure you stock up on supplies beforehand or be prepared to buy some from the resort’s onsite store.

“Can you believe this is only 45 minutes south of @cityofadelaide?” @ttomwalkerr’s response to his first sight of stunning #SellicksBeach is totally understandable! The gigantic rolling hills and white sand #beach looks like a scene straight out of Jurassic Park, rather than @southaustralia’s @officialfleurieupeninsula. Parking is allowed on the sand here, so you can simply drive straight onto the #beach and lounge around all day long. Pop into the local @victoryhotel for a bite to eat, and enjoy your meal with a side of fabulous scenery.

Shhhh, looks like there’s some serious meditation happening at #CataractGorgeReserve this evening 🤫🧘🏻‍♂️ @monamuseum’s summer festival, @monafoma, is currently in full swing in @tasmania’s #Launceston, so incredible art installations like this one by @ParerStudio are popping up all over town. There’s more to this fabulously quirky event in @northerntasmania than you could possibly imagine; including headline music acts, dance, theatre, local food producers and “non-dorky workshops.” Hurry, it’s only on till 20 January - you don’t want to end up with a case of Mona FOMO if you miss out 😉

"Are you here for the morning beach tour, mate?" @_markfitz spotted this #kangaroo at the beachside campground at #DiamondHead, which is one of the most popular places to stay in #CrowdyBayNationalPark. Located on @visitnsw's @BarringtonCoast, this picturesque camping spot has fabulous #beach views, access to several walking trails, great amenities, and lots of friendly local roos to show you around 😉

Eskimo kisses are simply the best 🐨 😘 @ge0_pap witnessed this “magic moment” between a #koala mum and her joey as he was driving through @southaustralia's @visitadelaidehills, and what a special sight to see! Only a 45-minute drive from @cityofadelaide, this region has plenty of Aussie #wildlife roaming free, so keep an eye out in the trees and you might just see some koalas in the wild for yourself. If you want a close-up koala experience, visit @clelandwildlifepark, @warrawong_wildlife_sanctuary or @gorgewildlifepark, with the latter even offering free koala holding sessions daily!

Spreading a little sunflower happiness to you today, courtesy of @sqcountry 🌻 @shannonoreillygomes photographed this bright #sunflower crop in @queensland’s #Allora, which is a small town located about two hours from @visitbrisbane. These cheerful #flowers only bloom from January to March, so now is the time to visit! Before going on a #sunflower search, check at the local Visitor Information Centres in #Warwick or #Toowoomba to find out which areas are currently in flower as their life cycles aren’t very long. And, of course, remember to respect the property when trying to get the perfect photo, admire from a distance and no trespassing please ☺️ #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #travel #explore #naturephotography

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.

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!

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!

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.
