Tag a mate with a beautiful smile 😄 This #quokka on @westernaustralia’s @rottnestislandwa gave @doroncobilly his very best grin, and we gotta say, he really knows how to work the camera! Catch a ferry off the coast of @destinationperth to meet the island’s adorable and rather photogenic quokka population. The local Rottnest Voluntary Guides Association runs a free ‘quokka walk’ tour daily if you want to learn more about them and their habitat.

If you got it, flaunt it! 🙌🏻 @sydney’s annual beachside exhibition @sculpturebythesea is back at #BondiBeach from today till 4 November. @charlottekutz67 got there early to check out all the amazing #sculptures along the #Bondi to #Tamarama coastal walk (spoiler alert: they're HUGELY impressive.) Grab your camera and put on some comfy shoes for the two-kilometre walk, you can even take a dip in the ocean afterwards to cool off 😉

Cancel your dinner plans right now ➡️ let's meet here instead! 🙌 In the words of @followingemily, who captured this shot, "Now THAT’s what I call a dinner with a view!" We hear you, Emily 😉 @imrickshores restaurant takes beachside dining to a whole new level with this epic outlook of #BurleighHeads at @DestinationGoldCoast. The food here is equally as impressive; this spot has recently been awarded a hat in the @goodfoodau Guide 2018.

It was the greatest movie never made… and now you can visit the set with @hemsworthluke.

In case you missed it, the @royalbotanicgardensvic was on fire… all in the name of art. 🔥 @melbfestival’s #FireGardens lit up @visitmelbourne last week, and according to @objetperdu who captured this shot, this sensory experience was both “magical and spectacular”. While the ship has sailed for this particular installation, the rest of #melbfest is still going strong, with plenty of other free and ticketed events happening across #Melbourne until 21 October - so make sure you check out their program if you’re in town this week.

There’s a new bridge making waves in @destinationperth 🌉 @phlyimages perfectly captured the photogenic #MatagarupBridge, which opened in July and crosses over the #SwanRiver, connecting the #Perth CBD to Burswood and leading to the @optusstadium. Explore the city on foot and do the bridge loop, which not only has great views, but also ticks off your cardio for the day (meaning you can eat out at even more of Perth’s delicious eateries, of course!) #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #seeperth #travel #architecture



Ready to launch in 3, 2, 1! 🚀 @jodie_lowe88 witnessed this impressive #whale rocket, which “did a few crazy breaches”, while out cruising with @portjet in @portmacquarie. This @visitnsw coastal town is a great #whalewatching spot between May and November, and it’s just an hour’s flight or a 4-hour drive from @sydney. Book a cruise to get up close and personal with these majestic creatures, you might even see a dolphin or 10 along the way.

Hands (or feet) up if this is where you’d rather be right now 🙋🏻 @scottiniroberto says he has “never swam with such a view”, and we can certainly understand that! @Lakeargyle Resort & Caravan Park in @westernaustralia is situated on a hilltop overlooking #LakeArgyle, and is arguably @thekimberleyaustralia’s best #infinitypool. All day guests, accommodation and caravan park guests have free entry to the pool - surely that’s enough to convince you to stop here for a few nights on your @australiasnorthwest #roadtrip 😉

“Is that you darl? Left my glasses at home today.” Zilly the #cassowary spotted getting up close and personal at @visitmelbourne’s @zoosvictoria 🤓 An easy 25-minute tram ride will get you here from the #Melbourne CBD, and we recommend spending a whole day at the #zoo so you’ve got plenty of time to meet all of the fascinating #wildlife. For an extra special experience, book a ‘wild encounter’, you’ll get a sneak peek behind the scenes and private animal meet-and-greets.

No one could ever accuse @australiascoralcoast of being dull 🎨 @westernaustralia has a number of pink lakes but @wheresshelly thinks #HuttLagoon “would have to be the easiest to get to, and bonus, you get all sorts of colours in this lake!” Add a splash of colour to your Insta profile and visit this spot via a 6-hour #roadtrip from @destinationperth. TIP: Splash out and book a scenic flight with @geraldton_aircharter or @shineaviation for an aerial perspective, you won’t regret it.

Next stop... an Aussie icon 🚗 It’s hard to beat this #roadtrip scenery! @mnastravel had the best time on their recent trip in @ausoutbacknt’s @visitcentralaus, according to them, “the moment you first stand in front of Uluru....Woooooow!” The @exploreuluru campground is an ideal base for exploring the area, where you can stay in cabins or use the powered site for your caravans. Make sure to take advantage of the swimming pool, barbecue facilities and kitchen, but of course, the view is best of all.
