Just give us a minute to take in that view 😍 @sotodaywefound couldn’t help but stop and stare when walking down to #LongreachBay on @westernaustralia’s @rottnestislandwa. This #island is roughly a 25-minute ferry ride from #Fremantle, off the coast of @destinationperth. You’ve most likely heard of Rotto’s famous quokka population, but it’s also known for being home to some of the region’s best #beaches too! Book the Island Explorer Bus tour at the visitor centre, and you can hop on and off anywhere you like along the bus route to find your own favourite #beach.

Wait for it... 🐋🐋 @johnny_gaskell was understandably taken by surprise when this double breach happened right before his eyes near #DaydreamIsland in @whitsundaysqld recently. #Whales frolicking around the islands of the #Whitsundays is a common occurrence between June and September. In fact, they choose this particular part of @Queensland to give birth to their calves; the warm and protected waters here make for the ideal nursery!

Paddling through the week like 💦 Rather be SUP boarding on @thekimberleyaustralia’s #LakeArgyle right now? Check out our Instagram Stories to see what #TheBachelorAU’s @nickbadger got up to in this beautiful part of @westernaustralia with @kimberleyspirit ☝️ Photo: @saltywings

Three @Sydney icons squeezed into one postcard-perfect shot by @svendsania 👏 @lunaparksydney, the #SydneyHarbourBridge, and the @sydneyoperahouse (can you spot the famous sails in the background?) all look rather beautiful in this soft afternoon light. The iconic #LunaPark amusement park makes a great day out for both kids and the young at heart. Hop on the ferry from Circular Quay for a short ride to #MilsonsPoint Wharf and you’re right in front of the park; alternatively, take a scenic stroll across the bridge from The Rocks to get there.

Check out this herd of water elephants that @markashley_ spotted! 🐘 Have a second look and you’ll see why this spot in @westernaustralia’s William Bay National Park is called #ElephantRocks. These rock formations are located near the forested village of #Denmark in @australias_southwest, which can be reached via a scenic 4.5-hour road trip from @destinationperth. Tip: Arrive hungry so you can eat yourself silly and taste local wines at the delicious cellar doors and wineries here, like @foresthillwines and @willoughby.park

Serious #bath time goals at @thaliahaven 🛁🥂 No wonder @amesrobertson is looking so relaxed here, who wouldn’t want to be taking in views of @eastcoasttasmania’s #GreatOysterBay from an outdoor tub like this?! Just an hour from @hobartandbeyond, this luxury retreat in @Tasmania has five kilometres of private coastline, and their indulgent bath offering comes complete with a wood-fired sauna and outdoor shower. BTW, we’re taking the rest of the day off to check-in here; you’re more than welcome to join us.

Can we order one of these shower heads from @queensland please?🚿 @elisecook had a refreshing swim at #MillaaMillaaFalls in the lush rainforest of #WooroonooranNationalPark in the @athertontablelands. This magnificent #waterfall is only a two-hour drive from #Cairns, and is one of the most popular spots on @tropicalnorthqueensland’s famous Waterfall Circuit. Enjoy lunch on the grassy picnic area after a swim in the pristine water here, and if you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a platypus!

This view was so dreamy, we had to frame it 🖼️@_danieltran_ found this awesome vantage point at Lincoln’s Rock in the #BlueMountains, looking over a fog-filled morning at #JamiesonValley. This World Heritage Listed @visitnsw National Park is a natural wonderland of tall forests, sandstone cliffs, canyons and waterfalls, and is only two hours west of @sydney. Lace up your #hiking boots and explore the large number of walking trails here, they all vary in level of difficulty but have one thing in common; amazing views of course!

Who's up for a long walk along @thisismagneticisland's #PicnicBay Jetty? @workfortravel loved that she captured a cheeky @townsvillenorthqueensland in the background. This little @queensland #island is a 25-minute ferry ride away from #Townsville and has some wonderful secluded beaches and fishing spots. Relax and unwind on #PicnicBay’s sweeping beach or drop a line at the #jetty to catch your own dinner. No fuss for the amateur fishers, you can still enjoy beachside dining at @thereefbarcafe or the #PicnicBayHotel for your dose of fresh seafood.

“I’m telling you now, this is the best beachfront dining spot around!” @thiescar got some insider tips when he hung out with the local #kangaroos in @westernaustralia’s #LuckyBay. A 40-minute drive from @visitesperance will get you to this gorgeous white sand beach in @australiasgoldenoutback’s #CapeLeGrandNationalPark. Kangaroos often sunbath or hop around the #beach early in the day, stay overnight at the campgrounds and you’ll most certainly see them hopping by your tent.

What’s better than an infinity pool? An infinity pool with a panoramic view of the @ausoutbackNT! 😎 @goldykilner soaked up sweeping views of #KakaduNationalPark while having Gunlom Plunge Pool all to himself in @tourismtopend. This natural pool is one of #Australia’s most picturesque waterholes, and can be reached by a short hike up the cliff at Waterfall Creek. If you’re staying overnight, you’d be happy to know that there are solar-powered hot showers at the camping area!

BRB, we’re off on a colourful road trip in @westernaustralia 🚗 @toughvantourers loved the incredible colours of #RoebuckBay as they drove through this part of @australiasnorthwest. The pindan soil along the shoreline is what’s giving the water a distinctive red colour before transforming into turquoise blue further out. Challenge yourself to an epic 2,500-kilometre road trip from #Perth to #Broome to reach this unique and dramatic @thekimberleyaustralia landscape. We suggest doing it over 2 weeks as there are lots to explore along the way!
