@tasmania’s #tessellatedpavement is mesmerising at dawn 😍 @ringhole recently captured a vivid #sunrise over this mosaic-like rock formation in #eaglehawkneck, which is located around an hour south of @hobartandbeyond. this type of geological phenomenon is extremely rare and found only in a few places on earth, so it’s definitely worth visiting! hot tip: keep the #geology adventure going and check out #tasmansarch, #blowhole and #devilskitchen nearby.

Close your eyes and go with the flow at #florencefalls 😌 @windancethevan have been spending their days swimming in #waterfall after waterfall in @ausoutbacknt’s #litchfieldnationalpark, which is one of the best ways to take advantage of @tourismtopend’s dry season. located two hours from #darwin, the park has plenty of misty waterfalls and lush waterholes for you to explore. don't have a car? @wayoutbackaus and @aatkings both run guided tours that include pick up from #darwin.

Yellow and mellow @sydney 💛 @hamzarafi_ captured this golden hour scene from #dudleypagereserve, isn't it captivating? this park offers a brilliant view of #sydney’s city #skyline, and is only a 20-minute drive from the cbd. we recommend packing a picnic to enjoy while watching the sun go down.

@southaustralia’s outback landscape deserves to be framed 😍 according to @lets_be_adventurers_australia, #sunrise in ikara-flinders ranges national park was an incredibly memorable experience, as “the whole place just lit up the moment the sun popped over the horizon.” stay at @wilpenapoundresort and join a guided tour on the park’s aboriginal history, or do a 4wd tour. getting to the park is a fun trip in its own, as it’s a five-hour drive from adelaide, which you can spread out over a couple of days and visit local wineries along the way.

The vastness of @queensland’s munga-thirri national park will leave you feeling teeny-tiny! @julesingall captured this #sunset scene over the park’s striking sand dunes, some of which stretch for over 200 kilometres 😲 this part of @outbackqueensland, also known as the #simpsondesert, is extremely remote and makes for a great getaway. getting there is half the fun, so plan your #roadtrip and stopover at unique #outback towns along the way.

Sunsets are best viewed with a cuddle ❤️ jack and indi live at @thekangaroosanctuary in @ausoutbacknt, alongside many other adorable rescued #kangaroos. you can visit them on a guided #sunset tour from tuesday to friday; time your @visitcentralaus visit accordingly so you don’t miss it. you can even hold a kangaroo joey on the tour, it’s a must-do when visiting #alicesprings. #seeaustralia #ntaustralia #redcentrent #travel #wildlifephotography

@tasmania serves up such dreamy mornings 💜 @jeon_landscapes witnessed these vibrant colours washing over #cradlemountain and #dovelake in @tasmania snorthwest’s cradle mountain-lake st clair national park. even though it’s now spring in australia, the park is still looking like a winter wonderland, complete with snow-capped mountains and crisp alpine air. spend a few days #hiking through the park, and stay at @cradlemountainhotel or @pepperscradlemountainlodge to make sure you don’t miss a spectacular #sunrise like this.

Watch out, coming through! 🚤 @katebearman said she had the best time exploring @queensland’s #fraserisland, and after checking out this beautiful shot, we're not surprised! this world heritage-listed paradise is the largest sand island in the world, stretching over 123 kilometres in length. get wet and wild on the beach doing all sorts of water activities, or join a 4wd tour with @fraser_dingo to drive along the #beach.

Feeling a bit sleepy there, mate? 😴 @kylerauphotography saw this fellow enjoying a little siesta near @ladyelliotislandecoresort in the @southerngreatbarrierreef. if you want to snorkel with an abundance of green and loggerhead turtles in the crystal clear waters of this part of @queensland, take a 25-minute scenic flight from #bundaberg to get to #ladyelliotisland, you won’t be disappointed.

We interrupt your feed to bring you two adorable tasmanian devil joeys 😍 meet dash and violet, a couple of abandoned #tasmaniandevils who now call the @australianreptilepark home. the pair are being hand-raised by the dedicated keepers at the reptile park in @visitnsw until they're old enough to be released into the @devil_ark conservation facility. video: @australianreptilepark

This @westernaustralia #sunset looks rather otherworldly! @dkphotographyau says they have travelled around the world but @thekimberleyaustralia is one of the most stunning places they’ve ever visited. this photo was taken as they flew over #derby’s branching tributary with #allnorthhelicopters in @australiasnorthwest. this small town is a 2.5-hour drive from #broome, and is famous for having the highest tides in australia, so you’ll be treated to dramatic landscape views like this when the tides change.

We don’t know how this zookeeper can handle this much cuteness, literally! @s.u.e.j.o.y took this adorable photo of six-month-old arlo here, who is one of the #koala joeys born this year at @visitsunshinecoast’s @wildlifehqzoo. you can visit arlo and his furry friends at @queensland’s iconic #bigpineapple which is a 15-minute drive from the cbd. make sure you book the aussie animals encounter tour for your chance to cuddle a koala.
