Brb, we're getting on a plane to @southaustralia - the sunsets here are just too good! @lovechloejane described this breathtaking display at #southportbeach as "a smear of colourful chaos... pure brilliance." believe it or not, this beach is only a 40-minute drive from #southaustralia's capital city of #adelaide, in the @officialfleurieupeninsula region. the coastline here seems to stretch on forever, and you can even drive along several beaches here including aldinga, sellicks and silver sands beaches. photo: @lovechloejane #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #fleurieupeninsula #explore #travel

Ok, @whitsundaysqld, we're officially speechless 😲 @teresattran captured this mind-boggling snap whilst flying with @gsl_aviation over hill inlet, which is famed for its spectacular swirling sands. the long stretch of white sand in the left of this photo is #whitehavenbeach, which spans for seven glorious kilometres. trust us - this place an essential bucket list destination if you're heading to @queensland. photo: @teresattran #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #lovewhitsundays #explore #travel

We could sit here all day staring at this view! this is fort nepean on the @officialmorningtonpeninsula, which is around two hours' drive from @visitmelbourne in the beautiful point nepean national park. there's an impressive network of walking trails here which offer stunning views of port phillip bay and the bass strait. you can also explore the historic series of tunnels, forts and gun emplacements which date back to the 1880s. photo: @jordanfex #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #explore #travel #photooftheday

Billa the #koala's new year's resolution to eat more greens is going rather well, as you can see! she's tucking into a feast of gum leaves at her home in #tidbinbilla nature reserve near @visitcanberra. this reserve is packed with wildlife and the good news is it's open seven days, for just a small entry fee per vehicle. once you arrive, park your car and lace up your boots - there's a walk trail that winds its way through the eucalypt forest where you can spot koalas, wallabies and bettongs. video: tidbinbilla nature reserve #visitcanberra #canberra #wildlife #travel #nature

Good morning, @visitnoosa - you're looking rather lovely today! noosa main beach is undoubtedly one of the @visitsunshinecoast's most popular beaches, so it's an essential stop on the itinerary if you're visiting this part of @queensland. or, even better, stick around for a few days - there's plenty of lovely accommodation in these parts. the resort tucked behind the palm trees in this photo is called @onthebeachnoosa, and it's the ideal place to kick back for a relaxing seaside getaway. talk about absolute beachfront! photo: @frysteen #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #visitsunshinecoast #visitnoosa #explore #travel

Nothing beats an outdoor shower, right?! 💦 the clear, cascading waters of #stoneycreekfalls in @tropicalnorthqueensland make it the perfect place to cool off, and the best part is they're 100% free of charge. you'll find this lovely #waterfall around 20 minutes' drive from @queensland's city of #cairns, which is one of the most popular access points to the great barrier reef. waterfalls + coral reef = heaven on earth, if you ask us! photo: @_sarahlatham #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploretnq #explore #travel

Ladies and gentlemen, take your seats - the sky show is about to begin! @georgie.mann.photos captured this fiery display in #caramut, which is a small rural township in western victoria. located about 40 minutes' drive from warrnambool on the @visitgreatoceanroad, this farming area features quintessential australian landscapes which are perfect for photography. photo: @georgie.mann.photos #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #explore #travel #sunset

We've officially died and gone to oyster heaven in @southaustralia - rip us 🤤 this spectacular place is indeed an oyster farm; it's called @purecoffinbayoysters, and you'll find it tucked away on the western side of the beautiful @eyrepeninsula. you can take a tour of the farm here, where you'll get to pluck oysters straight from the ocean and see them shucked right in front of you. it doesn't get much fresher than that! photo: @_markfitz #seeaustralia #restaurantaustralia #seesouthaustralia #eyrepeninsula #coffinbay

From the moment she arrived in the @visitsunshinecoast, the #glasshousemountains were "calling" @georgie.mann.photos - and with views like this one, we understand why! this is the outlook from the top of mt ngungun, which is only an hour's drive from @visitbrisbane. the hike to the summit takes around 30 minutes, although it's fairly steep so be prepared! it can also get quite warm here so it's best to go super early, both to catch the sunrise and to beat the heat. photo: @georgie.mann.photos #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #visitsunshinecoast #travel #hiking #explore

Is there a more iconic staircase in australia than the one at bells beach?! this famous spot is an essential pit-stop if you're driving the @visitgreatoceanroad, which stretches from the surf town of torquay to allansford, near warrnambool at the western end. if you don't have time to do the whole #greatoceanroad, #bellsbeach is actually only a 90-minute drive from @visitmelbourne so be sure to head down there for a day trip. photo: @spurwaya #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #explore #travel #travelgram

Windy days aren’t so bad when they deliver a colourful scene like this! 💨when the breeze picks up in @experienceperth, the local kitesurfers make a beeline for scarborough beach. located just 20 minutes from the city, this popular beach provides the perfect place for swimming, surfing, soaking up the sun and cafe-hopping. action-lovers can even book in a lesson with @elementalsup to learn how to kitesurf for themselves. photo: @rodrigoperth #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #beach #travel #explore

Three peas in a pod - meet winston, lilly and pearl 🐨🐨🐨 this gorgeous trio lives at @ballaratwildlifepark in victoria, which is around 90 minutes' drive from @visitmelbourne. it's not just adorable koalas that live call this park home; there are loads of other native aussie critters here too. there's also a brand new little penguin exhibit where you can come eye-to-eye with swimming penguins through an incredible underwater viewing window. photo: @photosbyhanna #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #visitballarat #wildlifephotography #explore

When your morning kicks off like this, you know you’re all set for a great day ahead 🙌 beautiful #burleighheads at @destinationgoldcoast is not only photogenic, it’s also packed with things to do. surfing around the headlands, swimming in the protected waters and exploring scenic walking trails are all good places to start. once you’ve worked up an appetite, there are plenty of oceanfront dining options, or head inland to west burleigh where a fab new food scene has developed in an industrial park. photo: @keykodesign #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #wearegoldcoast #beach #travel

Get ready for lanterns, firecrackers, fantastic food and spectacular festivities, as australians welcome the year of the dog 🐶🎊 watch our instagram story now for a sneak peek of this year’s 12 lunar lanterns scattered around the @sydney cbd for @cityofsydney's chinese new year festival. until february 25, celebrations will be held around @visitnsw’s capital, from chinatown to #sydney’s south west. be sure to check out the picturesque chinese garden of friendship in @darlingharbour for lantern making workshops, tai chi classes and traditional tea ceremonies. video: @matjoez #ilovesydney #cnysyd #newsouthwales #chinesenewyear

"no need to be alarmed, i'm just your friendly neighbourhood ray!" @emilyteresaward bumped into this fellow in the shallows at #hamelinbay in the @margaretriver region of @westernaustralia recently. it's quite common to see eagle rays and stingrays here; they come in close to shore to feed on the scraps from local fishermen. hamelin bay is one of the most beautiful beaches in this part of @australiassw; in fact, emily describes it as "one of the best beaches i’ve been to". we can certainly see why! photo: @emilyteresaward #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiassw #travel #wildlifephotography

Meet you at byron bay... one look at this beautiful shot of #wategosbeach, and we’re daydreaming of a coastal getaway to this hotspot in @visitnsw. one of a number of idyllic beaches in #byronbay, wategos is famed for the pod of local bottlenose dolphins that love hanging out there and can be seen most days catching waves with surfers. it’s also home to the dreamy boutique hotel, @raesonwategos, which is a rather lovely spot for lunch, dinner or an overnight stay. photo: @crollanusero #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #beach #surf #travel

According to @los_travel , "if you hate coastal road trips with incredible views, stunning beaches, centuries-old rainforest and happy sleeping koalas, then you will hate the great ocean road." with a description like that, we can't imagine there'd be too many haters out there! this incredible road stretches for several hundred kilometres along victoria's beautiful south coast, and is a must-do if you're heading to @visitmelbourne and have a couple of days up your sleeve. photo: @los_travel #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #explore #travel #photooftheday

The prize for today's most epic view goes to #tolmerfalls in the @ausoutbacknt 👌 @savvy_social was stoked to be treated to such a sunny, blue-sky day on a recent trip to litchfield national park; clear skies are a tad unusual at this time of year in the @tourismtopend, which is currently in the midst of the wet season. this particular waterfall is one of litchfield's most spectacular, cascading over two high escarpments into a deep plunge pool. photo: @savvy_social #seeaustralia #ntaustralia #topendnt #explore #travel

When your romantic photo gets bombed by a maori wrasse, it's just another day on the #greatbarrierreef! this rather large fish's name is wally, and he's a long-term resident of moore reef in @tropicalnorthqueensland. the team at @sunloverreefcruises refer to wally as "a local celebrity" - apparently, he often gets jealous when customers and photographers are interacting with other marine life and tries to steal the spotlight. what a poser! photo: @sunloverreefcruises #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploretnq #travel #marinelife
