How good is the snooze button? 😴 @edringwood saw this sleepy #quokka on @rottnestislandwa , who's not quite ready to get up from its afternoon nap yet. These adorable critters generally sleep during the day and become more active at night, but you’re likely to see some hopping around in daylight when you visit this island in @westernaustralia. A short ferry ride from @destinationperth or #Fremantle will get you here. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #rottnestisland #wildlifephotography #weeklyfluff #animalkingdom
Doesn’t island life look tough on @fitzroyisland ? 😉🍸 @maxxallstar enjoyed some delicious cocktails at the resort’s #FoxysBar , where you can take in amazing ocean views as SUP boarders paddle by. This @queensland island is only a 45-minute boat ride from #Cairns , which makes it a popular day trip in @tropicalnorthqueensland. Our tip: Stay a few days to properly explore all the beaches and rainforest trails on the island, this gorgeous view and icy cold drinks will be waiting for you at the end of each day. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploreTNQ #FitzroyIsland #lovethereef #travel
Peek-a-roo, I see you. 👀 @charlesdavisphotography spotted this #kangaroo in @visitnsw ’s #KosciuszkoNationalPark , where it turns into a winter wonderland every #snow season. Seeing #wildlife in the snow is pretty special, so definitely keep an eye out for kangaroos, wallabies and wombats when you visit this part of @snowymountainsnsw. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #snowymountainsnsw #travel #wildlifephotography
Now, this is a top spot to start your morning at @thegrampians ! 🌄 @henryalekna hiked up to #BorokaLookout bright and early for this stunning #sunrise and panoramic views over #HallsGap and #LakeBellfield . Three hours from @visitmelbourne , this might be one of the best lookouts in the national park, as it’s only a short walk from the carpark, and has two viewing platforms to choose from. Pack a picnic with you and enjoy breakfast overlooking this dreamy landscape; that will certainly start your day right. #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #grampiansnationalpark #thegreatoutdoors #hikingadventures #travel
Jump in for a free ride at @ausoutbacknt ’s #BitterSprings . 💦 @justinschryver hopped aboard the gentle current down this stream of warm, thermal-fed waters inside #ElseyNationalPark , which is one of many amazing (and completely free!) natural spas in @tourismtopend. It’s pretty hard to leave this fun spot once you get started, so definitely stay a few nights at the local caravan park. Check out the scenic bushwalking trails in the park and the nearby #MatarankaThermalPool while you’re here. #seeaustralia #NTAustralia #tourismtopend #thegreatoutdoors #travel
“Let me take a closer look at you, darl.” 🧐 @bluedolphintour captured just how overWHALEmingly close these friendly giants often swim up to their boats during their #whalewatching tours. @queensland 's @visitfrasercoast becomes a sanctuary for these magnificent #humpbackwhales between July and November every year, as they travel past #HerveyBay to get to warmer waters up the coast. Add this to your must-do #wildlife encounter list right now. ✍️ #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #visitfrasercoast #whalesherveybay #underwaterphotography
“MINE! MINE! MINE!” 🤤 These #pelicans were just a teeny bit excited for lunch when @sara_jessiica saw them in @southaustralia ’s #Goolwa . Located on the beautiful @officialfleurieupeninsula , this river town is right at the mouth of @visitthemurray ’s #MurrayRiver , which makes it the perfect home for our birdlife. Have a pie at the historic pub in town, enjoy some handcrafted beers at @thesteamexchange brewery, or just chill by the beach and watch the birds fish for their lunch. #seeaustralia #southaustralia #fleurieupeninsula #travel #landscapephotography
“Come on! Let’s go shred some snow.” ⛷️ This #wombat didn’t want @milarandall to waste any time at @thredboresort , what a good host. Located in @visitnsw ’s @snowymountainsnsw , this #snow resort is home to #Australia ’s longest ski run and a buzzing alpine village. Ski and snowboard to your heart’s content, and keep an eye out for #wildlife that might be roaming around the mountain cheering you on. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #snowymountainsnsw #Thredbo #travel #naturephotography
Two people spotted at Two People’s Bay, can’t say we’re surprised. 😜 @withsaltypassports enjoyed a #beach day at this little slice of paradise in @westernaustralia , 45 minutes from #Albany . This nature reserve has two calm and secluded beaches and a scenic walking trail around the rocky headland, so you can be as active or as chilled as you like. Add this to your @australias_southwest trip for some sun, sea and serenity. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiassouthwest #thegreatoutdoors #travel
“Right this way to the cellar door, guys.” 🍷 This helpful local showed @lizziegoodfellow and her mates around @mount_majura_vineyard , a boutique winery and vineyard just 20 minutes from @visitcanberra. You can sample the extensive wine range produced right here on-site in a seated tasting session, and add on a cheese plate or regional tasting plates to accompany the wine. The best part is that you can camp overnight in the vineyard (yep, you read that right), in a @nakedcubbyco 'glamp' that includes a breakfast hamper. Cheers to that! #seeaustralia #restaurantaustralia #visitcanberra #canberra #travel #wildlifephotography
Full sail ahead! ⛵⛵⛵ @hamiltonislandraceweek is currently in full swing on @hamiltonisland and the weather couldn't be more perfect for it, as captured by @saltydingomedia here. As one of the world’s most famous yachting events, this corner of @whitsundaysqld is filled with a fun week of sailing and festivities. Cheer on the competitors as they sail on the #GreatBarrierReef , enjoy lunches and dinners presented by celebrity chefs, and just soak in the @queensland sunshine and fantastic party atmosphere before it ends on 24 August. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #lovewhitsundays #hamiltonisland #HIRW #travel
"Keep going... keep going... Hey, I didn't say stop!" 🤤 @koalakrusader visited this cheeky #koala at @currumbinsanctuary on @queensland ‘s @destinationgoldcoast , where the koalas are certainly super spoiled. Get up close and personal with native Aussie animals, and meet a koala joey through the 'koala nursery experience.' You'll get to learn more about these fluffy creatures from the keepers, and take home a photo of you cuddling an adult koala. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #wearegoldcoast #wildlifephotography #travel
