“MINE! MINE! MINE!” 🤤 These #pelicans were just a teeny bit excited when @sara_jessiica fed them a fresh fish for lunch 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

"The best way to start a day is with a burning sunrise." 🌅 We totally agree with @josh_burkinshaw on that! Located on the @visitnsw south coast, @eurobodalla 's #BatemansBay has plenty of picture-perfect beaches to watch the #sunrise from. Spend your morning swimming or surfing, then head to @jjatthemarina or @starfish_deli for a seafood feast to get a taste of the fresh produce from the region. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #eurobodalla #thegreatoutdoors #travel


@exploreuluru really turns the magic on at night. ✨ @rickkelly15 recently visited the #FieldofLight art exhibition at this @ausoutbacknt icon, where 50,000 solar-powered stems light up after sunset and glow throughout the night. Created by artist #BruceMunro , this art piece was inspired by the majestic #Uluru , and will be on display until 31 December 2020. Book a tour to walk through the lights at your own pace, or treat yourself to a #SoundsofSilence three-course dinner overlooking this view, it’ll make your @visitcentralaus trip extra special. #seeaustralia #NTaustralia #redcentreNT #naturephotography #travel

There’s snow way this road doesn't lead to a magical castle. ❄️ @lisamilne recently visited @thegrampians where the snowfall has turned it into a #winter wonderland straight out of a fairytale. A three-hour drive from @visitmelbourne , #GrampiansNationalPark has an incredible mountain landscape dotted with small towns like #HallsGap , Dunkeld and Stawell, perfect for a road trip. Stay at the @dulccabins treehouse to fully immerse yourself in nature, or treat yourself to a mountain view room at @royalmailhotel for a deluxe hideaway. #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #grampians #snow #thegreatoutdoors #hikingadventures #travel

First day back at the gym after a three-week holiday like... 😩 Puluck was busted slacking off her pull-ups by a keeper at @oakvalewildlifepark - Don’t worry, Puluck, we’ve all been there. This #wildlife park in @visitnsw ’s @portstephens is home to 10 koalas and other native animals like Tassie devils, wombats and dingoes, as well as some farm animals. Spend the day learning about them at the keeper talks, and book a ‘koala encounter’ for a behind-the-scenes tour and take home a photo with a #koala as the perfect souvenir. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #PortStephens #wildlifephotography #thegreatoutdoors #weeklyfluff #travel

You seem a bit on edge there, @southaustralia 🙊 @tripinavan recently visited the impressive #BundaCliffs , which is a part of the #NullarborPlain and the world’s longest uninterrupted stretch of sea cliffs. This part of @eyrepeninsula also resembles a whale nursery, as Southern Right Whales swim through here during their annual migration between May and October. Bring a pair of binoculars and pack a picnic to enjoy at the #HeadofBight and see how many of them you can spot. #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #eyrepeninsula #travel #thegreatoutdoors

“I take a nap riiiiight here.” 😴 @keeper_andrew spotted this #kangaroo using his mate as a bed, and it does look pretty comfy! These roos live in @australianreptilepark amongst other native Aussie animals, just an hour from @sydney on @visitnsw ’s beautiful @visitcentralcoastnsw This #wildlife park has a free-roaming area for their kangaroos so you can get up-close and personal with them, and even hand-feed them with the roo food supplied. Don’t worry about getting sit on though, they (mostly ) only do that to each other. 😉 #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #wildlifephotography #travel #weeklyfluff

How’s this for a VIP arrival? 🚁😎 @jasoncharleshill spent his time on @heronisland “snorkelling and diving with turtles, rays and countless species of fish”, which sounds like the perfect @queensland holiday to us! This island in the @southerngreatbarrierreef is just off the coast of @gladstoneregion , and you can get here in style by boat, seaplane or helicopter. Stay at the resort on-site and take your time swimming, snorkelling and diving in this part of the #GreatBarrierReef #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #southerngreatbarrierreef #gladstoneregion #travel

Spotted: Kangaroo mob on the run after they were busted covering themselves in white paint. 🏳️ Oh, never mind, @panoramagardenestate can confirm that their snow-white fur is actually all natural. This #wildlife sanctuary on the @officialmorningtonpeninsula started out with two albino kangaroos onsite, the duo has now grown into a mob of seven, and there are currently two joeys in pouches as well. Only an hour’s drive from @visitmelbourne , you can pre-book a tour to visit these roos and other native and farm animals in the sanctuary. The tours also include a walk-through of waterfalls, wetlands and rainforest in the garden, nature-lovers rejoice! #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #findyourwaymorningtonpeninsula #travel #wildlifephotography

#RainbowBeach seems like a good spot to paddle into the weekend. 🏖️ @epicworld_photography enjoyed a glorious winter’s day in @visitsunshinecoast , where the skies are blue and the weather is still super beach-friendly. Take a SUP boarding tour with @epicoceanadventures to discover the marine life in this part of @queensland , or a surfing class with @rainbowbeachsurfschool or @rainbow_beach_learn_to_surf to ride with the locals. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #visitsunshinecoast #visitgympieregion #travel

“Hey there, you come here often?” 😏 @exceptionalkangarooisland spotted this slick #koala showing off its best side during one of their tours on @authentickangarooisland Despite its name, this island in @southaustralia has more than just kangaroos; you’ll see plenty of koalas, wallabies and seals too. Joining a #wildlife tour is certainly your best chance to experience close-up encounters with the furry locals, and you get to learn all about their habitat and fun facts from the tour guide - it’s a no-brainer. #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #kangarooisland #authenticKI #weeklyfluff

Board meetings come with a side of adrenaline in #Broome 🌊 @chrisrogers went foilboarding with @ultimate_watersports at the #GoProCreatorSummit , a thrillingly awesome way to enjoy #CableBeach ’s turquoise water. This coastal town in @westernaustralia ’s @australiasnorthwest is a paradise for watersport lovers, hire a surfboard, SUP board, jet ski, or even a jetpack for all sorts of fun in the water. Our tip: Stay at the nearby @cablebeachclub , which is only a short stroll away, for maximum beach time. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #thegreatoutdoors #travel @gopro

Gather around for Jazzy’s air guitar solo, everybody! 🎸🎶 This little rockstar lives in @thekangaroosanctuary in #AliceSprings , where the dedicated team looks after injured, sick and orphaned #kangaroos they come across in @visitcentralaus This scratching technique isn't just for looking cool, it's also how kangaroos groom themselves. See them in action on a ‘guided sunset tour’ at the sanctuary between Tuesday and Friday; a must-do in the @ausoutbacknt , if you ask us. #seeaustralia #ntaustralia #redcentrent #travel #wildlifephotography #weeklyfluff

Rise and shine, you don’t want to miss a #Bondi sunrise! 🌅 @seeshots got up extra early for this stunning @sydney #sunrise , and we think it's definitely worth it. Start your day right with a stroll along #BondiBeach early in the morning, and you might just be treated to a spectacular sky show like this. The only way to top it off is a nice cup of coffee and a big brekky at @lushonbondi , @speedoscafe or @triobondi along the way - Good morning, indeed. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #bondibeach #travel

Race you to the ski fields! ⛷️❄️ Stephen Grenfell captured this magical scene of #kangaroos crossing a snowy field north of #Goulburn in @visitnsw , which certainly isn’t something you’d see every day. About three hours from @sydney , it’s quite rare to get this much #snow in this part of #NewSouthWales , so the roos would have to go further south if they want to be on a proper ski trip. Who knows? We might end up seeing them at the runs at @thredboresort or @perisher_resort in the @snowymountainsnsw 😉 #seeaustralia #wildlifephotography #winter #onlyinaustralia #weeklyfluff

That’s a rather swimpressive pool you got there, @hamiltonisland ! 🏊🏼‍♀️ @whitsundaysphotography spent the day at the island’s #SailsPool , which might just be the most photogenic pool in the @whitsundaysqld ! Jump in and enjoy spectacular views over the beach and the turquoise waters of the #GreatBarrierReef , which look extra special at sunrise and sunset. Work up an appetite doing a few laps, then walk over to the #SailsRestaurant next door for an indulgent meal made of @queensland produce. BRB, booking our flights over now! #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #lovewhitsundays #hamiltonisland #travel

Doesn’t it succ when you pick the wrong tree? 🐨🌵 Don’t worry, according to @cactuscountry this #koala is a frequent visitor to their garden and was just briefly trying out this giant #cactus before returning to its usual tree of choice. Located around three hours from @visitmelbourne , this cactus garden in the @visitthemurray region has more than 4,000 species of cacti and succulents, you can spend a whole day exploring all the walking trails trying to see them all. Our tip: Don’t leave without trying their cactus cake and cactus ice cream at the restaurant. 😋 #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #visitthemurray #cactuscountry #wildlifephotography #travel

Now you know why it’s called #SwanRiver 😮💡 @saifullar spotted these swans checking out their namesake in @destinationperth , as the sun set over #MatagarupBridge This photogenic spot in @westernaustralia ’s capital is popular with local walkers and runners, who often do circuits around the river before or after work. Put your sneakers on and join in, or book a river cruise with @captaincookcruiseswa if you prefer to take in the views at a slower pace. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #thisiswa #seeperth #sunsetlover #wildlifephotography

🎶 I like to move it, move it. 🎶 @iron_explorer came across this groovy #wombat who couldn’t contain its excitement to finally scratch the itch of hiking through @tasmania ’s #CradleMountain This natural wonderland in @visitcradlecoast has a big population of wombats, pademelons and Tasmanian devils, and you’ll most likely see them wandering around at dawn and dusk. Surely you wouldn't mind sharing the walking track with such adorable fellow hikers. 😉 #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #cradlecoast #wildlife #dailyfluff #animal

Brace yourself, we’re a-boat to get to one of @queensland ’s best man-made dive sites. 🐠 @swaller4 recently visited the #TangaloomaWrecks on #MoretonIsland , which is a 75-minute cruise from @visitbrisbane 15 vessels were deliberately sunk to form a breakwall for small boats in this area, and they’re now home to colourful corals and over 100 species of fish. A 20-minute walk from @tangaloomaislandresort , the resort can organise a guided snorkelling or diving tour for you, so you get taken to the best spots and might even see a dolphin or dugong swimming by! #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #brisbaneanyday #Tangalooma #viewfromabove #travel

When the queue is long but you skip through it swimmingly with a fast pass. 🐟 @nushfreedman followed a #mantaray through a school of fish in @westernaustralia ’s #Exmouth , which, in his words, was “one of my favourite memories and one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.” You can swim with these playful creatures year-round along the @australiascoralcoast , join a snorkelling or diving tour with @sail_ningaloo , @ningalooreefdive or @ningaloocoralbay for your best chance to experience a special moment like this. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #coralcoast #underwaterphotography #travel

It’s hard to pick a side, but #BogeyHole is looking pretty convincing! 🌊 @saraholmberg enjoyed a dip in this picturesque ocean pool in @citynewcastle au, a coastal town two hours north of @sydney This swimming hole has a fantastic vantage point of the @visitnsw coastline, and is right near #KingEdwardPark where you can enjoy a scenic picnic. Our tip: Visit during low tide for a calmer swim, or simply relax and float on your back. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #newcastle #thegreatoutdoors #travel

The locals really know the best spots to watch the #sunrise 🤩 @glanzpunkt saw this #wallaby at @visitmackay ’s #CapeHillsborough , a #beach in @queensland that’s known for special #wildlife encounters like this. The local roos and wallabies love hanging out along the shoreline in the morning, feeding on mangrove seed pods and hopping about. Book a @rangersam_ ‘sunrise with the wallabies tour’ to see them up close - It’s a magical combo that will start your day right. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #meetmackayregion #travel #wildlifephotography

Any guesses on why it’s called #BlueHaven ? 🤔 @ashleydobson enjoyed a beautiful day at this aptly named #beach in @westernaustralia ’s #Esperance , where the water is indeed all shades of blue. Walk down a steep winding staircase to get to the soft white sand and surrounding flat rocks, both are perfect for a lie-down and a picnic. As you swim out to the ocean, don’t forget to look back at the gorgeous coastline of this hidden gem in @australiasgoldenoutback #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #goldenoutback #nature #thegreatoutdoors

Wait for it… wait for it… 👀 @glanzpunkt caught this joey sneaking a peek through mum’s pouch at @queensland ’s #Beaudesert , a country town that’s an hour from @destinationgoldcoast Located in the @visitscenicrim region, you can enjoy a classic country pub experience at #TheRailwayHotel with a pie and a cold beer. Learn more about the history of the town at the Historical Museum in #JubileePark , and pack a picnic to enjoy in the park afterwards, you might see some kangaroos around! #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #sqcountry #scenicrim #kangaroo #travel

The only blues you need in your life. 💙 @tavishhhphoto enjoyed the secluded #FriendlyBeaches on a recent trip to @tasmania ’s #FreycinetNationalPark , where the water is clear and the sand is snow-white.

Camp at the beach campground, stay at @freycinetlodge , or splurge and treat yourself to @luxurylodgesofaustralia ’s @saffirefreycinet #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #eastcoasttasmania #luxurylodgesofaustralia #thegreatoutdoors #travel

When you know your baby is the cutest in town. 🥰 This proud #quokka mama and her little joey are locals on @westernaustralia ’s @rottnestislandwa , a ferry ride from @destinationperth or #Fremantle with @rottnestexpress Joeys are born around February to April and remain in the pouch until August or September, so keep an eye out for them if you're visiting the island during this time and brace yourself for cuteness overload! 📷: @novygram #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #rottnestisland #rottnestexpress #lovemyrotto #wildlifephotography #weeklyfluff #animalkingdom

You know the saying: After the rain, comes a full #LakeMcKenzie ! 😉 @yaaannnnnnn absolutely loved the colour of this perched lake on @fraserisland , which is fed entirely by rainwater. As one of the most popular natural attractions on @queensland ’s @visitfrasercoast , this #lake isn’t fed by streams and doesn’t flow to the ocean; the rainwater is retained by the sand and organic matter at the base instead. Walk along the soft white sand, take a swim in its incredibly pure water, and stick around till sunset to see how the light brings out the blues and greens of the water. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #visitfrasercoast #fraserisland #naturephotography #travel

Okay, ladies, now let’s get in formation. 👯 Keeper @reneehowell18 saw this #koala squad ready for their music video shoot at @wildlifesydneyzoo , must be a fierce tune! You can visit this girl band at @sydney ’s @darlingharbour , and learn more about these fluffy critters at the daily ‘koala talk’. Our tip: Start your day with the ‘breakfast with koalas’ experience, where you get to enjoy breakfast next to the koala enclosure, go on a guided highlights tour, and go home with a koala photo. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #wildlifephotography #travel #weeklyfluff

Found: The ultimate top spot to watch the #sunset in @australias_southwest 🌄 @hilaryl_ hiked up to #CastleRock ’s #GraniteSkywalk , a suspended walkway on a huge granite outcrop overlooking #PorongurupNationalPark This @westernaustralia national park has a unique range of 12 peaks that’s home to many Aussie plants and animals, just a 45-minute drive from #Albany Our tip: Wear your best hiking shoes for this return walk, as you need to scramble over some rocks and climb a ladder to get to the top; we guarantee the view is well worth it. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiassouthwest #thegreatoutdoors #travel

“Hmm... looks a bit small, how do humans fit in there?” 🤔 @lelexplore saw this pair of #RainbowLorikeets carefully examining the @sydneyoperahouse at #sunset we think they will be pleasantly surprised when they get a closer look. 😂 This colourful species of #parrot is commonly seen around @sydney and most parts of @visitnsw @australianreptilepark even has a dedicated ‘lorikeet feeding time’ every day. Make your way up @visitcentralcoastnsw to get up close with these birds and learn more about them from the keepers. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #sydneyoperahouse #wildlifephotography #travel
