Happy #turtletuesday! The local #turtles at @australiascoralcoast are not only friendly, they’re also rather photogenic 💙 @lizariee swam alongside this graceful sea turtle in #CoralBay recently, a small but fabulous, laid-back beach village located at the northern end of #NingalooReef in @westernaustralia. Named after the fact that its beautiful coral gardens lie just metres from the white sandy coastline, you can step straight off the beach to snorkel here. For an unforgettable experience, jump on a tour with @ningaloomarineinteractions or @coralbayeco to snorkel with resident giant manta rays, they can be seen year-round at this renowned #mantaray hotspot. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #coralcoast #nature #explore at Coral Bay, Western Australia


They're small, mischievous, and rather appropriately known as 'imps' As you can see, the carers at @tasmania's @wingswildlifepark certainly have their hands full with these recent, adorable additions! These little #Tassiedevils have no shortage of playtime and mischief-making at the @visitcradlecoast #wildlife park that houses and rehabilitates a range of native Tassie wildlife. Located just an hours drive from the coastal town of Devonport, the park is a great road trip for those arriving on the @spiritoftas ferry. #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #cradlecoast #travel #wildlifephotography at Wings Wildlife Park - Tasmania


Hands up if you want to be sitting here watching this @sydney #sunrise right now? ✋ @davidwesson called this dreamy #Bondi scene a “poolside stunner”, and rightly so, we say! After a refreshing early morning dip in the ocean or the Bondi @icebergsclub pool that’s pictured here, warm up with a coffee and breakfast at @porchandparlour, @harrysbondi or one of the many cafes in the area, they’re all delicious! The perfect way to spend a day exploring this popular #sydney beach suburb? The possibilities are endless really, but strolling along the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk and shopping on Gould Street are both must-dos. #seeaustralia #ilovesydney #newsouthwales #sydneylocal #bondibeach #travel at Bondi Icebergs


This spot right here is where we’d like to spend our day please. 💙 @matt.lambley was “swimming in paradise” at #CrystalPool on @norfolk.island, an #island paradise nestled in the Pacific Ocean, a mere 2.5-hour flight from @sydney or @visitbrisbane. This natural pool is located at the end of a rather challenging track on the southwestern end of #NorfolkIsland, but we promise the view is totally worth the journey to get there! TIP: Make sure you check the tide times at the local visitor information centre before heading out to the pool, as you can’t swim here on incoming or high tide. #seeaustralia #norfolkisland #travel #naturephotography #viewfromabove at Norfolk Island


We promise that this is really #MaianbarBeach and not an optical illusion! 🤯 @johndean_ can confirm that this jaw-dropping scene is indeed real and can be found in the southern @sydney village of #Maianbar, which is located around 1.5-hours from the CBD. Surrounded by the historic @royalnationalpark, this spot feels like its world away from busy city life, making it a popular choice with the locals. TIP: Bring your swimmers and wear your comfiest shoes, as you’ll go on a lovely bushwalk to reach the secluded bay. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #viewfromabove #travel at Maianbar, New South Wales, Australia


Pixie has been busy practising her new trick for the @kurandakoalagardens magic show... it’s not easy making your head vanish you know! 🐨 Relax everybody, we can confirm her head is still very much fully attached, Pixie was just busy checking on her #quokka mate, Berocca 😉 Located 40 minutes from #Cairns in the @kurandavillage, you can meet this fluffy magician in the flesh, and even cuddle up to her for a photo at this @tropicalnorthqueensland #wildlife park. #kurandakoalagardens also does great work in tracking @queensland’s koala population, learn more about this project from the keepers when you visit. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploreTNQ #wildlifephotography #travel at Kuranda Koala Gardens


Get ready guys, we’re in for a cracker @visitmelbourne #sunset! 🏠🌅 @will_mac89 ended his day the right way “down at the #BrightonBathingBoxes, with some peach-coloured clouds just after sunset.” Located 30 minutes from the CBD, you ’ll find 82 #bathingboxes lining the shores of #BrightonBeach here, each with a unique design or artwork, adding that extra pop of colour to the #beach. A beautiful spot to enjoy a seaside stroll, complete your experience here with coffee from @holygroundsbrighton, some pastries from @woodfrogbakery, or sit down for a nice dinner at @botticelli_ristorante. #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #visitmelbourne #dronestagram #viewfromabove at Brighton Bathing Boxes


A plunging waterfall in the middle of a lush #rainforest? Yes indeed, @tropicalnorthqueensland’s #NandroyaFalls looks exactly like it’s from the lost world 😮 No wonder @andrewwatsonphoto said this is “probably his favourite” @wettropicsqld #waterfall, which you can find just a two-hour drive from #Cairns. Located in @queensland’s #WooroonooranNationalPark, the picturesque Nandroya Falls Circuit is a 6.6-kilometre track, so you best wear your hiking boots and allow two to three hours for a return trip. Stay at the Henrietta Creek campground in the park if you want to spend a few days immersing yourself in the wilderness of this @athertontablelands region. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #athertontablelands #thegreatoutdoors #naturephotography at Nandroya Falls


Summer days done the right way at @sydney's @icebergsclub 🙏 @anthonyglick perfectly captured this iconic ocean pool ’s killer views, a spot where #Bondi locals love to go for a dip or simply lounge and soak up the relaxed vibes. The great news is that use of the pool is not exclusive to club members, anyone can swim in it for a small entry fee, which also includes access to the sauna. After a few laps, make sure you pop up to the bistro for a hearty lunch with panoramic views of #BondiBeach. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #Bondi #bondiicebergs #travel at Bondi Icebergs


The @gbrmarinepark stretches for over 2,300 kilometres along the coast of @queensland, which equals the size of around 70 million football fields! 🤯 It’s no wonder that @sammieandsunsets found this expansive and stunning view so breathtaking when she went on a scenic seaplane tour with @gsl_aviation. A bird’s-eye view really puts into perspective just how massive this natural wonder really is, and you can choose to fly from either #Cairns or #AirlieBeach in @whitsundaysqld. Make sure your camera is fully charged for the experience, it might just be one of the best window seats you’ll ever be in! #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #lovewhitsundays #GreatBarrierReef #lovethereef #travel at Great Barrier Reef


Sharing is caring! ♥️ It’s rather nice to see how well the @australianreptilepark’s #emu chicks, Huey and Louie, get along with resident #kangaroo joeys, Jack and Ollie, isn’t it? This @visitnsw #wildlife park is only an hour’s drive from @sydney on @visitcentralcoastnsw, and there are designated areas where animals get to roam free and mingle with both their furry or feathered neighbours and human visitors. TIP: You can also (kind of) share a meal with these guys, by packing a barbecue lunch and using the complimentary facilities in the picnic grounds... all while surrounded by friendly kangaroos. 😉 #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #centralcoastnsw #australianreptilepark #wildlifephotography #travel at Australian Reptile Park


In the mood for a colourful road trip? Steer your wheel towards #Broome in @westernaustralia! 🚗 The magical landscape is so captivating here that according to @theblondenomads: “we planned to stay in Broome for only a few days... and 2 weeks later we are still here!” Expect turquoise waters and rich red earth with beautiful pockets of rainforest along the coast in this part of @australiasnorthwest. Once you get into town, book a guided tour with @narlijia to see the mangrove, or a kayak tour with @broomeadventure to paddle with turtles and discover remote beaches. Yep, definitely sounds like you can easily spend a couple of weeks here 😉 #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiasnorthwest #naturephotography #travel at Broome, Western Australia
