Today we’re daydreaming of a tropical getaway to @queensland’s #daydreamisland. 💭 lucky for us, @daydreamislandresort officially reopened over the weekend, with rooms overlooking @whitsundaysqld’s sparkling blue ocean, in the heart of @gbrmarinepark. spend the day in the pool sipping cocktails from the swim-up bar, go snorkelling right off the beach on the fringing reef, and watch a movie under the stars at the outdoor cinema. the island is truly what (day)dreams all made of! our tip: don’t miss the star attraction, living reef, a coral lagoon that wraps around the main resort building and has an underwater observatory, so you can get up close to the colourful marine life and even hand-feed the friendly baby stingrays.😍 #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #lovewhitsundays #greatbarrierreef #travel

Soft lighting + great angle = perfect selfie ✅ 🐨🤳🏻 jarrah, one of the 36 koalas who call @queensland’s @paradisecountrygc home, has clearly nailed this shot. only 25 minutes from the @destinationgoldcoast cbd, you can experience everything from meeting native #wildlife to watching a stockman show and learning how to throw a boomerang on the farm. tip: stay a couple of nights at the onsite farmstay, you’ll get exclusive access to join in activities like egg-collecting, animal feeds, cow-milking and roasting marshmallows around the campfire - all the fun things to immerse yourself in an authentic farm experience.

#broome doesn’t mess around when it comes to sunsets.🌅 @lottymack “headed straight to #cablebeach to see what all the fuss is about” when she visited this part of @westernaustralia and she certainly wasn’t disappointed. watching the #sunset on the endless sandy stretch of this #beach is a must-do on any trip to @australiasnorthwest, which really showcases the natural beauty of @thekimberleyaustralia. tip: make this experience extra special with a sunset camel ride with @broomecamelsafaris, @redsuncamels or @sundownercameltours.

🎶 do you wanna build a snowman? ⛄ @devilsatcradle spotted these tassie devils making the most of @tasmania’s cooler weather, and it looks #snow much fun. this #wildlife sanctuary is located on the edge of @visitcradlecoast’s cradle mountain national park, and conducts conservation programs for #tasmaniandevils, spotted-tailed quolls and eastern quolls. you can visit both day and night, as nocturnal animals tend to be more active in the evening. book the ‘after dark feeding tour’ to see them in action, and experience a rare up-close viewing of tasmanian devils in a group feeding situation – it’s quite a spectacular sight!

Let us show you a hole new world at @southaustralia’s #umpherstonsinkhole 🌳 @michaelwaterhousephotography recently visited this lush #sunkengarden in the @tourism_mount_gambier region, where it used to be a limestone cave until the top of the chamber collapsed downwards. it is now a stunning garden open for public visits, with viewing platforms at the top of the sinkhole and lovely terraces within the hole behind the hanging vines. tip: stay around till sunset and watch the resident colony of possums come into the garden to feed on the plants and fruit.

“swim along, guys. giant coming through!” 🐠 @chrisjansenimages and @liveningaloo captured this incredible scene of a #whaleshark swimming amongst the colourful fish in @westernaustralia’s #ningalooreef. swimming with these gentle giants is a must-do when in @australiascoralcoast, as they journey to @visitningaloo to feed on plankton in the area between march and august every year. and, yes, this is how close you can get to them! 🤯 tip: stay at @luxurylodgesofaustralia’s @salsalisningaloo and get transfers to and from the boat launch site, and come back to a luxury beachfront eco-tent to make this trip even more memorable.

Found: the perfect spot to relax after a day out exploring @ausoutbacknt 🛁 @kingscanyon certainly knows how to pamper their guests! located in @visitcentralaus, the resort is only 15 minutes from the majestic #kingscanyon, and a four-hour drive from #uluru, making it the perfect base to explore this part of outback #australia. the ‘deluxe spa rooms’ are nestled in the rugged bush setting of the resort, and the spacious spa baths come with stunning views of a beautiful rock escarpment. brb, booking ourselves a room right now.

We certainly don’t mind these monday blues from @westernaustralia 💙 @_kassielee spent the day with “nothing but sunshine, sand and the sea” at @australiasgoldenoutback’s #whartonbeach, which sounds simply divine. this white sand #beach inside #capelegrandnationalpark is only an hour’s drive from #esperance, and the sand is so fine that it squeaks when you walk on it! bring a surfboard as it’s one of the most popular surfing spots in the region, and keep an eye out for the pod of dolphins that frequently join surfers in the waves.

Bobby has successfully grown his first beard, and we like it! 🧔🏻 @wildthylacine spotted this dapper #koala on @queensland's @thisismagneticisland, which is an easy 20-minute ferry ride from @townsvillenorthqueensland. there are plenty of opportunities to see koalas in the wild on the island, namely on the #fortswalk walking track, which leads you to historic wwii fortifications and infrastructure. tip: keep your eyes up and be patient, it could be your lucky day.

Pastel colours look incredible on you, @ausoutbacknt. 💓 according to @__juna1993, she “couldn’t go home without seeing #uluru”, and we’re so glad that she got to experience this magical #sunrise. @exploreuluru is exceptionally stunning at dusk and dawn, as reflections from the rock and clouds in the sky enhance the vivid colours. check out the five designated viewing areas around the @seeuluru national park so you can appreciate its beauty from every angle - perfect motivation for getting up early; you’ll have more time to enjoy this part of @visitcentralaus too. 😉

“ocean or pool?” lucky for these swimmers, they can have both at @visitbondibeach. 🙌🏻 @blackorange10 spotted this duo enjoying a sunday swim at @icebergsclub, which is possibly @sydney’s most instagrammed pool. for a small fee, you can opt for a serious workout in the lap pool or just enjoy the view and splash about in the adjacent kiddie pool. dry off in the sauna afterwards, then treat yourself to a refreshing drink and perhaps the seafood platter at the bistro above the pool. 😋 tip: the pool closes on thursdays for cleaning, but you can simply walk over for a swim at the #beach instead if you rock up to an empty pool.

Luxury glamping tents in the middle of the outback? sign us up 🖐️ @kingscreekstation’s secluded ‘dreamtime escarpment’ accommodation is only half an hour from @ausoutbacknt’s majestic #kingscanyon, where you can experience a classic @visitcentralaus #outback setting while enjoying the glamourous trimmings of air-conditioning, bathrobes and a private pool. the accommodation package includes a classic self-cook bush barbecue dinner and drinks package - we’ll certainly be enjoying that while watching the sunset on the deck. 🌅
