Ever wondered what an Australian airport lounge looks like? 😎 Your time will be well spent waiting for your seaplane to depart Whitehaven Beach in the @whitsundaysqld; although the only trouble is, once you arrive here you'll never want to leave! You can access this stunning beach in @queensland via helicopter, seaplane, or boat - whatever takes your fancy. A well-kept secret is that #WhitehavenBeach actually backs onto a @qldparks campground, which costs just $6.35AUD per person per night. Not a bad price for a slice of paradise!

Welcome to #AlligatorGorge in @southaustralia - but don't worry, there are no alligators here! Hidden deep in the Mount Remarkable National Park which is part of the Southern Flinders Ranges, this colossal chasm was carved over millions of years by water movement. There's a walking trail here so you can access the gorge, and if you visit at the right time of day, you'll get a beautiful red glow emanating from the ancient rock walls.

Splash! 💦 Today, we're cooling off at Kellys Falls in @visitnsw. The Kellys Falls picnic area is a network of walking trails, cascading waterfalls and scenic lookouts within Garawarra State Conservation Area, around halfway between @sydney and @visitwollongong. If you're into birdwatching, it's particularly well-known for its prolific local bird population; satin bowerbirds, honeyeaters and wattlebirds are attracted by the range of native flowers here. Pack your binoculars! Photo: @watzac #ilovesydney #newsouthwales #explore #travel #wanderlust

"Just a small salad for lunch today...." - The #quokkas on @rottnestislandwa never seem to look grumpy, even when they're on a diet! Often referred to as "the happiest animal on earth", these cheerful marsupials always seem to have a smile on their adorable little faces. There's a big colony of them living on #RottnestIsland off the coast of @experienceperth in @westernaustralia, which you can reach via a short ferry trip with @rottnestexpress, @sealinkrotto or @rottnestfastferries.

Is there a more iconic Australian scene than this one? When visiting @sydney, it's essential to take a stroll through the @rbgsydney for incredible views of the @sydneyoperahouse and the #SydneyHarbourBridge . There's a historic spot here called Mrs Macquarie's Chair, which is known as one of the best vantage points in #Sydney . This historic stone chair was carved out of a rock ledge for Governor Lachlan Macquarie's wife Elizabeth way back in the 18th century - apparently, she was known to visit the area and sit enjoying the panoramic views of the harbour. Can you blame her?! Photo: @eveyenia #ilovesydney #explore #travel #wanderlust #photoftheday

This is what the @destinationgoldcoast looks like from 77 floors up! You can experience this epic view if you're in town for the @GC2018 next year; the final major release of tickets is at midday AEDT today so don't miss out. The staggering scene pictured here is the view from the Q1 Observation Deck at @skypoint_au in Surfers Paradise. The Observation Deck is on the 77th floor and is Australia's only beachside observation deck. From 230 metres up, you'll be blown away by the epic 360-degree views that stretch all the way from the surf to the hinterland. Trust us, this is seriously Instagrammable stuff!

Who would have thought that one of Australia's most famous #surfing beaches would have hardly a soul in sight?! That's the beauty of Australia's beaches; there are so many to choose from, they're often deserted. This famous stretch of sand is #BellsBeach in the @visitgreatoceanroad region of Victoria, which is the home of the #RipCurlPro surfing contest each April. @deepwanderer describes Bells as "a bit of a detour but well worth the visit." Especially if you're lucky enough to score the whole place to yourself! Photo: @deepwanderer #visitgreatoceanroad #visitvictoria #travelgram #explore #travel

There's a lot to love about #BrunswickHeads in @visitnsw 💚 This lovely seaside village lies at the mouth of the picturesque Brunswick River, just a short drive north of Byron Bay. The river is perfect for kayaking, fishing and strolling alongside, plus there are glorious ocean beaches too so you get the best of both worlds. You can take a guided kayak tour of this enchanting river system; several local companies offer tours, including @byroncruises, Go Sea Kayaks and Byron Bay Adventure Tours.

Sunday mornings are for sleeping in... 😴 This is Iris the baby #wombat - isn't she beautiful?! She lives on @flindersisland in @tasmania and is being hand-raised by the devoted Kate Mooney, aka. 'The wombat lady of Flinders Island'. Kate fell in love with #FlindersIsland as a teenager, then visited again at age 20 and never left. She now plays mum to the island's orphaned wombats, devoting endless hours to hand-raising and releasing them on her 40-hectare patch of paradise on this beautiful rugged island in @northerntasmania. What a heart-warming story! Photo: @flindersisland #discovertasmania #northerntasmania #wildlifephotography #travel

"Will you come for a swim with me - pleeease?" - Oh go on, how could you resist that face?! 😍 @danavilaphotography bumped into this gorgeous sea lion while on a cruising expedition with @eco_abrolhos in @australiascoralcoast. When you arrive in this insanely beautiful part of @westernaustralia, it shouldn't take much convincing to get in the water - it's crystal clear and offers incredible diving and snorkelling. Oh, and don't forget about the adorable locals! Photo: @danavilaphotography #justanotherdayinwa #australiascoralcoast #wildlifephotography #explore #travel

Endless shades of blue on the #GreatBarrierReef 💙 This section of @queensland's @gbrmarinepark is known as #HardyReef , and you'll find it off the coast of the @whitsundaysqld. Several local boat tour companies have pontoons at Hardy Reef; it's packed with marine life and coral and is known as an excellent spot for snorkelling and diving. It's a fairly solid boat trip from Airlie Beach on the mainland, so if you're keen to maximise your reef time, try the 'Reefsleep' experience with @cruisewhitsundays where you'll get to sleep under the stars on the pontoon and have the reef all to yourself when you wake up.

Hip hip, hooray - it's Imogen the #koala 's third birthday! 🐨 🎉 You may remember @symbiozoo's famous koala from when she was a baby; she hit the big time when some rather adorable footage of her munching on gum leaves in a fluffy white basket went viral. Now, she's all grown up, and she's still melting the hearts of visitors to this wildlife park near @sydney. So if you're heading to @visitnsw, make sure you pop down and wish her a happy birthday in person - she'd love to meet you! Video: @symbiozoo #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #wildlife #travel #explore
