"Alright alright, give me a minute!" - When the water's a tad chilly and you're not quite ready to get your feathers wet! A day at the beach in #Exmouth isn't complete with an #emu or two, just like this one snapped by @kyliessv. This glorious spot is the aptly named #TurquoiseBay, which is part of the @australiascoralcoast region of @westernaustralia. The water at this time of year is indeed a little nippy, but give it a couple of months and it'll warm up - or just take a deep breath and brave it!

Feel like diving into this pool? We don't blame you! This is the #Bondi @icebergsclub, which is located at the southern end of the famous #BondiBeach in @sydney. This iconic venue is one of #Sydney's many ocean pools, which means they're filled with seawater from the adjacent ocean. At Icebergs, waves often crash onto the rock wall and spill over into the pool, which can make for an extra-invigorating experience!

Does water get any clearer than this?! 💦 These are the sparkling waters of #WhitehavenBeach in the @whitsundaysqld. These two lucky people got the whole sandbar to themselves by the looks of things, which isn't out of the question if you visit outside of peak periods. Regardless, Whitehaven Beach itself is a glorious seven kilometres long, so there's plenty of powdery-white sand to go around.

"Wake me up when Monday's over..." - That all too familiar feeling at the start of the week 😴 @fredibh spotted this #koala catching forty winks at the @australianreptilepark in @visitnsw. Evidently, there are more than just reptiles at this wildlife park in @ourcentralcoast; be sure to pop in the visit the koalas, dingoes, kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, platypus and Tasmanian Devils. Oh, and don't forget the pygmy possums! Photo: @fredibh #newsouthwales #centralcoastNSW #travel #explore #photooftheday

Sending you a virtual postcard from @seeuluru in the @ausoutbacknt - wish you were here! You'll hardly be able to put your camera down when you first clap eyes on this sacred monolith in @visitcentralaus, but we recommend taking a moment to look out from behind the lens and breathe it in. This phenomenal landmark is a special sacred site for the local Aboriginal people, so it's important to be respectful of the signs and only take photos from afar or from designated areas up close.

What an impressive entrance! This the walkway to the Kazu Pearl Farm on Friday Island in the #TorresStrait. You can take a guided tour of this historic yet fully operational pearl farm, where you'll learn about the cultivation, seeding and harvesting of the oyster (did you know it can take two years to grow a pearl?!). You'll also get to indulge in a Japanese-style seafood lunch overlooking the magnificent blue waters of the Torres Strait. Photo: @_markfitz #explore #travel #wanderlust #photooftheday #travelgram

It's a tough gig being Australia's most adorable animal, but it's all in a day's work for George the #wombat at the @australianreptilepark! This little fella may not be little anymore, but he's clearly still stealing hearts - he's officially taken out the title of 'Australia's most adorable animal' in an online poll by @experienceoz. After a rough start to life, George has been hand-raised by @timswildlife and the team at the #AustralianReptilePark in @visitnsw. As you can see here, he's still a big baby - but can you really blame him for enjoying a warm bottle of milk and a tummy tickle?!

What a stunning carpet of colour! This gorgeous display is at @mountainviewfarmtilbatilba in @visitnsw's @eurobodalla region. According to @davey_rogers who visited recently, the owner of this picturesque property in Tilba Tilba has planted a field of paper daisies here, with the sole purpose of "making people happy". This type of paper daisy, also known as an everlasting, is actually native to Western and South Australia, but they happen to look particularly pretty on this property overlooking Little Dromedary Mountain. #newsouthwales #travel #explore #wanderlust #photooftheday

"We'll need to raise this tripod a little, can you lend me a paw?" - The #kangaroos of #CapeHillsborough take their photography rather seriously! Photographers who set up to capture the sunrise at this beautiful beach in the @visitmackay region are quite often greeted by kangaroos and wallabies, who'll hop up to say g'day and check out their equipment. If you're looking for an up close wildlife encounter, be sure to add this part of @queensland to your bucket list.

Today, we're going hiking in beautiful @westernaustralia 👌 The #BibbulmunTrack stretches for over 1,000 kilometres but you can experience the highlights in just four days. @walkintoluxury runs an abridged version of this sensational walk through the majestic wilderness of the Great Southern region of @australiassw. As you may be able to tell from this photo, you're not likely to bump into many other people here, but don't worry - the local wildlife will keep you company!

Hold onto your hats, you're about to witness the thundering #WallamanFalls in @queensland! This magnificent cascade is, in fact, the highest single drop waterfall in Australia, at a towering 268 metres. You'll find this incredible waterfall in the Girringun National Park, around 2.5 hours' drive from @townsvillenorthqueensland. It's the ideal stop if you're taking a road trip between Townsville and the tropical city of #Cairns. Photo: @robertdowniephotography #thisisqueensland #explore #travel #wanderlust #photooftheday

Look closely - that's no ordinary whale tail! Yesterday, guests on board @whalewatchingsydney were treated to a visit from Australia's most legendary marine mammal - #Migaloo the white whale. This unique creature has been holidaying off Australia's eastern coastline over the winter months for several years now. Given his all-white colouring, he doesn't exactly blend in - which makes him easy to spot! You might be lucky enough to see Migaloo during Australia's whale watching season, which spans for roughly six months of the year from late May until the end of November.
