Sending you some lush green vibes from #LamingtonNationalPark 🌲🌿🍃 According to @reubennutt, it took “a few rainy hours” for him and his mates to get to #LarapintaFalls in this @queensland national park, but this epic view was well worth it! An hour’s drive from @destinationgoldcoast, this park is renowned for its beautiful #waterfalls and scenic walking trails, especially after rainy days when the waterfalls are at full force. If you want help finding the best spots, join @southerncross4wdtours or book a @aatkings tour, the guides will know exactly where to take you! #SeeAustralia #thisisqueensland #WeAreGoldCoast #travel #thegreatoutdoors

Newsflash: it’s been scientifically validated that hugging trees is good for lowering stress levels… no wonder #koalas are so chilled out ALL the time 🐨! @erinsmithaust saw this fluffy fellow having an afternoon nap in @southaustralia's #BrownhillCreek Recreation Park, a lovely bushland area located in suburban #Adelaide. Escape the city and get back to nature in this 51-hectare park with a stroll along the creek under the shade of majestic river red gums, you can even stay the night here at the #BrownhillCreekTouristPark so you can go wildlife spotting to your heart’s content. #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #wildlife #nature #explore at Brownhill Creek Recreation Park

Morning beach stroll, coffee in hand & baby #turtle spotting - that's just how they roll at @yardiehomestead! 🐢 ☕ 🙏 The team at this @westernaustralia coastal accommodation spot, which is adjacent to the #NingalooMarinePark, grabbed a coffee and strolled across to the beach bright and early when they came across this eruption of #turtle hatchlings. Seriously, what a way to start your day! This is not an unusual sight here on the @australiascoralcoast, the beaches directly in front of #YardieHomestead come alive with turtles nesting on the sand each October, then from February onwards these eggs start hatching. It’s coming to the tail end of hatching season at #Ningaloo now, but there's probably still a few weeks left to see a sight like this! 🤞 #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #coralcoast #nature #wildlife at Ningaloo Marine Park

So, this is what ‘happy hour’ looks like at @westernaustralia’s #LuckyBay 👅 @makyandmatt were not only impressed by the “friendly #kangaroos chilling on the #beach” in #CapeLeGrandNationalPark, they also loved that “the ocean has the nicest shade of blue you can imagine” and seeing “dolphins playfully jumping in the waves during sunrise” - it certainly sounds like a very special trip! Located under an hour’s drive from #Esperance, this beautiful spot in @australiasgoldenoutback never disappoints. TIP: Visit early in the morning as the kangaroos are often most active around dawn. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #goldenoutback #nature #wildlife at Lucky Bay

FYI: This Tassie devil burrito is for cuddling only, please refrain from biting 😍 @timswildlife explained that “young marsupials feel most comfortable when wrapped up tight, to mimic what it’s like in the pouch” and I’m sure you’d agree, the result is absolutely adorable! This little joey lives at @aussieark on @visitnsw’s @barringtoncoast, which is a #wildlife sanctuary dedicated to saving #Australia’s most endangered animals, the #TasmanianDevil. Book a ‘Devils in the Wild tour’ to get up close and personal with these cuties in their free-range enclosure, and learn more about the conservation work being done there. Depending on the time of year you visit, you might even get the chance to hold and interact with their newest devil joeys. 😉 #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #barringtoncoast #wildlifephotography #travel at Aussie Ark

Cameras at the ready! 📷 It’s all about the brilliant view when travelling on the #KurandaScenicRail. 🚋 @joshnicholson captured the stunning #StoneyCreekFalls here, which is one of the many picturesque sights you’ll see on this #train journey which passes through @tropicalnorthqueensland’s World Heritage-Listed #WetTropics. This @queensland railway winds its way from #Cairns to @kurandavillage, where there are wildlife parks, #rainforest tracks and local markets to explore. TIP: Treat yourself and book the ‘Gold Class’ package, you’ll sit in a handcrafted Victorian-inspired carriage with a dedicated host service, guaranteed to make the trip extra memorable! #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploreTNQ #Kuranda #naturephotography #travel at Stoney Creek Falls

“Catch me if you can!” According to his human carers, @kevintheroo here “loves a good game of hide-and-seek, and is really enjoying testing out his bounce now!” Kevin started living at @oceanviewecovillas on @authentickangarooisland after he was sadly found as an orphan joey last year, and is being hand-raised by the loving team there until he’s old enough to be released back into the wild. This luxury accommodation offering in @southaustralia will be opening in July, and you’ll likely see Kev hopping around when you come to stay, along with plenty of other Aussie #wildlife like wallabies, echidnas and native birds who call this 500-acre block of land home. #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #kangarooisland #authenticKI #weeklyfluff at Kangaroo Island

Serving up an absolute slice of paradise at @australias_southwest’s #GreenPool 👌 @mkz.imagery believes that “if you were to sum @westernaustralia up in a picture, this would be pretty close,” with all that sparkling clear water and soft sand. Located in #Denmark’s #WilliamBayNationalPark, this magical #beach is almost completely sheltered from the waves of the Great Southern Ocean by majestic rock boulders, which makes it the perfect place to slow down and chill out. It’s also a popular snorkelling beach, with loads of marine life to be discovered on the inner side of the rock breaks, so make sure you bring some snorkel gear to make the most of it. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiassouthwest #thegreatoutdoors #travel at Greens Pool, Denmark

We can feel the power of #BarronFalls just from looking at this shot 💪@_sarahlatham captured this stunning image from @skyrailcairns' newly opened #TheEdgeLookout, which, as you can clearly see, gives visitors an incredible vantage point of the #BarronGorgeNationalPark in @Queensland. The Wet Tropics World Heritage-Listed rainforest that you’re looking at here is located adjacent to the #GreatBarrierReef and stretches for over 500 kilometres along @tropicalnorthqueensland’s coastline. Not only is this endless sea of green an impressive sight to see, these forests are also the oldest continually surviving rainforests on earth 🌳. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploreTNQ #TheAncientRainforest #naturephotography at Barron Falls

Tonka and Diesel are acing this whole couple photoshoot thing! 😍Zookeeper @h.humphrey54 captured this adorable photo of this #echidna duo at @sydney’s @wildlifesydneyzoo, which is located right in the middle of @darlingharbour. These native creatures are fascinating to observe, especially during mealtime, as they use their long beaks and tongues to probe and suck up food. TIP: Check out the daily keeper talk in the Kangaroo Walk-About exhibit, on some days a lucky guest gets the opportunity to feed one of these spiky fellas with a large spoon - you never know, it could be you!🤞🏻 #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #wildlifephotography #travel #weeklyfluff at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo

This splash of colour at #CradleMountain has us totally feeling the #autumn vibes 🍂 This distinct golden hue that @beautyoftasmania captured is courtesy of 'Deciduous beech', or #fagus as it's more commonly known, #Australia's only cold climate winter-deciduous tree, that’s found nowhere else in the world but @Tasmania. Its annual foliage transformation from rust red through to brilliant gold has now started, attracting visitors and photographers from afar to capture this magical sight. TIP: Tassie’s alpine national parks, including @visitcradlecoast’s Cradle Mountain and Mt Field, are some of the best spots to see the fagus in all its glory, but get in quick, the next couple of weeks are when the colour is at its finest! #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #cradlecoast #nature #explore #travel at Cradle Mountain

@southaustralia’s natural pools really come in all shapes and forms! 💙 @all.about.adventure stumbled upon these #rockpools in the @eyrepeninsula region when they ventured around the corner from the famous #TaliaCaves to see what they could find. Located 2.5 hours from @port_lincoln, this coastal area has dramatic landscapes that have been crafted by the big waves over the years, so you’re likely to come across many more unexpected gems like these photogenic pools. Bring your caravan or tent and stay at the onsite campground for a few days to fully explore the coastline. #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #eyrepeninsula #travel #explore at Talia, South Australia, Australia
