When your romantic photo gets bombed by a Maori Wrasse, it's just another day on the #GreatBarrierReef ! This rather large fish's name is Wally, and he's a long-term resident of Moore Reef in @tropicalnorthqueensland. The team at @sunloverreefcruises refer to Wally as "a local celebrity" - apparently, he often gets jealous when customers and photographers are interacting with other marine life and tries to steal the spotlight. What a poser! Photo: @sunloverreefcruises #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploreTNQ #travel #marinelife
Just heading out for a peaceful paddle at @lakecrackenback in the @snowymountainsnsw πŸ‘Œ This beautiful resort is nestled high in the mountains of @visitnsw , around 2.5 hours' drive from @visitcanberra. As you can see from this photo, this place is pretty darn picturesque - the mirrored lake is surrounded by towering mountains and pristine native bushland, and the chalets are literally suspended over the water. Yep. Photo: @bobbybense with @gypsylovinlight #seeaustralia #visitcanberra #newsouthwales #explore #travel

It's hard to tell whether this is a real #koala or a fluffy toy, right?! 🐨 This photogenic joey was more than happy to strike a pose for a group of visitors on tour with @kangarooislandodysseys in @southaustralia recently. #KangarooIslandOdysseys offers excellent guided tours of @authentickangarooisland catering to a range of interests; whether you're keen to spot wildlife, taste fresh food and local wine or explore the island's untamed wilderness (or maybe a combo of all three!).

Oh my, Surfers Paradise, don’t you look pretty in pink! This famous part of @destinationgoldcoast is known for its iconic skyscraper skyline, pumping nightlife and golden sand beaches. Indulge yourself at a fabulous five-star hotel like @qtgoldcoast , soak up coastal vibes at the beachfront markets and head to @hotagc , the newly revamped art centre, for a dose of culture and inspiration.

Stop everything, we've just found heaven on earth in @westernaustralia 😍 Yep, this place exists - it's called Two People's Bay, and you'll find it around 45 minutes' drive from #Albany in @australiassw. This particular path will lead you down to Little Beach, which is known for its striking turquoise water and powdery white sand; the kind that squeaks between your toes. Need we say more?!

"I smell the weekend... yay!" πŸ˜ƒ The #quokkas of @rottnestislandwa are always smiling about something - they are the happiest animals on earth, after all! @cambojones2020 came nose-to-nose with this friendly little guy whilst exploring #Rottnest , which is a 30-minute ferry trip from #Fremantle in @experienceperth. Cambo's quite the expert when it comes to capturing epic photos of these furry critters, so be sure to check out his profile if you're a #quokka fan!

When it comes to magical spots for a refreshing dip, Babinda Boulders in @tropicalnorthqueensland is up there with the best of them! Located south of #Cairns ; sculptural rocks, lush rainforest and crystal clear water all combine here to create a popular natural swimming hole. The fast flowing Babinda Creek always has cool water, even during mid-summer, making it a great place to cool off from the balmy @Queensland weather.

@Sydney locals prefer to enjoy their breakfast outdoors, and can you blame them? The magnificent view here is from #McMahonsPoint , which is a beautiful suburb overlooking the harbour on #Sydney 's north shore. It's super easy to get to this side of the harbour; you can jump on a ferry, bus or train from the CBD, or take a stroll across the Harbour Bridge. There are markets held at nearby Kirribilli on the weekends - check out @kirribillimarkets for dates. Photo: @glanzpunkt #seeaustralia #ilovesydney #sydneylocal #newsouthwales #explore #travel
Water clarity at @ladyelliotislandecoresort = out of this world! πŸ’¦ @jeremysomphoto was treated to the sight of this turtle cruising through the crystal clear waters of this tiny island in @queensland 's @southerngreatbarrierreef. If you're a fan of #turtles , add Lady Elliot to your bucket list. The waters surrounding this beautiful coral cay are literally packed with them, and they often come within less than a metre of you when you're snorkelling.

Peering out from a sea cave on the @eyrepeninsula πŸ‘€ Pictured here is Woolshed Cave; a colossal cavern carved by waves into the limestone and granite cliff. The rock formations here are collectively known as the Talia Caves, and you'll find them around 35 minutes' drive from the seaside town of Elliston in @southaustralia. Don't miss 'The Tub' - a large crater with a tunnel connection to the sea. Photo: @fogdot #seeaustralia #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #eyrepeninsula #travel #explore
Care to join us for a stroll along #ShorncliffePier at sunrise? You'll need to wake up early, but for a sky show like this one, it's worth the effort. This lovely spot can be found in @queensland 's capital city of @visitbrisbane , around 30 minutes' drive from the CBD. If you're up for a slightly longer walk, there's a fully paved path here known as Lovers Walk, which hugs the foreshore and offers beautiful water views.

Love is in the air today, there's no doubt about that! πŸ’• Introducing Tim Tam and Cara the #koalas ; they live at @rainforestation in @tropicalnorthqueensland. Although they're not romantically involved (to the best of our knowledge!), they are the best of friends - according to the staff here, they love to "catch up over a few eucalyptus leaves." You can visit these two at Rainforestation in #Kuranda , which is nestled high in @queensland 's Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, around 30 minutes from #Cairns .
