Most Instagrammable Places in Australia

There is nothing quite like Australia, from pristine white sand beaches and turquoise waters, to bright orange desert with epic rock landforms to the incredible wildlife, Australia really has it all. If you’re planning a trip down under and you’re not sure where to go, hopefully my list of the most instagrammable places in Australia will give you some inspiration. I have divided the best photo spots in Australia by state so that you can easily work out your own itinerary.

Most Instagrammable Spots in New South Wales, Australia.

1) Sydney Opera House

One of the most photographed places in Australia is the iconic Sydney Opera House. Thanks to its unique shape and positioning on Sydney Harbour there are lots of different angles to capture one of the most famous buildings in the world. My personal favourites are from the Sydney Opera Bar and Kirribilli.

I Sydneed you! 😍🌹 :::: @alexwandr and I met around 3.5 years ago in the city of love 🇫🇷 where we worked together for a startup (a music learning platform). I was the community manager (social media/content creation) and Alex coded the Android app 📱. I managed to convince Alex to star on our YouTube channel with me, covering popular songs on guitar/ukulele/piano 🎸. Our shared love of @taylorswift, emo bands from our teen years, Pokemon Go and fantasy books brought us together and now we’re travelling the world! 🎵🥰 :::: How cute are these matching couple tee`s by @husband__wifey? They recently launched their online shop and have a number of different adorable designs. If you're looking for an original gift idea for your partner then check them out (link in bio)!

2) Bondi Icebergs Pool

Have you even been to Sydney if you don’t visit Bondi Beach and the beautiful Bondi Icebergs Pool?! You can easily snap a shot here from the road just above the pool.

Can't believe I live within walking distance of this place 😍 I would love to swim here but not during winter, seriously these people are cray cray ❄. . Would you go swimming in @icebergsclub with the waves crashing over into the pool? 🌊 . TRAVEL TIP: If you're in Bondi and after good food I would recommend @theanchorbondi for a good roast and then @gelatomessina for dessert! 🍦 .

3) Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay

Just 4 hours south of Sydney is one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia, Hyams Beach.

TOP TIP – If you want to capture a photo on this beach with not many people in I would recommend going during winter (I went in August) or going early in the morning.

4) Hanging Rock, Blue Mountains

Just outside of Sydney is the beautiful Blue Mountains, where you’ll find a number of instagrammable spots and incredible landscapes, such as the Hanging Rock.

Please be aware that in order to get to the end of hanging rock you will need to jump a gap of about 80cm. Please be careful!

What do you call a ginger standing on top of a cliff? ….Edge Sheeran 👨🏻‍🦰🤣 :::: Can you believe that hanging rock gets its name from people who tie a rope on top and JUMP OFF! They then ‘hang’ below before climbing back up the rope 😱😱 :::: I would never in a million years jump off this rock BUT I have bungee jumped and done several solo sky dives. ✈️ :::: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done? :::: TRAVEL TIP – Please be aware that in order to get to the end of hanging rock you will need to jump a gap of about 80cm.

5) Lincolns Rock, Blue Mountains

One of the best sunset spots in Australia, and the best viewpoint in the Blue Mountains. Lincoln Rock is well worth the visit but you will need a car to get here.

6) Cape Byron lighthouse

Byron Bay is one of the trendiest beach towns in Australia, and a popular destination for backpackers and road trippers.  Cape Byron Lighthouse is probably the most famous photo spot in Byron Bay. Not only is this where you will find Australia’s most easterly point, but its picturesque vantage point makes it a great spot to watch both the sunrise and sunset, whilst also dolphin spotting!

TOP TIP – Cape Byron Lighthouse is a lot busier on the weekend, so if you can I would come midweek. You can either walk up, or drive, however you will need to pay $4 an hour parking. Although parking is free after 6pm!

7) Figure of Eights Rock Pool

If you’re looking to plan a day trip out of Sydney then I would recommend heading south into the Royal National Park to see the unique Figure 8 Pools.

TOP TIP – With the ever changing tide and crashing waves, it can be a dangerous location. A number of people have been injured here by waves washing them over the sharp rock plateau. In order to stay safe make sure you check the tide before going, you need to go at low tide when the swell is under 1m. You can check the tide for the figure 8 pools here, remember that the tide changes daily.

View this post on Instagram

The water was FREEZING! ❄ I once swam in glacial meltwater and I would say it was about the same temperature! That didn’t stop me from taking a dip though ;p Cold-water swimming is actually good for you as it activates temperature receptors under the skin that release hormones such as endorphins, adrenalin and cortisol! Where is the coldest water that you’ve ever swam in? 🏊 Can you believe that this is a natural pool?! Look how perfectly round it is! And the colour of the water 😍 There’s even one shaped like an 8! Known as the figure 8 pools, this plateau is located about an hours walk from Garrawarra car park in the Royal National Park, and is an easy day trip from Sydney. TRAVEL TIP – The Figure 8 Pools can be extremely dangerous depending on the tide and swell. Please make sure you only go at low tide when it’s under 1m, and also check the swell as rogue waves can crash over the plateau and sweep people across the sharp rocks. Check out my new blog post – TOP TIPS ON VISITING THE FIGURE 8 POOLS for more info. 🌟 📷 by @alexplores_the_world and edited by me on Lightroom – Head to my stories for a before/after. #figure8pools #ilovesydney #sydneylocal #royalnationalpark #seeaustralia #sheisnotlost #thetravelwomen #womenwhoexplore #darlingescapes #nswnationalparks @nswnationalparks @visitnsw

Most Instagrammable Spots in Victoria, Australia.

8) The 12 Apostles

The most iconic landmark along the Great Ocean Road is the Twelve Apostles, however there are now only eight stacks left. As the vegetation around the Twelve Apostles is protected you will have to follow walkways to see all of the stacks. As the Twelve Apostles are so popular it is where all tour companies will come, so it is super busy during the day.

TOP TIP – I would advise going at sunrise so you can avoid the crowd (plus the light at sunrise is super magical). 

GOR-127

9) Gibson Steps

Gibson Steps is the first stop along the part of the Great Ocean Road that has all the amazing coastal formations. You can either head to the viewing platform near the carpark or you can descend the steps to the beach.

TOP TIP – I would avoid coming at high tide as the sea takes up most of the beach.

Don’t take life for granite…! :::: One of the most iconic road trips to do in #Australia is the #GreatOceanRoad, from surfing beaches 🏄‍♀️, to tranquil forests and waterfalls 🌳, to incredible coastal formations, it is really such a beautiful road trip to go on 🚙 :::: If you go make sure to stop at: Torquay (Bells Beach), Split Point Lighthouse (the Lighthouse from Round the Twist), Teddys Lookout, Hopetoun Falls, Beauchamp Falls, the Redwoods, Gibson Steps, Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, The Bakers Oven, London Bridge and Halladale Point. :::: Find out more tips in my new blog post on the Great Ocean Road Main Attractions (link in bio) 💫 :::: EDITING TIP – I edited this photo on @lightroom with my Golden Hour Preset.

10) Beauchamp Falls

Head into the Great Otway National Park in Victoria and find your own piece of paradise at Beauchamp falls. As there is a 3km return walk to get here it isn’t as busy as most of the other waterfalls in the area, so it feels like you’ve discovered your own serene oasis!

11) Brighton Bathing Boxes

The Brighton Bathing Boxes just outside of Melbourne are a popular stop for photography lovers as they are just so colourful and cute!

“How wonderful is it that we laugh because our bodies can not contain the joy” – unknown 🙌🏼 ~~~ The yesterday a friend of mine said I seemed different. While physically I haven’t changed, I do feel different. ~~~ Being home this long you’d think I’d be going stir crazy. But as much as I’m itching to take off, I’ve also realized how incredible this summer has been. And I’m content. ~~~ Traveling less this summer has been both a struggle and a blessing at the same time. I’ve been able to reconnect with old friends, support my community better, attend local events, fall back in love with this city and laugh more! ~~~ Life has definitely been less stressful being home. It’s allowed me to be more patient and in the moment. (You’ve probably noticed lately I seem to always be a day behind in posting stories) and I’ve had a smile from ear to ear for 2 weeks now! 😁 ~~~ Just wanted to share my happiness!

Most Instagrammable Spots in Queensland, Australia.

12) Whitehaven Beach, Whitsundays

Voted the most beautiful beach in Australia, Whitehaven is a must visit on your trip to the Whitsundays.

TOP TIP – Make sure you select a cruise that allows you to visit the Hill inlet (to the north of the 7km long Whitehaven beach). The swirling blue and turquoise water over the white sand is quite a site.

It is easy to understand why Whitehaven beach is the third most photographed spot in Australia! 😍 :: :: Number 1 is Sydney Harbour and number 2 is Uluru (Ayers rock)! What’s the most photographed spot in your country? 📷 :: :: If you visit Whitehaven beach make sure you book a tour that includes a trip to the hill inlet so you can have this epic view!

13) Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system and stretches along the coastline of Queensland. It is definitely worth a visit if you come to Australia. The best place to access the Great Barrier Reef is either from Cairns or the Whitsundays.

View this post on Instagram

As a direct descendant of Ariel I am able to hold my breath for longer than most humans #truestory 🧜🏼‍♀️🤣😏 :: If you are looking to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef in the Whitsundays then I recommend spending a day at Hardy Reef with @cruisewhitsundays. They have a pontoon that is right next to the reef wall and you can actually see the patterns of the reef from above the water! You can choose to scuba dive (even if you've never done it before), but as the reef is quite high it is easy to enjoy with a snorkel! :: :: Where is the coolest place that you've snorkelled?! 🐠 :: Edited on @lightroom for desktop with my Smooth Blues 5 Preset #gingerpresets :: PHOTOGRAPHY/EDITING TIP – If you want to capture the colour of the reef you need to be near the coral (if you’re too far away it will look blue). You can save some of the colour that you lose by using the brush tool and increasing the temperature a bit 👌 :: *PR/press trip #seeaustralia #cruisewhitsundays #exploretnq #whitsundays #queensland #greatbarrierreef #thisisqueensland #sheisnotlost #darlingescapes #passionpassport #awesomelifestyle

14) Windin Falls

One of my favourite places in Australia, Windin Falls is an epic natural infinity pool overlooking the Atherton Tablelands. If you are road tripping around Queensland I would definitely recommend a stop here!

It’s not the easiest to find so check out my blog post on how to get to Windin Falls.

View this post on Instagram

Getting lost makes reaching the destination so much sweeter! If you’ve been watching my stories you will know that a few things have gone wrong on our Queensland road trip. Google Maps has continuously got us lost, I managed to lose my dress (I actually had to make a dress out of my towel 🤣), everything has been super dry and I fell over and bruised my hand 🙈. But at the end of the day the challenge makes the adventure! Do you have any funny travel mishaps? 🌍 TRAVEL TIP – This beautiful infinity pool is located at the top of Windin Falls. To get there you’ll need to head for Lamins Hill Lookout then carry along Old Cairns Track. The hike is around 2 hours return. I’ve written a blog with full info on how to get there (link in bio). :: :: Edited on @lightroom for desktop using my Golden Glow POP preset😍 :: :: #queensland #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #exploretnq #windinfalls #athertontablelands #sidewalkerdaily #passionpassport #awesomelifestyle #couplegoals #creativetravelcouples #travelust #coupleslovetravel

15) Fairy Pools, Noosa Heads

The Fairy Pools in Noosa Heads are beautiful natural rock pools with super clear water, you can watch all the little fishies from above.

TOP TIP – Go at low tide to discover the pools when the water is still and crystal clear.

16) Lake Mckenzie, Fraser Island

One of the most incredible places in Australia, the sand is a shocking white, and the water so clear and turquoise!

I loved Fraser Island so much that I visited it twice! If you’re heading to the East Coast of Australia it’s a must see!

View this post on Instagram

We visited Fraser Island a few days ago, and I fell in love with the lake McKenzie. Not only is the lake super pretty with white sand and light blue water, but also the water is so clear that I wanted to drink it and so warm that I never wanted to leave the lake! 📷 and edit by @thegingerwanderlust #australia #fraserisland #queensland #lakemckenzie #lakemckenziefraserisland #dreambeach #bestbeaches #bestbeachesaustralia #guyswhotravel #traveltemptation #travelawesome #instagood10k #beautifuldestinations #traveladdict #justgoshoot #worldtravelbook #thattravelblog #travlr #travelblogger #traveltagged #doyoutravel #iamtb #magicalplace #thewanderingtourist #sidewalkerdaily #passionpassport #traveltemptation #travelawesome #travelandlife #travellershouts In collaboration with @cooldingotour

17) Wallaman Falls

Wallaman falls is Australia’s tallest single-drop waterfall and you can choose to just enjoy it from the viewing platform, or you can take the more adventurous route down to the plunge pool. This track is quite steep with a number of loose rocks so please make sure you wear closed footwear. You will need around 1-2 hours to walk down and back up again (plus however long you want to stay at the bottom for).

Wallaman Falls, you are pure magic 🌈 — This stunning waterfall was our first stop on our @tropicalnorthqueensland road trip, and since then we have learned so much about living on the road: 1. Not showering for 3 days is normal 2. You will eat a LOT of ramen noodles 3. You‘ll definitely regret ever watching the movie Wolf Creek 4. McDonalds free wifi is a gift from god 5. You might meet other road tripper’s while sitting in the McDonald’s parking lot who are also stealing wifi and become friends and then decide to travel together in your matching vans… @shelbyandjordan 😆 | 📷: @domexplores #backpackwithme . . . . . #australia #queensland #cairns #vanlife #roadtrip #island #backpacking #travel #travelblogger #islandvibes #traveler #travelgram #backpacker #travellife #wanderlust #travelawesome #travelstoke #doyoutravel #instapassport #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #tropical

18) Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a really unique part of Australia where the city and sky scrapers meet the beach, Surfers Paradise is one of my favourite beaches in Australia.

TOP TIP – If you want to capture all of the buildings without too many people you can go to Kurrawa Park during the day. Or the main beach at surfers paradise at sunrise (or in the winter!)

View this post on Instagram

Always take out insurance before surfing, just in case the waves break 🌊🏄‍♀️🤣 :::: Make sure you add the Gold Coast to your road trip up Australia’s East Coast. The skyscraper fringed beaches make it one of Australia’s most iconic coastlines! 🏄‍♀️ :::: Would you prefer to live in a city or by the beach? 🏖 :::: TRAVEL TIP – We went south of Surfers Paradise to Kurrawa Park so that we could get a shot of the city sky line on the beach without too many people in. :::: Head to my NEW blog post to find out my full East Cost Australia road trip itinerary 🇦🇺 :::: 📷 by @alexwandr and edited on @lightroom with my Golden Glow Pop preset 🌟#gingerpresets :::: #surfersparadise #goldcoast #thisisqueensland #queensland #goldcoastbeach #seeaustralia #blondesandcookies #womenwhoexplore #sheisnotlost

19) Glass House Mountains

If you’re looking for a little trip outside of Brisbane the Glass House Mountains are a great place to stop and go hiking.

TOP TIP – Park at Wild Horse Mountain about an hour before sunset and walk a steep 10 minutes up for this view.

20) Walsh’s Pyramid

Walsh’s pyramid is an independent peak with a distinct pyramidal appearance. If you’re road tripping around Northern Queensland it is well worth a pit stop.

TOP TIP – Head to Behana Gorge Road for the most iconic view.

Most Instagrammable Spots in Western Australia

21) Hellfire Bay

My personal favourite beach in Australia, Hellfire Bay is simply breath taking. The water is SUPER turquoise, the sand incredibly white and it is surrounded by Cape Le Grand National Park. If you come to Western Australia you have to road trip from Perth to Esperance!

View this post on Instagram

What do you call a lazy baby kangaroo? A pouch potato! 🦘🤣 :::: I want to use this post to say goodbye to this beautiful country I've called home for the last year. 🇦🇺 :::: Living and working in Sydney within walking distance of several beaches was an absolute dream! 🏖 :::: We chilled with kangaroos, watched the sunrise over uluru, saw 3 shows at the @sydneyoperahouse, swam with whale sharks in Exmouth, bathed in countless waterfalls, roadtripped the Great Ocean Road and hiked to some incredible viewpoints. But we never put another shrimp on the barbie 🦐🤣 so I guess we need to return! :::: If any of you have any questions about Australia, ask away! 😘🇦🇺 I’ve already answered a few in my stories 🥰 :::: TRAVEL TIP – We visited Lucky Bay at the end of April and the kangaroos were on the beach all day, I found that the best time to take a photo was before 9:30am as that's when there aren't as many cars/people. :::: Edited with my Golden Film Preset 🌟 :::: #esperance #luckybay #justanotherdayinwa #westernaustralia #seeaustralia #iamtb #naturegramy #speechlessplaces #sheisnotlost #awesomelifestyle

23) The Blue Boat Shed, Perth

The Blue Boat Shed in Perth is growing so much in popularity that they are actually looking at building public toilets here! This beautifully symmetrical boat shed floating out on the water is perfect for your Instagram pictures.

View this post on Instagram

This city isn’t just the best in Australia 🇦🇺 it’s the best on (P)earth! 🌍 🤣 :::: How cute is this little boat house? Unfortunately you can’t sleep here but it’s ok as we stayed at the @yhaaustralia in Perth which has a pool, co-working space, super cool dining area and weekly organised activities! 🙌 :::: TRAVEL TIP – We came here midweek at sunset and there were quite a few people, luckily they all queue for a photo so it’s easy to get one without anybody in! 📷 :::: Which edit do you prefer? 1 (Golden Glow Pop), 2 (Golden Film) or 3 (no edit)? 🌟 :::: You can get 50% off my @lightroom editing presets until midnight on May 8 with code BIRTHDAY50 🥳 #gingerpresets :::: #seeperth #perth #blueboathouse #blueboatshed #crawleyboatshed #sheisnotlost #darlingescapes #crawleyedgeboatshed #justanotherdayinwa #yhaoz

24) Exmouth

If you are hoping to encounter some of Australia’s amazing marine life then you won’t want to miss visiting Exmouth and the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. Here you can encounter hoards of turtles during nesting season or the biggest fish in the ocean, the whale shark.

TOP TIP – Turtle nesting season is from November to March, this is when you will see hundreds of turtles coming to shore to laying eggs, an incredible experience to encounter in person.

25) Elephant Rocks

In the south of Western Australia you will find some super unique coastline such as the Elephant Rocks in William Bay National Park. From certain angles the rocks resemble a herd of elephants, hence the name! Make sure you also check out Green Bay which is a short walk away.

TRAVEL TIP – Try to go to Elephant Rocks at low tide (under 0.7m) so that the water isn’t between the rocks and you can actually go down onto the beach.

I wanted to make a joke about elephants but they were all irrelephant 🐘🤣 :::: Welcome to elephant rocks! From certain angles the rocks resemble a herd of elephants 🐘! From other angles they look like turtles 🐢🤣 :::: I love how in Australia they name everything in a really descriptive way, like a tasmanian devil gets its name as it sounds like a devil when it eats (and it's from Tasmania). ::::: I guess they would rename Paris 'Eiffel Tower City' or 'Peesmell' 🤔 If you had to rename your city in an Australian way what would it be called?! :::: TRAVEL TIP – Try to go here at low tide (under 0.7m) so that the water isn't between the rocks. :::: 📷 inspired by @_aswewander :::: #elephantrocks #denmarkwa #justanotherdayinwa #westernaustralia #seeaustralia #iamtb #naturegramy #speechlessplaces

26) Lake Hillier, Esperance

On a little island south of Esperance you will find the pinkest lake ever! Lake Hillier is a saline lake on the edge of Middle Island, you will need to book a helicopter tour to see it for yourself.

27) Hutt Lagoon

If you don’t fancy forking out for a helicopter tour over Lake Hillier than you can stop at another pink lake which is just north of Perth, the Hutt Lagoon. There are lots of different angles to capture this pink lake, find out the best photo spots for the Hutt Lagoon here.

TOP TIP – Come around midday to capture the Hutt Lagoon at its most colourful.

28) The Pinnacles

The Pinnacles are limestone pillar formations within Nambung National Park, some reach heights of up to 3.5m! You will find hundreds of them within the park, there is a road you can follow to easily explore to see them all.

Another very unique rock formation in Western Australia is the wave rock, a landform that was formed over 2700 million years ago! The wave rock is the perfect stop to break up your drive from Perth to Esperance (which is nearly 8 hours).

TOP TIP – If you want a photo alone at wave rock I recommend staying the night here and coming at sunset (or sunrise).

I was going to make a joke about rocks but they haven't been funny since the stone age.. 🤣 :::: My journey from Perth to Esperance was one of my favourite road trips in Australia. The coastline is just incredible (picture turquoise waters, sting ray's chilling in the shallows and lots of coastal bush 😍) and there is so much wildlife to enjoy! Check out my new blog post for my full itinerary and top tips! 🚗 (Link in bio) :::: The wave rock is the perfect stop to break up your drive from Perth to Esperance (which is nearly 8 hours😴) it's an incredible landform that was formed over 2700 million years ago! 🦕 :::: What's the best road trip you've ever been on? 🚘 :::: TRAVEL TIP – If you want a photo alone at wave rock I recommend staying the night here and coming at sunset (or sunrise).

30) Karijini National Park

If you love adventure then you will definitely want to add Karijini National Park to your Western Australia itinerary. It is completely in the middle of nowhere, and you will need to camp there to easily explore over two days but the unique red landscape is definitely worth it.

TOP TIP – Make sure you check out Hamersley Gorge and Hancock Gorge.

31) Rottnest Island

You can’t come to Western Australia without taking a quokka selfie! Rottnest Island is an easy day trip from Perth, it’s home to the cutest little marsupials as well as some beautiful beaches.

32) Purnululu National Park

The Purnululu National Park is a World Heritage Site in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia where beehive-shaped karst sandstone rises 250 metres above the surrounding semi-arid savannah grasslands.

Just give us a minute to take in this view. 😍 This is the Bungle Bungle Range located in Purnululu National Park in @australiasnorthwest. The orange and black striped sandstone domes, often likened to giant beehives, rise 300 metres above the surrounding grass-covered plain and really are quite the sight to see! Surprisingly, even though they're 350 million years old (!) AND on the National and World Heritage lists, these fascinating rock formations remained hidden from the outside world until 1983! You can explore the range on foot or take in the full spectacle on a scenic flight from Kununurra, Broome, Halls Creek or from within Purnululu itself. 📷 @mitch.cox #justanotherdayinWA #WesternAustralia #seeaustralia #australiasnorthwest

33) Freycinet National Park

Mount Amos was one of the hardest hikes I’ve done, not because of the distance (it only takes about an hour) but because of how vertical and slippery it is! But the incredible view over Freycinet National Park are totally worth it! Just make sure you wear sturdy shoes.

This view made me go weak at the knees, literally, the hike up was intense! But it was so worth it, even if Amos climb down 🏔🤣 :::: What's the hardest hike you've ever been on? 🏃‍♀️🥾 :::: If you're planning a trip to @freycinetnp and you're on a budget, I would recommend staying in the nearby town of Bicheno (about a 30 minute drive away).

34) Bruny Island

To the South East of Tasmania you will find the beautifully quaint Bruny Island. Here you can spend time cycling around the island, spotting wild kangaroos and admiring the unique landscape.

TOP TIP – Come to the neck lookout at sunrise or sunset, this way you can head down to the bottom of the stairs for the chance to see some PENGUINS!

What did one ocean say to the other ocean? …Nothing, it just waved. 👋🌊🤣 :::: We actually climbed up to this lookout TWICE! As the first time it started tipping down 🌧 and as soon as we got to the bottom of the stairs the sun came out 🌞 so back up the stairs we went 🤣 :::: Have you ever gone back somewhere to enjoy it in better weather? :::: TRAVEL TIP – Come to the neck lookout at sunrise or sunset, this way you can head down to the bottom of the stairs for the chance to see some PENGUINS! 🐧 sadly we didn’t see any but we’re hoping to see some soon! :::: EDITING TIP – Edited on @lightroom using my Golden Glow Pop preset and then adding in 2 radial filters to the right of the photo with increased warmth and exposure. #gingerpresets :::: 📷 by @alexwandr :::: #brunyisland #bruny #tasmania #seeaustralia #awesomelifestyle #speechlessplaces #iamtb #sheisnotlost #darlingescapes #discovertasmania

Don’t talk whilst taking long exposure shots, as they’ll come out noisy 📷😝 :::: That is obviously not true BUT I have shared all my TOP TIPS on HOW TO SHOOT LONG EXPOSURE SHOTS! Head to my blog to check it out (link in bio) 🌟 :::: Long exposure photography is where you use a low shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements (like water).📷 :::: Here you can see what a difference 8 seconds makes in the colours and also the water: The first photo is taken at 8 seconds, f/22, ISO 100 and the second is 1/20, f4.5, ISO 100. :::: Have you ever tried long exposure photography? :::: TRAVEL TIP – you’ll find this cool tree in Binalong Bay (near the Skeleton Bay Reserve) 🌳 :::: #bayoffires #discovertasmania #tasmania #seeaustralia #longexposureshots #photographytips #canon5dmarkiii #canonaustralia

36) Cradle Mountain

One of the most iconic landscapes in Tasmania, Cradle Mountain is a beautiful National Park with lots of different hikes to enjoy.

TOP TIP – Cradle Mountain National Park has only one narrow road going in and out so to avoid too much traffic you can’t drive in the park from 8am to 6:30pm, but you can catch the FREE shuttle bus!

37) Eagles Nest Retreat

If you’re road tripping around Tasmania I would recommend spending a couple of relaxing nights at the super Instagrammable Eagles Nest Retreat. There are 3 villas or ‘nests’, each perfectly decorated and with an outdoor bath so you can enjoy the view whilst chilling outside!

If you need me I will be here, slowly turning into a shrivelled prune 💦 :::: We’ve just checked in to the @eaglesnestretreat, and we couldn’t wait to try out their outdoor bath 🛁, surrounded by fields, overlooking #mountroland, Nest iii is a little oasis in #Tasmania 😍 :::: Have you ever had a bath outside?! 🛀 :::: Head to my stories for more on this beautiful retreat! :::: EDITING TIP – Skin always looks lighter underwater, so if your half in half out the water use the brush tool and decrease clarity, exposure and highlights and increase warmth so that it matches your skin tone that’s out of the water better. :::: #collab #eaglesnestretreat #seetasmania #seeaustralia #awesomelifestyle #speechlessplaces #iamtb #couplegoals #coupleslovetravel #creativetravelcouples #discovertasmania
