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

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

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!

@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.

SPOTTED: The Aussie ‘Easter Bunny’ taking time out before tonight’s big delivery of eggs 🥚 Okay, so he’s not really a bunny, this snow-white fellow that @sianaddison spotted on @brunyislandau is actually a #whitewallaby, but we think he certainly looks the part! #BrunyIsland is a delightful little island off mainland @tasmania, and it’s the only place on earth that has a wild population of white wallabies. A genetic defect in these Bennett's Wallabies gave them bright white fur and pink features, and a lack of predators on the island helps them to survive and pass on the genes. TIP: Head down to the Adventure Bay Caravan Park at dusk, and you’re highly likely to see a few of them hopping around.

Don’t be fooled, the watercolour painting you’re gazing at here is actually @visitnoosa on a particularly colourful evening. 🖼️😉 @maursasworld enjoyed this mesmerising #sunset view at #NoosaHeads, which is one of @visitsunshinecoast’s best vantage points for endless ocean scenery. There are so many ways to experience the magical golden hour in #Noosa; try booking a table for drinks and dinner at the waterfront @rickys_noosa or @wasabi_noosa, or embarking on a #NoosaRiver cruise with @catalinanoosa or @noosadreamboats to tick off two awesome @queensland experiences in one go.

Being this cute is thirsty work y’know! 👅 @goldsmiths_in_the_forest1 spotted this fella near their BnB in @loveeastgippsland’s #LakesEntrance, a popular holiday area which is four hours east of @visitmelbourne. This accommodation is nestled within the rainforest and the hosts run a complimentary guided interpretative walk to help guests learn about the native flora, birds and #wildlife. Sample local produce in the ‘bush food garden’ here, including native plants used in Aboriginal culture, and brew tea from the leaves that you’ve foraged for - it’s an authentic Aussie experience that’s hard to come by.

The water clarity in @sapphirecoastnsw is CLEARLY top-notch! 💦 @davey_rogers enjoyed this view “looking upstream from #PambulaRiver mouth”, a beautiful spot located a six-hour drive south of @sydney in @visitnsw. One of the best ways to enjoy the tranquillity of the river and surrounding headlands is to stroll along the Pambula River walking track. The track starts at the #river mouth in #BenBoydNationalPark, and you can often spot dolphins and stingrays in the water along the way. TIP: Pack a picnic and find a secluded inlet to base yourself for a little break, and if it tickles your fancy, why not take a dip in the river to cool down and recharge before finishing the track.

It's easy to understand why #quokkas are the "world's happiest animal" when you see where they live 😍 @evienairn spotted one of these lucky little creatures hopping around its stomping ground of @rottnestislandwa in @westernaustralia, enjoying the coastal scenery and looking effortlessly adorable. Quokkas are famous for often having a big grin on their face and fair enough, we would too if we got to call this island paradise home! Check out this beautiful island for yourself via a scenic ferry trip with @rottnestexpress from @destinationperth or @visitfremantle, you won't regret it!

Right this way to the majestic #KataTjuta 🚗 @saltywings captured this beautiful shot on a special project with @ausoutbacknt, and gained permission from the local Anangu people to do so. Drone images of these soaring rock domes in @visitcentralaus are very rare as remote-controlled devices, including drones and planes, aren’t normally allowed to be operated in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Seeing this natural landmark from this angle gives you a sense of its enormous scale, which truly does leave you in awe when experienced in person. Book a scenic flight tour with @professional_helicopters or @ayersrockscenicflights to see an aerial perspective for yourself, it’s a life-changing experience.

You know it’s your lucky day when you get a long stretch of beach all to yourself! 🏖️ @shaye.cooper spent a “magical Friday” on #Forster’s #OneMileBeach, which is a 3.5-hour drive from @sydney in @visitnsw’s @barringtoncoast region. The #beach is bordered by a large park with barbecue and picnic facilities, so pack a delicious lunch spread and you can easily spend the whole day here swimming and surfing in the water. TIP: Take a stroll to the northern end to Bennett's Head Lookout for a panoramic view of the area, and make sure to have your camera with you! 😉
