"We're here for the party. Where's the snack table at?" - At #CapeHillsborough, you'd be forgiven for thinking you had just walked into a family gathering - there are #kangaroos and wallabies everywhere! This stretch of sand in @queensland's @visitmackay region is a popular spot for the local wallabies and kangaroos to hang out; usually, they're foraging for seed pods which have washed up on the beach. You can stay overnight here at @capehillsboroughtouristpark, or nearby in the town of #Mackay which has lots of lovely beachfront accommodation.

Fancy a splash of pink with your coastal flight today? Flying over Hutt Lagoon in @australiascoralcoast is quite a colourful affair! This striking spot is located around halfway between the seaside town of Kalbarri and the port city of Geraldton in @westernaustralia. You can either fly over Hutt Lagoon with @geraldton_aircharter or @shineaviation, or if you prefer to see it from ground level, you can drive along the eastern edge of the lake and admire it up close.

Stop everything - there are four chubby dingo puppies snoozing in a fluffy basket 😍 These gorgeous pups - two boys and two girls - were born at the @australianreptilepark in @visitnsw just two weeks ago. According to the park staff, Adina is the "best mum ever" and gives them "countless cuddles." Dad Fred, on the other hand, apparently "isn’t too bothered by it all... he's just chill." It won't be long before these little cuties become independent; they've already opened their eyes since this video was taken and are starting to take their first steps. Stay tuned for the next instalment! Video: @australianreptilepark #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #centralcoastnsw #dingo #puppies #dingoes #wildlife #dogoftheday #puppyoftheday #dogsofinstagram

Let it glow! ✨ The brilliant spectacle that is @vividsydney kicked off tonight, which means that that the city of @sydney will be transformed by sensational shows of light and colour - watch our Instagram Stories ⬆️ for a sneak peek. As part of the world's largest festival of light, music and ideas, the popular precincts of Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, @rbgsydney, @tarongazoo, Darling Harbour, Chatswood, Barangaroo and Kings Cross will come alive with dazzling displays which have to be seen to be believed. This year also sees the return of #CustomsHouse and the introduction of the iconic @lunaparksydney as part of the extravaganza, not to mention an incredible program of music, guest speakers and workshops. Vivid runs until June 16. Photo: @vividsydney #seeaustralia #vividsydney #ilovesydney

Just in case you needed a little reminder of how beautiful the #GreatBarrierReef is, here's one from just a few days ago 😍 @justinjamespictures took this photo when flying over the @gbrmarinepark in the @whitsundaysqld with @helireef. To see the reef from the air is really one of the best ways to comprehend its size and scale; it stretches for 2,300 kilometres along the coast of @queensland.

Sunrise surfing at #BellsBeach πŸ„ This famous spot on the @visitgreatoceanroad is one of the most revered surf beaches in Australia, and home of the annual @wsl Rip Curl Pro. There's something about this beach in Victoria that lures surfers from around Australia and across the globe, and it's not just the rugged scenery and excellent waves. It's something sacred, almost spiritual... we can't explain it. You'll just have to surf here and feel it for yourself!

Lace up your boots and step into this enchanted forest in @tasmania πŸ’š This ancient, lichen-covered wonderland is part of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, which you'll find in @tasmaniasnorthwest. This @tasmaniaparks national park is home to a massive network of walk trails, ranging from short hikes to multi-day missions like the famous Overland Track. It's pretty chilly in Tassie at this time of year, so rug up if you're visiting here, and make sure you've got a good pair of waterproof boots if you're heading out hiking.

Is that bouquet for us, Mr Quokka? How kind! πŸ’ It's not every day you receive a posy from a #quokka, so you can imagine @meerkatharry's excitement when he encountered this friendly critter on @rottnestislandwa. Quokkas are rather sociable little animals, and they're quite used to human company so don't be surprised if they come up close. There's a population of #quokkas on #Rottnest, which technically means 'rat's nest' and was named by Dutch explorers who thought the quokkas were rats.

Please don't wake us - we're taking a seafood-induced nap on @orpheusisland 🦐🐟😴 @nicole__foster admits that she may have "overindulged a little thanks to the fabulous food" on this gorgeous island paradise in @queensland. All meals are included and the menu here is inspired by the natural surroundings; we're talking fresh prawns, Moreton Bay bugs and tropical rock lobsters, just to name some of the delicacies. The island's even got its own vegetable garden! Photo: @nicole__foster #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #townsvilleshines #explore #travel #islandlife

What's more impressive than one @sydneyoperahouse at sunrise? Two of them, of course! πŸ˜‰ The stunning reflections pictured here are in the window of the @parkhyattsydney at Circular Quay, which is a popular spot for photographers (it's not hard to see why!). @Sydney's Circular Quay will be dazzling with colour and lights for the next few weeks, with @vividsydney kicking off this weekend. The sails of the #SydneyOperaHouse will be lit up with kaleidoscopic projections each evening, which is just one of the many brilliant spectacles on display during the event.

A turtle beamed down from the heavens - it must be #WorldTurtleDay! πŸ™Œ Today is a very special day; it's all about shellabrating, raising awareness and advocating for the protection of #turtles, #tortoises and their environments. Of the seven species of marine turtles in the world, six occur in Australian waters, not to mention 23 species of freshwater turtles. @kylerauphotography spotted this beautiful turtle on @ladyelliotislandecoresort in @queensland, which is an excellent place to spot turtles; it's home to a healthy population of green, hawksbill and loggerhead turtles.

Do you prefer @lordhoweislandtourism from above ➑️ or from ground level? They're both pretty spectacular, if you ask us! These two stunning snaps will give you a good idea of what the landscape's like on this ancient volcanic remnant off @visitnsw's coastline; we're talking lush, green, and very much subtropical. A holiday here is about as relaxing as it gets (unless you want to climb to the top of Mount Gower, which is worth the effort!) - so prepare for a change of pace. You're on Lord Howe Island time now ☺️ Photos: @tommymartello | @jaxonark #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #lordhoweisland #travel #explore
