Well I thought I would post a shot from Victoria because I'm still talking about the Travel Bootcamp and our April event is in Melbourne! We don't have many tickets left and are rallying our forces as we speak to have a sell out event. So far we have people coming from every state in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, the USA (a few people) and one person from Switzerland!! I can't believe it! I love to see people traveling for this event because if you want a career in travel you have to be prepared to travel a lot and if you want to shake up your career you have to make a giant leap of faith, like coming to an event like ours. I actually have a student with me on my current job. She's writing a thesis on influencer marketing and I've been remembering so many awesome moments and stories as we've been spoken. This is a career I am really lucky to have and I teach everything I know at the conference, I'm an open book! If you're sitting on the fence to come I say jump. I know you won't regret it as I haven't regretted a minute of my amazing journey. @thetravelbootcamp #thetravelbootcamp

Good morning!! So we are getting closer and closer to my next conference @thetravelbootcamp , which is on in April in Melbourne Australia. The Bootcamp is designed to teach people how to get paid to travel from the perspectives of a travel Instagrammer (me), a travel blogger (Liz Carlson, Young Adventuress blog) and a travel writer (the fabulous Georgia Rickard). If you are a content creator, photographer, writer or anything in between you should check out our site, it's linked in my profile. The conference is literally my passion, my baby and the best day ever! I'm out on a trip this week but will be catching up on comments and answering questions when I can so let me know if there's anything you want to know. #thetravelbootcamp

Listen up Gold Coasters! It's week five of our EPIC six weeks of Instagram challenges and we're down to the pointy end of the competition with winners announced soon. Our theme this week is "Local Favs" โ€“ This week is your free choice. You can choose to tell your story or the Gold Coastโ€™s story, or a story about the way it all is or how you ended up here. Itโ€™s totally up to you. For my entry I ended up shooting The Spit Main Beach, which is a place I've spent a lot of time at over the years. This was taken at my last instameet and I'm hoping to have another one soon! Week 5 kicked off yesterday so you have Friday to upload your entry with @DestinationGoldCoast and #WeAreGoldCoast Good luck! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ„๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’ฅ

I know it's kind of late notice but I'm having an INSTAMEET tomorrow down in Yamba and I'd love to see everyone! The information is in the link in my bio but basically meeting at 5PM at the Wish Bone Sculpture at Turners Beach. Tag your friends! @MyClarenceValley #MyClarenceValley ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅโค๏ธ

As a send off to my Sun Country shots I have posted an epic Steller over at @StellerStories , if you don't have the Steller app you are cray! It reminds me of early Instagram with great content and an awesome community. (Not that Instagram doesn't have those things, Steller is just not as big and crazy haha) The link to my story is in my profile but you can also look me up on the platform with the same username. I literally have a story for every trip I've done for three years, all the goodness in one place. Check it out. Xx Thanks @VisitSunCountry , I loved it! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’›

I've already posted a funny shot of the stars where a passing car caused some gnarly flare and this is the big girl shot I was actually trying to get. The night skies out in Sun Country have to be seen to be believed. A million twinkling stars as far as the eye can see. ๐ŸŒŸโœจโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ @VisitSunCountry #VisitSunCountry

Don't you hate it when you do something really awesome and you can't really get a photo of it to portray how awesome it was? Well that happens to me a lot and sometimes I decide to share a shot anyway just to tell you all about it! This was from my cruise on the Murray with Kingfisher Cruises, one of the many great operators in the Sun Country. There is a huge amount of bird life on show and the best bird to spot is the Kingfisher. We saw a few but I was never close enough to get a good photo. Haha. So in this case I've decided to share this photo of cockatoos and you'll just have to believe me that Kingfisher Cruisers in Barmah is awesome. @VisitSunCountry #VisitSunCountry ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

Good morning! So I finally finished editing my shots from Sun Country and I had a few in there that came out better than I expected! This was sunset at Lake Mulwala, which was a difficult perspective to find from where we were staying in Yarrawonga. Basically we drove around the lake until we found a place that faced to the west and then we drove up to a farm house and I asked the farmer if we could take photos from his property. It was actually pretty hilarious because Matt told me to be careful of farm dogs as I went to the house and within seconds the most affectionate and friendly dog I've ever met in my life came flying around the corner and demanded love and pats right up until we left. And the farmer said yes! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ @VisitSunCountry #VisitSunCountry

Because this scene was too good to share just one shot! This was our morning spent at Dufties Beach one, a bit of a locals secret this one and my personal fave of the many beaches we visited in Sun Country. Also it's so weird that these are inland beaches. Haha. Imagine waking up camping here?! @VisitSunCountry #VisitSunCountry

How long has it been since you've kicked off your shoes, sat with some friends and fed bread to ducks over a conversation? For me it was last week, and what a wonderful feeling it was. I'm not sure if you've noticed but our trip to the Sun Country was actually incredible and filled with photogenic moments. I feel like we almost hit camera burn out by this afternoon and the few shots I got were almost an afterthought as I was too in-the-moment to worry. In my job it's really important to take photos that portray the beauty, diversity and character of a destination but it's also important to find the time to connect. Connect to the place, the spirit of the place, and to connect with yourself and the people you're traveling with. This part of Australia is under my skin and I hope that some of you do get the chance to experience the wonder, beauty and solitude of the Murray. @VisitSunCountry #VisitSunCountry

I so rarely post little shots like these on Instagram anymore but I used to love detailed shots, flowers and back light so I thought I'll do it! Haha. This is another one from Cactus Country and I'm still sorting out my shots from this incredible place. Also, @jewelszee just posted the most hilarious selfie of us there if you want to check it out. I'm wearing a Mexican sombrero. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Sun Country is the last place in the world I expected to find a world class cactus garden but there you go. I love rural Australia! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ @VisitSunCountry #VisitSunCountry ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒฎ

Can I just say, on the record, that Australia has the coolest and weirdest animals in the world! I know that I see kangaroos and koalas a lot but literally every time I stop and spin out. Haha. Like, they literally hop. If I were not Australian and I saw this I would probably laugh my ass off. Sun Country has a huge amount of wildlife, not just kangaroos but koalas, wallabies, other Aussie natives and more birds than I've seen in my life! Seeing animals in the wild versus seeing them in sanctuaries is a completely different experience. As you all know I have a lot of Aussie wildlife sanctuaries that I support and visit but this is important, to see animals in their natural environment. We spotted this guy on our way to Bouchiers Beach, where we also saw a koala! @VisitSunCountry #VisitSunCountry
