Who’s ready to set sail for the weekend?⛵️ @vincent.rommelaere is “feeling pretty lucky” to live in photogenic @sydney, and who wouldn’t be?! The stunning #SydneyHarbour isn’t just good to look at, it’s also perfect for #boating and #sailing. Book a cruise or charter a yacht to see the iconic @sydneyoperahouse and #SydneyHarbourBridge from sea; there are plenty of options from @sailcorpsydney, @sailawaysydney and @champagne_sailing. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #ilovesydney #skyline #sunrise

@tasmania’s #BayOfFires shows off 50 shades of blue, and we love every one of them! 💙 29 kilometres of white sand beaches stretch along this part of @eastcoasttasmania, and as you go further along the bay you’ll also find its famous orange-red rock formations. Explore the area with @taswalkingco’s @greatwalksofoz four-day walking tour between October and May, which picks you up from #Launceston and guides you through some seriously stunning scenery.

In @southaustralia, a sunset surf is the best way to finish the day🏄🏻‍♂️ @jesse_ehlers was “frothing” over this golden #sunset in @officialfleurieupeninsula’s #Middleton, and rightfully so! Just over an hour drive south of #Adelaide, #MiddletonBeach has soft white sand and gentle consistent surf breaks, making it an ideal spot for beginner #surfers and all the beach bums out there. #seeaustralia #seesouthaustralia #fleurieupeninsula #surfing #explore

The world-famous view of #BellsBeach on @visitgreatoceanroad 😎@texastravelgal stopped by this surfing mecca, which is a 90-minute drive from @visitmelbourne. Surf conditions are at their best during autumn and winter, but you'll need to don a wetsuit and just might need to sample local wines at the nearby @bellbraeestatewinery to warm up afterwards. Sounds bearable, right? 🍷 Photo: @texastravelgal #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #greatoceanroad #surfing

Well, @thisismagneticisland definitely missed the memo that it’s winter ☀️🌴 @_markfitz recently enjoyed soaking up the @queensland sunshine on the #beach at #HorseshoeBay. Hop on a ferry from @townsvillenorthqueensland to get to this little slice of paradise, where its mild sunny climate stays pretty much the same all year round! Bring or hire snorkelling equipment to check out the colourful fish and coral that are just a short swim off the beach. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #townsvilleshines #hinchinbrookway #magneticisland

It’s fair to say this cheerleading pyramid needs a little work 🙊 Introducing Kenno, Mango, Mazikeen, and Marzipan, the #wombat cheer squad of @dimmocksretreatwildlife in @visitsouthernhighlands of @newsouthwales. These cheeky wombats were rescued and are now being hand-raised by a dedicated husband and wife team at the retreat, and will be released back into the wild when they get older.

If we had to guess, we’d say the expression ‘crystal clear water’ was coined by someone visiting @westernaustralia! @goldykilner had a blast stand-up paddleboarding at Castle Rock Beach in @australias_southwest, and even saw some stingrays. Located in the @margaretriver region, this beach is popular with paddleboarders, swimmers and fishers. The best way to dry off after spending time in the water is to walk the #MeelupTrail along #CastleBay, and up to #WhaleLookout for that top-of-the-world feeling. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #australiassouthwest #thegreatoutdoors #travel

The mountains are calling! ⛰️ Surrounded by majestic mountain ranges, @tasmania’s #LakeRhona is a picture-perfect paradise as @heathwhiley captured here. Pack your #camping gear and head to Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, where you can reach the #lake by doing the 28km Lake Rhona Trail over two to three days and #camp at the designated campsite. Remember to bring your camera for all the dramatic #landscapes and #wildlife along the way! #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #thegreatoutdoors #hiking #naturephotography

The grass is greener on the south side, according to this shot of #Myponga in @southaustralia 🌿 @susiereynolds66 loves this view looking down to #CoweelungaBay and #SellicksBeach, and so do we! Stop at this lookout when #roadtripping from #Adelaide to @officialfleurieupeninsula for a picnic, or sample the local food and beer at @smilingsamoyed brewery down the road. #seeaustralia #southaustralia #fleurieupeninsula #travel #thegreatoutdoors

There’s nothing better than a #quokka that laughs at all your jokes, as @travelivi found out on @rottnestislandwa in @westernaustralia. Catch a ferry from #Fremantle to get to this island off the coast of @destinationperth, and get ready for all sorts of wildlife encounters including birds, frogs, turtles and dolphins. #seeaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #seeperth #wildlifephotography #travel

Is this the coolest man-made dive and snorkel site in @Queensland? @aswetravl says swimming out to snorkel at the #TangaloomaWrecks made their #MoretonIsland trip! Just over an hour ferry ride from @VisitBrisbane, these deliberately sunken ships create a safe mooring area and are home to a large variety of reef fish and coral formations 🐠🐟 The wrecks are not far off the beach so you can either swim out to explore them on your own, or join a @tangaloomaislandresort snorkel tour to learn more about the ecosystem from a guide. For amazing aerial views of the wreck as pictured, a @tangaloomaheli tour is the way to go 🚁 #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #brisbaneanyday #aerial #travel
