Vacation photos are practically a staple on Instagram. You get to take a picture of the place you visited and get to share it with the people back home in real time. Plus, it will always remind you of the feeling you had so you can use that as motivation when you get back to work. Beef up you’re your social media status by posting what your followers will be expecting.
The key to a great Instagram post is knowing what to upload. No one is going to want to see what you had for dinner or what your hotel bed looks like. They are going to be more interested in the places you will be visiting. Why? Because they aren’t there. That means that a good portion of them has probably never been to the place you’re going. That is why you should take great shots of the areas you plan to visit in Australia. Here are a few spots that are sure to look good on Instagram, with or without a filter.
Fraser Island [Queensland]
Located 250km north of Brisbane, and inscribed as a World Heritage site in 1992, the island is considered to be the largest sand island in the world. Sand isn’t the only thing you can find on Fraser Island. You can also see rainforests, eucalyptus woodland, and bodies of water like Lake Makenzie as pictured above. A vacation shot of any place in Fraser Island is sure to garner you some Instagram attention.
The Twelve Apostles [Victoria]
One way to make your vacation in Australia memorable is going for a drive along the Great Ocean Road. The Twelve Apostles is just one of the many places where you can capture great photos.
Karijini National Park [Western Australia]
Formerly the Hamersley Range National Park, Karijini is known as the second largest national park in Western Australia. The park is split into two parts: a northern and southern half of a natural swimming pool down the middle. Not only that, but it’s also rich with plant life that is perfect for people who like to post informative photos on Instagram for their followers.
Sydney Harbour [New South Wales]
When tourists visit Sydney, the first thing on their itinerary is the famous Opera House. A lot of people will be taking that route, and it can seem a little generic. If you want a picture to set you apart and for better quality, then take a ferry to McMahons Point to capture a better angle of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Bay of Fires [Tasmania]
Located on the north-eastern coast of Tasmania and extending from Binalong Bay to Eddystone Point, the Bay of Tires is best known for its white beaches, blue waters, and orange-hued granite rocks. The rocks look great on Instagram, and you can even stay here to camp with your mates. Other activities you can do here and also post on Instagram include surfing, boating, and of course, swimming.
Finding places around Australia to post on Instagram is all well and good, but don’t forget that this is social media, and it can always wait. Don’t ever let yourself get carried away trying to find the perfect Instagram shot that you forget to enjoy your time with your loved ones. It is never worth it.
But that said, you can still enjoy these places and find even more if you have a car to drive around in Australia during your stay. If you’re in the Sydney area, go to the nearest car rental in Parramatta – Sydney and rent a vehicle, so you never have to follow anyone’s schedule or have to worry about bus schedules and taxi fares.
