@visitnoosa you’re looking rather swell! 🌊 @_markfitz got a front-row seat to this spectacular #sunset at this @queensland beach town, where @noosa_festival_of_surfing just kicked off this weekend. Over nine days, surfers get together to enjoy epic waves, live music, parties, and there's even a Dog Surfing Championships (that's right, surfer-dogs! ). Pack your cossies, go on a #HolidayHereThisYear and make sure you treat yourself to a post-surf dinner at @noosabeachhouse , @rickys_noosa or @noosaboathouse - all perfect for a delicious meal with a side of panoramic #beach views. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #sunshinecoast #noosa #surfing #noosafestivalofsurfing


Today's surf check was done by #Exmouth local, Emily. 👀 She can confirm that you should definitely take a #HolidayHereThisYear ! @kyliessv spotted this #emu taking a beachside stroll inside #CapeRangeNationalPark 's #MauritiusBeach , a wildlife haven along @westernaustralia 's @australiascoralcoast . This beach is popular with fisherman and beachgoers that prefer an all-over tan, as it's #Exmouth 's only clothing-optional beach. No wonder Emily didn't have her bathers on. 🙈 #seeaustralia #thisiswa #australiascoralcoast #wildlifephotography #travel #weeklyfluff

Spotted: #GreatKeppelIsland local shellebrating another glorious beach day. 🎉🏝️ @keppelexplorer saw this sea #turtle going for its morning swim around the @queensland island, located off the @visitcapricorn coast in the @southerngreatbarrierreef . Only a 30-minute ferry ride from @visityeppoon , the island has 17 beaches and countless #wildlife experiences, it's a must-do for nature lovers. Plan a #HolidayHereThisYear and join a @keppelexplorer guided tour to swim, dive, snorkel and see the best highlights of the island in a day. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #visitcapricorn #southerngreatbarrierreef #wildlifephotography #travel

House the view on #BrightonBeach ? 🏖️ @ronnie_sparke spent a beautiful beach day with @visitmelbourne 's #BrightonBathingBoxes , which are only half an hour from the CBD, so you can get a good view of the city skyline from the #beach . Originally built for private seaside bathing, the #bathingboxes now act as a colourful backdrop for swimmers (and photographers ). making beach days more fun and vibrant! #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #visitmelbourne #viewfromabove #travel

Hiking #CradleMountain is a peak @tasmania experience. 🏔️ @_danieltran_ started his day above the clouds at @visitcradlecoast ’s iconic Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, where the mountains are snow-capped all-year-round and the alpine air is always fresh and crisp. Take a #HolidayHereThisYear and spend a few days exploring the park, and stay at @cradlemountainhotel or @pepperscradlemountainlodge to make sure you don’t miss a spectacular #sunrise like this. #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #visitcradlecoast #landscapephotography #travel

The only kind of Monday blues you'll find in @kiamansw . 💙 @_markfitz enjoyed this sweeping view of #MinnamurraRiver during his visit last month, a popular spot for swimmers, kayakers and SUP boarders. The @visitnsw South Coast is ready for you to take a #HolidayHereThisYear - Pack your cossies for some serious beach-hopping, kayak through the river, put on your best hiking shoes for the scenic #KiamaCoastwalk , and keep your belly full at the likes of @minnamurra_cafe , @pennywhistlers and @thehungrymonkeyyy , #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #minnamurra #loveNSW #travel #kayaking

A road trip simply must be on the cards when you plan a #HolidayHereThisYear ! 🚙 @ospreycreative recently went on an incredible @westernaustralia #roadtrip from @destinationperth to @australiasgoldenoutback ’s #Esperance , which can be done leisurely over five days. Brace yourself for white-sand beaches (like the iconic #LuckyBay pictured here ), lush national parks and natural wonders like #WaveRocks and #LakeHillier along the way. So pack your cossies and put on your good walking shoes, it's going to be an epic few days! #seeaustralia #thisiswa #goldenoutback #travel #thegreatoutdoors

And he’s off! All the best, little guy 👋 🐢 #HolidayHereThisYear to witness #turtles hatching on @queensland 's @heronisland ! @christiancatasta did exactly that recently and he was lucky enough to capture this incredible moment when this tiny #turtle emerged from the nest and ran for the ocean. These hatchlings will embark on an epic journey into the ocean and with any luck, they will end up back on this very same island in the @southerngreatbarrierreef in around 30 years to continue the circle of life. Turtle season #Queensland runs from October to April. It’s a truly magical sight to see and it should be at the top of your bucket list! #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #southerngreatbarrierreef #gladstoneregion #marinelife

UnBLUElievably clear waters and soft white sand? We're definitely going to #HolidayHereThisYear ! 🏖️ @saxonkent recently enjoyed a glorious beach day at #ThePass , a world-famous surfing spot in #ByronBay on the @visitnsw north coast. Plan a beach-hopping trip here and stay at @raesonwategos , @watermarkwategos or @azurbyronbay , and try out a different #beach and restaurant every day of the week Our tip: Help us keep our coastline beautiful by always taking your rubbish with you. Join @take3forthesea_byron for a clean-up event on #MainBeach this Thursday if you're in the area. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #thegreatoutdoors #beachlife #travel #take3forbyron

The window seat doesn’t get much better than this. 😍 One of the best ways to support #Australia right now is to keep visiting - Join us for a #HolidayHereThisYear ! @quil .studios was at this remarkable rock formation, aptly named #NaturesWindow , located within @westernaustralia 's #KalbarriNationalPark . This natural rock arch perfectly frames the #MurchisonRiver which flows through the park, creating a unique (and rather astonishing ) lookout. Hop in the car in @destinationperth and go for a six-hour #roadtrip along the @australiascoralcoast to get here, there are plenty of fun pit-stops along the way too. #seeaustralia #thisiswa #australiascoralcoast #viewfromabove #travel

@visit12apostles putting on a show at #sunset to tempt you for a #HolidayHereThisYear . 🌄 @imlukemackenzie couldn't resist taking a photo of these iconic rock formations, a must-see on the @visitgreatoceanroad . A five-hour scenic drive from @visitmelbourne , guided tours like @aatkings and @autopiatours include pick-up and drop-off at #Melbourne , so you don't have to worry about driving. And if you’re visiting between September and May, the @greatwalksofoz four-day @twelveapostleslodgewalk tour is a great way to experience the incredible coastal area by foot for a different perspective. #seeaustralia #visitvictoria #greatwalksofaustralia #greatoceanroad #12apostles

What a top spot - who’s keen to #HolidayHereThisYear ? 💙 This spectacular view over @queensland 's #AirlieBeach is just a standard day in the office for the @skydiveaustralia team - pretty impressive, right? Thrill-seekers and daredevils can't go past a tandem #skydive when in the @whitsundaysqld , from up here you get panoramic views of the turquoise waters of #WhitsundayIslands and the #GreatBarrierReef , it's a perspective that you certainly won't forget. #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #lovewhitsundays #travel #viewfromabove

Most affected regions are now open as usual and welcoming visitors again, so make sure you plan a #HolidayHereThisYear to support them. @keikei_c was at possibly the most scenic railway station as she waited for @scenicworld_aus 's #ScenicRailway in the #BlueMountains . Hop on the steepest passenger railway in the world, and you'll get the thrill of a 52° ride while enjoying an excellent view of @visitnsw 's iconic #ThreeSisters , the national park's ancient rainforest, and the gorgeous #JamisonValley . Our tip: Also go on the 'cableway', 'skyway' and 'walkway' so you can really get a good view of the park from all angles. #seeaustralia #newsouthwales #travel #themountainsarecalling #scenicworld_aus

Planning a holiday is a great way to support #Australia right now - How about a #surfing trip to @queensland ? 🏄‍♀️ @danieljkiritsis captured these top-notch surf conditions in @visitnoosa last week, a popular (for very good reason! ) holiday destination on @visitsunshinecoast . Work up an appetite on the stunning beaches then stroll down Hastings Street for a bite to eat. We're definitely going to #HolidayHereThisYear ! #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #sunshinecoast #noosa #travel

Want to show your support for communities in affected regions? Wine not go on a foodie road trip to @southaustralia 's @visitadelaidehills ? 🍇 @winetimedave enjoyed this lush view alongside a delicious lunch at @mtloftyvineyard last Sunday, where the @adelaidehillswine region's #vineyards and #cellardoors are open for business and ready for more visitors. Start your wining-and-dining trail with a long lunch here before moving onto the likes of @goldingwines , @tilbrookestate , @pikeandjoyce , @barristersblockwines and @melbaschocolates . Our tip: There's so much to see and taste in the area, stay a few days in @adelaidehillsretreats or @mountloftyhouse so you can explore them all! #seeaustralia #HolidayHereThisYear #seesouthaustralia #bookthemout #visitadelaidehills

Hear from @chrishemsworth and find out what these @australianopen tennis stars love about visiting us. 🎾💚 This special message played at the #AustralianOpen in @rodlaverarena this week, as the tournament rebrands as "Australia is Open" during the finals weekend to let everyone know that we are welcoming visitors to take a #HolidayHereThisYear . Each January, this exciting Grand Slam tournament draws #tennis fanatics and spectators from all over the world to @visitmelbourne , it's a must-do for anyone who loves sports, music, food and fun! #seeaustralia #visitmelbourne #AusOpen #AustraliaisOpen

The best way to support Australian communities and the tourism sector is to keep visiting. We're still open for business! @overlandtravellers enjoyed a dip in @ntaustralia 's #BitterSprings first thing in the morning, which they described as "spectacular" and "magical", and we certainly agree! Located an hour from @visitkatherine in #ElseyNationalPark , you can float freely in this natural spring-fed stream surrounded by warm turquoise waters and tropical woodlands. Our tip: stay a few nights at the local caravan park to explore the walking trails and thermal pools in this part of @tourismtopend . #seeaustralia #NTAustralia #tourismtopend #thegreatoutdoors #travel #viewfromabove

Our tourism industry relies on your support to rebuild and recover, so let’s #HolidayHereThisYear - We saved you on a spot on @rottnestislandwa . 🏖️ @_sarahlatham found this postcard-perfect #beach just off the coast of @westernaustralia , a short ferry ride from @destinationperth or @visitfremantle . @sealinkrotto , @rottnestfastferries and @rottnestexpress all have daily services to the island, and you can hire a bicycle through them to get around once you're here. Our tip: Stay right on this beach at @discoveryrottnestisland for beachfront views and easy access to @pinkysbeachclub , which is the perfect spot to have dinner or sip on a cocktail as you watch the sunset over the ocean. #seeaustralia #thisiswa #rottnestisland #travel

One of the best ways to support #Australia right now is to keep visiting – This week we’re strolling through lavender fields in @tasmania 💜 @chelseakolb captured this vibrant scene at @northerntasmania 's @bridestoweestate last week, where over half a million #lavender plants are currently in bloom. Located 45 minutes from #Launceston , you can spend the day wandering among the fragrant fields, eating homemade lavender ice cream, and souvenir-shopping - You can't go past the lavender-filled teddy bear.😉 #seeaustralia #HolidayHereThisYear #discovertasmania #northerntasmania #travel #thegreatoutdoors

Tourism plays an important role in helping affected communities rebuild and recover - You can help by planning a trip, and this beachfront spot in @southaustralia looks like a great place to start! 🏝️ Kane Overall captured this stunning shot just 10 days ago at @onekangarooisland , a private retreat on @authentickangarooisland . Spend your days snorkelling and swimming in the clear blue waters, wine-tasting at @falsecapewines and @dudleywines , and exploring with @kiwildernesstours , @exceptionalkangarooisland or @kangarooislandodysseys . #seeaustralia #HolidayHereThisYear #seesouthaustralia #bookthemout #authenticKI #thegreatoutdoors
