Having just driven 20,000km around Australia (that’s the same distance as flying London to Sydney) in an battered, old Landrover, I can definitely attest to this country’s Instagrammability … if this is even a word!
Yes when you’re living out of a tent on a roof, surrounded the beauty of Australia every day, you realise just how perfect this place is if you want to snap some amazing travel shots.
With stunning scenery and vibrant visuals, the Land Down Under is so diverse and has so many unique sights, that it really is the most #instaperfect country in my opinion.
So check out these 8 places I’ve selected as the most instagrammable in Australia and start getting your friends jealous now!
The 8 Most Instagrammable Places in Australia
The big daddy of them all, Uluru is one giant big rock surrounded by red dirt. Sounds boring, but really, it’s anything but, especially when those massive Outback sunsets send their golden rays to bounce off every surface possible!
#2 Cable Beach, Broome
And if it’s sunsets you’re after, then it’s hard to look past Broome’s Cable Beach, for that awesome Instagram capture.
With the sun going down off the Indian Ocean, I’ve never seen so many purples, reds and deep pinks combine in the sky as I have from here.
#3 Sydney Opera House
A classic and a classic for a reason, Sydney Opera House is one of the most iconic buildings in the world.
And, set against those classic Aussie blue skies and the beautiful harbour views, it makes one heck of a recognisable image everyone loves to like!

#4 Figure Eight Pools, Royal National Park
And just down the road from Sydney is another amazing spot you simply have to take your camera too … despite the hike.
The figure 8 pools in Royal National Park were actually catapulted to fame through the power of Instagram, so there’s nothing like jumping on the bandwagon and snapping some of their beauty too.
Set at the edge of the ocean, the 4-hour hike to get to these perfectly shaped plunge pools is hard, but definitely worth it. Just watch out however, the pools are only accessible and safe to visit during low tide, so do your research first!
#5 Gunlom Falls, Kakadu National Park
From one National Park to another, Gunlom Falls in Australia’s Northern Territory is pretty hard to look past too when it comes to epic Instagram spots.
Another swimming hole, but this time set up high, enjoy looking over nature’s ultimate infinity pool as the vastness of the Outback unfolds before you.
#6 The 12 Apostles
If it’s greatness you’re after, then Victoria’s 12 Apostles could well be the Instagram shot for you.
Despite there only being 8 left now, these towering stacks of limestone, set against the wildness of the great Southern Ocean, make for an incredibly atmospheric image few will forget in a hurry.

#7 Whitehaven Beach, Whitsundays
Let’s be honest, Whitehaven Beach in Queensland’s famous Whitsundays has got to be on this list.
Known for having some of the whitest sand in the world and surrounded by the tropical reef, this is the ideal place to either grab an overhead shot of the beach and the turquoise ocean beyond, or an underwater pic of the Great Barrier Reef … so just remember to pack to GoPro!

#8 Nature’s Window, Kalbarri National Park
And finally, probably the least famous of these 8 most instagrammable shots in Australia, but definitely not any less worthy for it, Nature’s Window can be found within Kalbarri National Park in Western Australia.
Standing in front of it, you are given the most perfectly framed shot of the Murcishon River Valley that stretches for miles and perfectly showcases those wonderful West Australian colours.
So if you’re running out of inspiration for your Instagram account, maybe it’s time to book a trip to Australia! There’s really no place like it on earth!
