A few months ago a study was released that talked about millennials choose their vacation destination based on how Instagram worthy a destination is. So forget about price or practicality, it is all about how good the place looks. And if there was anywhere to fit that criteria, then it is going to be a place like Australia.

With some unique wildlife, world-famous landmarks, and stunning weather, it is easy to see why Australia is the most instagram worthy destination and would make a great choice. But where are the most photographed places in Australia? Here are some of the top offbeat Australian cities that will make your Instagram followers green with envy.

Instagram Worthy Places In Australia

1. Bondi Beach, New South Wales

While there are plenty of stunning beaches in Australia, Bondi Beach is one of the most famous. With great waves for surfing, white sands, and bright blue sea, it is easy to see why it would make a great spot for Instagram.

2. Hyams Beach, Shoalhaven

Hyams Beach is the beach with the whitest sand in the world and is one of the most instagrammed sights in Australia. The Guinness World Record says it has bestowed the palm of the best at the Australian beach. Hyams beach is located south-east of Australia at Shoalhaven, in Jervis Bay in New South Wales, about 180 km from Sydney.

Besides having the whitest sand in the world, Hyams Beach is located in a central position with respect to all the offers of Jarvis Bay. Also spelled Jervis Bay, this offbeat yet spectacular place is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations in Australia. Offering crystal blue waters along with shimmering sandy beaches, the beauty of the place cannot be described in enough words.

Adventure lovers will enjoy the watersports opportunities here while animal lovers will immensely be enthralled by indulging in a bit of Dolphin spotting. There is also the Booderee National Park you can explore whose top attractions include Bristol Point, Murrays Beach, and Greenpatch among others.

Nearby activities include a Marine Park, walking trails on rocky ridges and native forests. The crystal waters of the beach offer activities of snorkeling, diving, sailing and surfing.

3. Sydney Opera House

One of the essential visits in Sydney is the Opera House, a building that has become the symbol of the entire continent. Among the instagram worthy places in Sydney the iconic Sydney Opera House building set in the Sydney harbor makes for a great picture. People will instantly know where you are, and it can look amazing set alongside the backdrop of stunning blue sky.

4. Hervey Bay, Sunshine Coast

While not a place that is world-famous, it is a great spot to go if you are after some great images. The sea is stunning, and there is even a chance that you could spot some whales if you charter a boat out of the bay. Pretty epic, right?

5. Sydney Harbor

Sydney as a city is a really pretty one, with all of sights to see and striking buildings. But it really is a good looking city. Even more so if you decide to hop on a boat to see the city, and take some pictures. But we also have to highlight the beauty of its bay, its beaches and the great cultural and gastronomic offer.

Byron Bay is known for its bohemian and relaxed lifestyle and its beaches. Next on the route to Cape Byron we can enjoy beautiful views of the ocean and if we go between June and November you can spot humpback whales.

6. South Bank, Brisbane

Naturally, being an island, even though it is a very large island, there are lots of places to get great images that feature water. And the South Bank in Brisbane isn't any different. With a view of the city, the sea, and a large ferris wheel, it is ticking all of the boxes for Instagram.

In addition, the city has some of the most picturesque corners, such as the West End and its street market or the Story Bridge, which are essential instagram-worthy spots in Brisbane. Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world, the Botanical Garden, the Brunswick and Paddington shopping streets, and the Brisbane City Hall and King George Square cultural centers are other instagram worthy places around Brisbane.

7. National Gallery, Victoria

It is not just about the beaches, right? The National Gallery in Victoria is a great spot for some unique and quirky images, as you take images, of images. There are some really funky and modern pieces of art in the gallery, and you could get creative with how you capture them.

8. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Has it even been a trip to Australia if there hasn't been any wildlife involved? Australia is full of amazing and pretty unique wildlife, so it makes sense to capture some of it for your photographs. The wildlife sanctuary in Currumbin, Queensland, is a great spot to find koalas and see other native wildlife in their natural habitat.

9. Ayers Rock

The incredible Ayers Rock, also called Uluru, is one of the most spectacular sights to behold in Australia. Located in the heart of the Red Center in Australia’s Northern Territory, it is a sacred site for the local indigenous folk. Thereby, climbing this is considered a great insult to them.

Visited by a growing number of local as well as foreign tourists, Ayers Rock is an important and recognizable symbol of Australia today. Nature lovers will be enthralled by a visit to this massive mountain offering endless beauty to behold.

Found in the northern territory of the country, this is a place like no other. Your images will pop with the striking colors of the red rock formation, the earth around it, and the blue sky setting the picture off in the most instagrammed place in Australia.

  1. Wow, I didn't realize that Instagram could have such a big influence on where people go on vacation. I have to look into that for our summer vacation. Granted, Australia sounds wonderful. But at the moment out of our reach, being at the other side of the world ;)

  2. Great list! Australia is on our bucket list of places to visit soon!

  3. Oh wow! Thanks for this list. I'd love to visit Australia someday and now I have more places to try and see ♡. Hopefully someday soon!
