Sunflowers and sunsets in @sqcountry 🌻🌻🌻 @pla@playfullens captured this striking scene in #Cambooya, which is a small town near #Toowoomba in southern @queensland. Summer means sunflowers here - they bloom from November until February in this beautiful part of #Queensland. If you drive the back roads of this area you'll find plenty of excellent spots to stop and take some Instagram-worthy snaps; just remember to admire from afar and not to walk through local farmers' land without permission.

This is how we swim laps Down Under, not bad eh? Ocean and harbour pools are a @Sydney cultural institution, and can be found dotted along the coastline adjacent to beautiful beaches. Pictured here are the Bronte Baths, a photogenic ocean-fed pool that was built in the 1880s and is located at the southern end of #BronteBeach. If this takes your fancy, other popular pools to check out include Bondi Icebergs Pool, Dawn Fraser Baths in Balmain, Manly’s Fairy Bower Pool and Chowder Bay Baths in Mosman.

It's always a good morning in the Coffin Bay National Park! This untouched piece of paradise is in the @eyrepeninsula region of @southaustralia, around 45 minutes' drive from the seaside town of @port_lincoln. It's all about fishing, four-wheel-driving and just generally getting back to nature here. After visiting, you can expect to find sand in your shoes, car, tent and just about everywhere else. Our advice? Embrace it! Photo: @takeinoutside #seeaustralia #eyrepeninsula #seesouthaustralia #portlincoln #travel #explore

This is what hide-and-go-seek looks like, wombat-style. Good try Wendy, but we can still see you under all that dirt 😎 @dai@daisycharlottelodge captured this shot at the @visitsunshinecoast’s fabulous @australiazoo, where she’s lucky enough to work as a #zookeeper. Daisy loves a good #ani#animalselfie and her profile is full of cuddly koalas, beautiful birds and cute kangaroos - check it out for yourself!

We've saved you front row seats for sunset at @kingsparkandbotanicgarden in @experienceperth 👌 This gorgeous pocket of bushland sits smack bang in the middle of the city of #Perth, making it the perfect place for a morning stroll or to watch the sun go down before dinner. If you're a fitness fanatic, try Jacobs Ladder - it's a super steep set of around 300 hundred steps which will take you on a 43-metre ascent from Mounts Bay Road up to Kings Park. Or, if you're feeling leisurely, take a segway tour of Kings Park with @segwaytourswa for stunning views of the city and the river.

“Care to join me for a dip? It’s rather nice in!” - When the local seals are this polite, how could you possibly resist? This unreal nature experience can be had year-round with @und@under_water_safaris in the sheltered bays of #MontagueIsland, which is only a four hour drive from @sydney in the @eurobodalla region. Home to the largest fur seal colony on the @visitnsw coast, this thriving eco hub is also a breeding ground for around 12,000 Little Penguins.

This photogenic little nook on #KangarooIsland looks like the ideal spot to spend #summer, right?! In fact @authentickangarooisland, which lies off the mainland of @southaustralia, has a lovely average temperature of 25°C in summer. We think that’s absolutely perfect weather to spend exploring the island’s 540 kilometres of coastline, whether you choose to snorkel, fish and sandboard…. or simply find a nice quiet spot to float around for a few hours 🙌 Photo: @airloft #seesouthaustralia #southaustralia #adventure #travel #coast

Lavender for days at @bridestoweestate in @tasmania 💜 Take a tour of this incredible #lavender farm on our Instagram Stories now! ⬆️ The rows of lavender here are currently in full bloom so it's an excellent time to visit. The usual time to see the flowers in all their purple glory is from December through to early February, though this can vary slightly depending on the conditions of the season. #BridestoweEstate is just a 45-minute drive from the city of #Launceston in @northerntasmania, making it an easy day trip.

Sending you a slice of summer perfection from Tuncurry Rockpool in the @greatlakesnsw 💙 This ridiculously beautiful spot is around 3.5 hours' drive north of @sydney, and is a summer family favourite. You can swim, snorkel or float the day away in the crystal clear waters; be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins that regularly splash about here. If you'd rather be chasing waves than dolphins, grab a board and head over the break wall to Tuncurry Beach - the swell's particularly good on a sou-wester (that's the wind direction, in Aussie lingo!).

We know you love quokkas, but there’s more to @rottnestislandwa in @westernaustralia than its famous furry residents! We're referring to the 83 beautiful beaches and bays that can be found dotted around the coastline, each one unique in its own way, and all of them absolutely postcard-perfect. Some of the most popular spots that are not to be missed include The Basin, Little Parakeet Bay, Geordie Bay and Little Salmon Bay. You’re welcome 😉 Photo: @jasonnesbitt #RottnestIsland #justanotherdayinwa #nature #travel #island

Warning, you may want to take a seat - this photo could induce dizziness! The staggering view here is from the tip of #CapeHauy in @tasmania, which you'll reach on the final day of the spectacular #ThreeCapesTrack. For those who prefer a little touch of luxury and to walk with a guide, the brand new @greatwalksofoz Three Capes Lodge walk run by @taswalkingco will be right up your alley. Think deluxe private lodges, fine Tasmanian food and wine and massage treatments at the end of a long day of hiking. Bliss!

Who's up for a midweek massage? 🙋 This adorable swamp wallaby joey's name is Ruby and, as you can see here, she's rather partial to a good rub under the chin. She's being hand-raised by the dedicated team of keepers at @sym@symbiozoo in @visitnsw after being rejected by her mother. Symbio Wildlife Park is open seven days a week and is just an hour south of @sydney, so it makes for an easy day trip - the resident wallabies would love to meet you!
