You don’t have to make the difficult choices or scroll through pages of incredible images: here are the top 3 Instagram worthy shots Down Under. Visit these places and you’re guaranteed to make all your friends and followers green with envy!

Sydney Harbour

What could be more iconic of city slicking in Oz than a picture of Sydney’s famous harbour? If you get your angles right, you can capture a beautiful picture of the unique Opera House with the rippling water and striking Harbour Bridge in the background. If you’re a perfectionist, visit at dawn or dusk when you can take advantage of gorgeous subtle lighting and avoid crowds of tourists cramping your style. No filter necessary here!

Ayers Rock (Uluru)

Ayers Rock is one of Australia’s most precious natural wonders. A giant monolith burning bright in the heart of the bush, no amount of guidebooks or Instagram snaps can prepare you for seeing this enormous stone stack in all its glory. Aim for a sunny day when the rays will illuminate the vivid red and orange hues of the rock and visit later in the day when the crowds have subsided and the temperature has cooled slightly. While you’re in the area, take the opportunity to meander around Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The Olgas, a collection of more than 30 dome-shaped rock formations, are well worth a visit for keen photographers.

The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of Planet Earth’s most photogenic wonders. A sprawling playground under the sea, if you’re armed with your phone, you can’t fail to showcase the amazing features of this unique, colourful underwater structure. There are islands bobbing in turquoise waters, dolphins popping in and out of the sea, pristine white silica sand beaches and even a tiny island shaped like a heart to drive your followers wild. One of the best ways to see the reef is taking a scuba diving tour or embarking on a sailing adventure and hopping around the pretty little islands. There are lots of different options available, and you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting the best snaps to share!
