"Broome at high tide. There’s nothing like the feeling of being in just the right place at just the right time. ❤️💙💫" – @saltywings you took the words right out of our mouth – not to mention left us hopelessly in love with this shot 📷 snapped in @AustraliasNorthWest! Take your time and explore the vast varieties of native and aquatic animals, learn about the different types of mangrove trees and experience the forest and traditional uses of mangrove wood. At low tide the mangroves are alive with mud skippers, mudcrabs and a variety of birds. Is anyone else up for a trip to #Broome ASAP to enjoy the red rock, impossibly blue water and lush green mangroves in person? 🙋#justanotherdayinWA #thisisWA #WesternAustralia #seeaustralia #australiasnw

Located on the coast of Western Australia, the town of Broome is one beautiful melting pot of different cultures. The meeting point of Broom’s striking red rocks and the Coral Sea’s cerulean blue waters is one sight to behold. Besides this, the town also encapsulates two of Australia’s iconic landscapes; the outback and the beach. So if you want to spend a nice long weekend exploring wide-open beaches and surreal landscapes, Broome is one stunning place to visit. You
can also fly directly to Broome from Perth, Melbourne or Sydney.

SEE THE MILKY WAY GLISTENING ABOVE ULURU

An iconic Australian landmark- Uluru is famous for two things- the remarkable red landscapes and the stars glistening right above that. The Milky Way Galaxy shining above this iconic landscape is one breathtaking sight you wouldn’t want to miss.

It’s underwater playtime with our favourite friends, the rare Australia #SeaLion. Swimming in the wild is the only way we like to interact with our marine life in South Australia which means you may or may not receive a wet, whiskery kiss. But, chances are high so be prepared to pucker up like @wanderingwilsons 😘 between September and June in the @eyrepeninsula which is when the sea lion season is in full swing with @adventurebaycharters. Follow the rules of the locals and duck-dive, weave, twist and turn when you’re in the water because that’s how playtime goes around here. Swipe right for the dance moves ➡️ Half-day tours run regularly and it’s an absolute must-do when you’re in @visitportlincoln! #seesouthaustralia [ 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide and a 30 minute flight or 8 hr drive to #PortLincoln in #SouthAustralia] #adventurebaycharters #eyrepeninsula #summer #seeaustralia #australia

From watching the friendly sea lions take a leap in the crystal clear waters of South Australia’s Port Lincoln to testing your nerve in a cage dive with some of the world’s largest great white sharks, the Eyre Peninsula is a place known for its incredible natural beauty and dazzling shades of blue. People also travel from different parts of the world every year between May and August to watch the annual gathering of 250,000 giant Australian cuttlefish.

"Endless untouched beach in this incredible part of WA" – looks like 📷 @wanderingthewild_ has discovered the magic of #Ningaloo. While a dip into the intensely hued ocean here is reason enough to visit, it's what lies beneath the surface 🐠🐋🐚 in the world's largest fringing reef that will blow your mind! This @AustraliasCoralCoast location has made it onto the @unescoworldheritage list for its incredible biodiversity, plus it's one of the few places in the whole world where you can swim 🏊 with whale sharks – the largest fish in the ocean. Whether you experience Ningaloo in the water or cruising the surface, it's easy to see why people everywhere fall in love with this incredible destination. #justanotherdayinWA #thisisWA #WesternAustralia #seeaustralia #amazingcoralcoast

Ningaloo Marine Park- a World Heritage-listed site found half way up the west Australian coastline is known for its unique coral gardens and a majestic marine life. The white sandy shores touching the crystalline water is delightful to watch. Adding more to its beauty are some adorable creatures who congregate in large numbers underwater. It also harbours the world’s largest (a 260 kilometre long) coral reef swarming with turtles, humpback whales, tropical fish, manta rays and whale sharks. So if you’ve always dreamed of swimming with these adorable creatures, here’s your chance to do that. For those who want to observe the habitat closely, you can plan an exceptional stay in a luxury campsite metres from the coral reef.
