Some of the most picturesque locations in the world can be found right here in Western Australia. From stunning white-sand beaches with crystal clear waters to breathtaking views of our national parks, you don’t need to leave the state to capture that perfect travel shot. Check out our top picks for Insta-worthy travel locations in Western Australia (your ‘gram game will thank us later).

Hamelin Bay

Not only a gorgeous beach, Hamelin Bay is most well-known for its famous marine life. Stingrays come to shore daily to greet visitors, so make sure you have an underwater camera (or drone) ready to capture this amazing encounter at one of WA’s most beautiful bays.

 

Lucky Bay

One of the most beautiful beaches in the world, expect perfect white sand and stunning turquoise water at Lucky Bay. Make sure to snap a picture with the many kangaroos who have made this spot their favourite coastal hangout.

 

Injidup National Spa

For those dedicated enough to brave a climb across the rocks, Injidup Natural Spa will provide the perfect Instagram shot. Waves crash over the rocks to form this gorgeous natural spa that travellers and locals alike can’t get enough of.

 

Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef is the world’s largest coastline reef and is home to an impressive array of marine life. Bring your underwater camera to capture the reef’s inhabitants, and if you’re lucky, you might get a shot with the whale sharks who are regular visitors at Ningaloo.

 

The Pinnacles

Large limestone pillars in a desert-like setting form the moonscape scenery of The Pinnacles. They are one of WA’s most recognised and unique landmarks, and, reaching up to 3.5m tall, these fragile structures form somewhat of an ‘alien’ landscape right here in WA.

 

Greens Pool

Greens Pool is enclosed by large boulders, protecting it almost completely from the waves of the ocean. Its seclusion and stunning turquoise water make for both a relaxing beach escape and great spot for Insta pics.

 

Valley of the Giants

This tree top walk puts you amongst the forest canopy, a whopping 40 metres in the air. Make sure to capture a picture of these hundred-year-old trees in all their beauty.

 

Karijini National Park

Western Australia’s second largest national park presents amazing photo opportunities with ancient gorges, hidden pools and stunning waterfalls. Hit Hancock Gorge for an enviable photograph; where the reddish hues of the rocks appear to blend into the clear water, making for a picturesque optical illusion.

 

Black Diamond Lake

Famous for its opulent turquoise colour, Black Diamond Lake is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. Don’t forget to bring your inflatable swan to lounge in the middle of the lake and capture the perfect shot.

 

Boranup Forest

Find yourself surrounded by 60-metre-high trees and bathing in soft, filtered sunlight in Boranup Forest. Enjoy a leisurely stroll as you snap photos of the forest’s towering trees, or take the scenic route along Boranup Forest Drive for endless photo opportunities.
