Australia, surrounded by stunning beaches and world-famous landmarks, is a ’grammers paradise. But hidden away from the famous icons and tourist traps lay beauties only known to a select few, just waiting to be explored and snapped up. Sydney based travel and landscape photographer, Mitch Green has compiled a list of his country’s best kept secret Instagram locations.

1. Centre Place, Melbourne

a.k.a Melbourne’s Diagon Alley.

2. Allora, Queensland

One of those scenes where it’s actually impossible to take a bad photo.

3. Lucky Bay, Western Australia

Paradise beach? Check. Aussie icon? Check. Epic Insta pic? Check.

4. Mrs Macquarie’s Point

A better view of Sydney’s skyline you will not find.

5. Liffey Falls, Tasmania

Best consumed with a healthy dose of rain.

Midweek mini-break anyone? Oh how wonderful it would be to be dipping my toes into the cool waters of Liffey Falls right now 💚

If there were a lighthouse emoji, this would be it.
