Hashtag blessed.

Australia’s beaches are the best place in the world to start your day.


But don’t just stand there gawping!

The sky blew up for about 15 minutes this morning. It even stopped some folk in their tracks! #bondi #sunrise @sydney @australia

Get involved.

Seriously. GET INVOLVED!

Because fortune favours the brave.

And you’ve got to be in it to win it.

Jump for joy it's Christmas Day! Merry Christmas one and all. ☀️#byronbay

The rewards are majestic!

If you like water and workouts, you’re in the right place.

How about stand up paddleboarding with your dogs?

Not a fan of salt water? Australia has you covered.

Kayaking in the Kimberley is basically Paddling in Nirvana by another name.

Or maybe you’d rather be stand up paddleboarding up Margaret River?

Got a feeling this scenery gonna get a few likes 😉 #seeaustralia #westernaustralia #australiassw #margaretriver #thisiswa

Or perhaps the ultimate combo: kayaking and snorkeling on WA’s Ningaloo Reef?

Like your pursuits a little more strenuous?

Walking more your thing? We have some epic trails: like the hike into Tasmania’s Cradle Mountains.

The seriously EPIC views from the summit of Tasmania’s Mount Wellington.

WA’s epically grand Cape Le Grand national park.

Or the rugged canyons of the Blue Mountains.

Symbiosis Yesterday I rediscover this amazing Blue Mountains canyon. I'd not been through the canyon for a couple of years and the sheer beauty was mesmerising. Even the best photographs cannot capture the true nature of this place and the bombardment of your senses as you travel through the canyon – the changes from peaceful silence to what sounds like a raging torrent created by the sound of the smallest waterfall reverberating off the canyon walls, the transition from bright open secti…ons to dark tunnels with only the light from glow worms piercing the darkness, the swirls of moisture as you breathe out into rays of sunlight piercing through the canopy above, the slowly rising steam off your warming wetsuit and the beads of water dripping off the canyon walls. All of this is exacerbated ten-fold when you’re hyper-sensitive due to the potential for snakes hiding in the rocks beneath your feet. The slightest scurry or movement in the corner of your eye stops you in your tracks until you realise it’s just a goanna or yabby. I can only imagine the range of emotions the first explorers must have experienced passing through this canyon in the 1960s. The canyon would have been very similar to today but they would not have known whether there were impenetrable obstructions or sudden drops with no natural boulders or logs to fix their ropes to. Once you have started going down these canyons, often the only way is down until the canyon opens out. Accessing this canyon requires specialist equipment, skills and experience in abseiling, canyoning and wilderness navigation. Canyon guiding companies operate in the Blue Mountains. This is a four-exposure photo to accurately capture the huge dynamic range (difference between the lightest and darkest areas of the scene) and to ensure foreground to background focus. Shot with a Sony A7R with Sony-Zeiss 16-35mm f4 lens @ 16mm and f/8, 1/3 – 1/25s, ISO100-200. @beautifuldestinations #Canyoneering #Canyoning #bluemountains #adventure #Wilderness #Visitnsw #welovecanyoning

That said, it’s okay to take a break sometimes.

To feel the Fleurieu Peninsula serenity.
