Which Holiday Hotspots Are Snap-happy Instagrammers Hashtagging Most?
Come on, admit it. We've all done it. Scrolling through your Instagram feed, boiling with jealousy at your mates' travel pics, telling yourself "I've got to go there one day". Well, what are you waiting for? These are the top ten most hashtagged Australian destinations on Instagram — and YHA has hostels conveniently located to visit all of them. Don't forget to book direct through yha.com.au for the best rates (and really truly don't forget to tag #yhaoz & #UniBRIDGEproject).
1. Bondi Beach
The most famous beach in the world – and certainly one of the most famous hashtags.
2. Surfers Paradise
Grammers love the beach, including south-east Queensland’s most golden patch of sand.
5. St Kilda
Check out the bars, bakeries, and boutiques of Melbourne’s favourite beachside neighbourhood.
6. Sydney Opera House
Whether you reckon it looks like the sails on a yacht or bowls and plates drying in a dish rack, the Opera House is a magnet for Insta likes.
7. Great Barrier Reef
Sun, sand, snorkelling . . . and social media.
8. Sydney Harbour Bridge
Geez, Sydney Harbour’s hogging plenty of this top ten list.
If you trekked it to the red centre and didn’t Instagram it, did it even happen?
