  • Posted by on 22 December 2016

Nowadays when it comes to researching a holiday or trip, the internet is an imperative tool for information, pictures and making travel bookings. Everything is literally at your fingertips!

Social media is one of those tools that many travellers use to research holiday options and travel destinations. At the moment the Best of the Kimberley team are loving Instagram. Whether it’s following your favourite travel-related Instagram account, looking through travel hashtags for inspiration or purely procrastinating because who doesn’t love to dream about their next trip.

So what we have done is spent countless hours trawling through Instagram (it’s been hard work, but we did it for you!) to bring you, what we think about some of the best travel Instagram accounts in Australia! We think Australia is the perfect travel destination in 2017 so hopefully the below accounts get those feet itching with some new ideas.
