As the old saying goes, if you didn’t Instagram it, it didn’t happen. Hang on, that’s a fairly recent saying. True though!
So in the interests of supporting a selfie, here’s our vote for Australia’s Top 5 Most Instagrammable Road Trips.

#15nationalparks #5WorldHeritageAreas #Undergroundcaves…you get the picture.
Great Alpine Road
The Great Alpine Road, Australia’s highest accessible sealed road from Benalla to Mallacoota in Victoria is open all year round and winds its way past #landscapes #vineyards, #goldmines and #oldquainttownships steeped in rich history. It’s too gorgeous to miss.
#convicthistory comes alive on the Heritage Highway, linking Hobart and Launceston. It was built by convict gangs in the 1800s. These days things have improved somewhere – there’s no forced labour involved in the rock climbing, mountain biking, fishing and hiking on the route, not to mention Pontville and Kenton’s fine whisky and gin distilleries.
Do go #chasingwaterfalls as you weave your way through New England and over the Great Dividing Range on the aptly named Waterfall Way. Catch a smug selfie in front of the second highest waterfall in Australia, Wollomombi as it cascades 220m into spectacular Wollomombi Gorge.
Southern Ocean Drive
Follow the Southern Ocean Drive, from Adelaide to Mt Gambier and you’ll get #wineries, #extinctvolcanoes, #worldheritagewetlands and #wildlife all into your captions. Sweet! Take the 45-minute ferry ride from the Fleurieu Peninsula to Kangaroo Island and you’ll be able to Instagram close encounters with kangaroos, koalas, penguins and seals. Nothing like #makingfriendswithwildlife to get the comments flowing on your Instagram account!
