Australia is the number one hotspot when it comes to Instagram.

Combining hashtag popularity, survey results of Big 7 readers and votes cast by a panel of travel experts, Australia came out number one for the Gram!

But you know what is better than taking out the top spot of Instaworthy countries in the world… New Zealand only just scrapped into the Top 50, coming in at 45. Straya!

How did Australia rank number one?

Natural beauty and buzzy cities is how Australia took out the top of the Insta pops.

Australia scored top marks for its popular hashtag and geolocations on social media. It also impressed both Big 7 readers and their travel judging panel with its natural beauty and buzzy cities – want photogenic beaches and slick coffee spots? Australia is where it is at!

Perth especially got a call out – while Sydney and Melbourne tend to get the most attention from tourists coming to Australia, Big 7 said “you’d be missing out by not making the trip out west to Perth.”

Also technically speaking as Indonesia came at number 4 and with a hat tip to Bali, we can also claim another win for Australia with WA’s most northern point cracking a top 5 mention aswell.

So where are the best Instagram locations within Australia?
