Instagrams of the Week: South Pacific Memories

August 28, 2015 Mark Bonington

Want diversity? Get yourself to Australia and New Zealand. The pristine beaches, rugged terrain and bustling coastal cities in this part of the world are the living embodiment of variety. Sprawling deserts, enormous forests, snow-capped mountains and coral reefs teeming with aquatic life show off nature at it’s very best, and the busy, multicultural cities are packed with interesting folks with stories to share. Prepare to have the limits of your imagination expanded tenfold.

Scroll down and enjoy some of the unique moments captured by our travellers from these inspiring countries.

#Gadv traveller @hannah_rose_mary explores the beautiful Franz Josef Glacier, New Zealand. Located on the South Island, this natural wonder is over 12km long!

The bright lights of Brisbane, a vibrant cultural metropolis of Queensland, Australia. Thanks to our own @goritski_gadv for this share!

Uluru, one of Australia’s most iconic natural wonders. The aboriginal people believe this site to be the birthplace of creation and a home for ancestral spirits. Thanks to #gadv traveller @b_tinchen for this dramatic shot.

Traveller @devito1991 snapped this sleepy koala in Australia. A popular symbol of the country, koalas will snooze for up to 20 hours a day due to their diet of eucalyptus plants.

The cool waters of the Blue Mountains near the Jenolan Caves in New South Wales, Australia. Regram from @berties_travels. Who feels like a dive in?
