If your Instagram feed needs a little more pizzazz then look no further than the most Instagram worthy hotels in Australia. 

Emirates Wolgan Valley

Wolgan Valley Heritage Suite pool

Each villa at Emirates Wolgan Valley comes with your own private heated plunge pool.

A superstar of sophisticated seclusion Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley is an Insta success for your profile.

Wow your followers with landscape shots of the great Aussie bush on a walk around the property. Because animals are Insta winners, take one of the most pampered horses in Australia for a ride. Here is a hint, for something a little more arty try a black and white horsey shot. The Insta winner shot though is going to be from your own private plunge pool, tummy’s in everyone.

Check out our anonymous review of Emirates Wolgan Valley.


The Schaller Studio, Bendigo

accommodation weekends victoria

Works by Schaller adorn the walls of this Art Series hotel in Bendigo, Vic.

Originally opened in 2014 under Melbourne’s boutique hotel masters Art Series Hotels’, ‘The Schaller Studio’ has since been rebranded under the Quest hotels banner.

But don’t let that stop you. The Schaller rooms feature the namesake artists Mark Schaller’s works. Nothing lights up your feed like some bold colours, add a boutique hotel and this is Insta gold.

Sydney Sofitel Wentworth

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth

The terrace at Sofitel Wentworth (Sydney’s first five star hotel) is an oasis in the city.

Sofitel Wentworth Sydney has a long history of art and design, hosting several exhibitions a year – we particularly enjoyed their 50th Anniversary photography exhibition a few years back.

The artist in residency programs also add some flair every six to twelve months to what would be one of the moodiest and glamarous lobbies in Sydney. Make a beeline line for the Garden Courtyard for some beautiful small garden and food shots or look up for an architectural gem that make your followers oohh la la. Downstairs in Soirree tuck into the high tea with some Dom for some more #nomnomnom love.

Atlantic Byron Bay

The Atlantic Hotel Byron Bay

Seaside chic of the Atlantic Hotel

Byron Bay and a beautiful low key boutique hotel is a match made in Instagram heaven.

The Atlantic Byron Bay refers to itself as ‘a haven for creative souls’ and the Hamptonesque meets California bungalow styling will unleash all your Insta creativeness. The poolside shots will trick your followers into thinking you have jetted off to the West Coast like an A-Lister.

Check out our Byron Bay Bucket List.


Master peace: Sails in the Desert hop

Sails in the Desert, Uluru

The five star resort at Uluru, Sails in the Desert.

If Uluru itself is not enough to make your Insta notification buzz like a bee, then Sails in the Desert Hotel may just give you the extra edge.

Sails is littered with Insta ready artworks thanks to its monthly artist in residence. Oh, and a ‘craftsperson in residence’, too. After soaking in the wonder of an Uluru sunrise, relax and post poolside to show that Uluru is more than red rocks. For true Insta success, take in sunset and stroll amongst the ‘dot painting’ come to life’ that is Bruce Munro’s astonishing “Field of Light‘ experience.

Check out all you need to know about Uluru.
