Photo-fact alert!

Whether you’re into selfies, holiday snaps or artistic photographic expression using your twenty-thousand dollar Nikon, Australia is just one, big, girt-by-sea, colourfest of Instagrammable goodness.

If any country is worthy of envy-inducing, social media imagery; it’s Australia. We’ve got landscape, lighting, wildlife and larrikins in spades and make no mistake, the scenery in our wine regions can tart it up like nowhere else.

We’ve got 77 wine regions in Australia – and even more sub-regions – and I double dare you to come up with even one that doesn’t come up with ‘Grammable goods.

For starters, you can cut sick with your camera at:

  1. Orange. You weren’t expecting snow, were you? This pic was taken at Colmar Estate – a 6-hectare vineyard nestled in the slopes of the extinct volcano, Mt Canobolas in the Orange region of New South Wales.

2. The Huon Valley. South of Hobart, this region follows the course of the Huon River as it flows into the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. In Birches Bay, deep in Tasmania’s south is Hartshorn Distillery.

3. Anywhere you can enjoy wine in a hammock in South Australia …. Like for example in one of the 18 wine regions: Adelaide Plains, Adelaide Hills, Barossa, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Currency Creek, Eden Valley, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Mount Benson, Mount Gambier, Padthaway, Riverland, Robe, Southern Fleurieu, Southern Flinders, and Wrattonbully.

4.  The Yarra Valley. East of Melbourne, as you can see, is a cool climate region. This was taken in one of the two Mandala Wines vineyards in the rolling hills there.

5.  Heathcote. This is at Merindoc in the heart of Central Victoria and nestled beneath the stunning McHarg and McIvor Ranges. The southern of the Heathcote region, is on the sweeping slopes of the Macedon Ranges and features granite soils and cool night temperatures.
