TOP INSTAGRAM ROCKPOOLS
Cape Schanck – Mornington Peninsula (@lukedavidphotos)
A Mornington Peninsula hot spot, Pulpit Rock is best explored in the light of an early morning sunrise where a wash of mosaic rock formations are viewable through crystal clear turquoise waters.
Hollow Mountain, Grampians (@rayzorgraphy)
Recommended for the energetic and young at heart, a little bit of rock scrambling along the Hollow Mountain walk is worth it for a true glimpse of the National Park’s terrain, complete with edgy rocks, mountain views and a seemingly endless expanse of green forest.
Port Lonsdale, Queenscliff (@rozef)
The sandstone rock formations at Port Lonsdale are teaming with marine life, awaiting eager aquatic explorers. Calm, shallow waters, plenty of parking and lighthouse views make the perfect family destination.
Cape Conran, Marlo (@jemmalee_c)
Wander wide sandy beaches and rocky outcrops or watch the waves roll in at Yeerung Beach. Beyond its reputation for fishing bliss, explore the sparkling rivers and rock pools that are dotted throughout the park
Blanket Bay, Great Otway National Park (@matt_krumins_workshops)
Nestled in the Great Otway National Park along the Great Ocean Road, discover a stunning, protected beach with rock pools that play the role of mirror to even the most golden sunsets.
Croajingolong National Park, Gippsland (@visitgippsland via @wild.ark)
An idyllic spot for outdoor enthusiasts, there's no shortage of opportunities for swimming, diving, snorkelling or sea kayaking at Croajingolong National Park. The glittering aqua blue water makes it a paradise for photographers with countless opportunities to capture that perfect Instagram moment.
Flinders, Morning Peninsula (@everythingin4d)
Stunning summer strolls are made even more beautiful by venturing a little further into areas like Flinders where rock pools, sheltered from crashing waves are perfect for a cheeky dip.
Squeaky Beach, Gippsland (@edenchair)
Through the coastal scrub and across a little running stream lies Squeaky Beach. With views to distant islands and pristine white sand, these granite formations are less for explorers, instead forming the perfect backdrop for a dip in the crystal clear postcard ocean water.
Rollasons Falls, Mt Buffalo National Park (@josh.tagi05)
Rollasons Falls remains one of High Country's hidden gems. Take in the views at the Upper Falls lookout or venture down for a dip in the Lower Falls.
Ladies Bath Falls, Mount Buffalo (@youngadventuress)
Another High Country favourite, the stunningly serene Ladies Bath Falls is a popular rest stop for hikes up the hill. The water flows downs from the mountain creek and has been known to be as cold as it is beautiful.
