WA’s best natural backdrops

#NoFilter: Where to find WA’s best natural backdrops for your Instagram feed

In Western Australia, we’re surrounded by so much natural beauty, particularly in our national parks and reserves. From cascading waterfalls and evergreen forests to deep blue oceans and red earth desert, WA’s diverse locations offer the perfect settings for photos that are sure to make your Instagram feed pop – no filter needed!

To help you scout the perfect photo location, we thought we’d share our list of the most instagrammable nature spots across WA. Why not take your camera and explore these destinations during our 30 Day Nature challenge?

We’d love to see your pics so don’t forget to follow @ourwaparks and share your photos of our WA parks using the hashtag #springintoparks.

  1. Nature’s Window – Kalbarri
    It doesn’t get more picture-perfect than Nature’s Window in Kalbarri where a natural frame, created by wind-eroded sandstone, captures stunning views of the Murchison River below. Whether you take a pic of the window itself, or in its frame, this is a truly spectacular photo to add to your Instagram.



  2. The Pinnacles – Nambung
    You’ll be hard-pressed to find a site more vibrant than the Pinnacles in Cervantes’ Nambung National Park. The contrast of thousands of limestone pillars rising from golden sand against a blue sky creates an Instagram backdrop that’s hard to beat. And if you are after picture of the beautiful night sky, head to the Spring into Parks event on 19 October.







  3. Fern Pool – Karijini
    Tucked away in Dales Gorge, Karijini National Park, Fern Pool is a perfect natural swimming hole. Surrounded by red rocks and earth, the contrast of its cool turquoise waters also make it one hot Instagram shot. So pack your bathers and a towel and prepare to be blown away by this totally gorgeous oasis.



  4. Lucky Bay – Cape Le Grand
    No Instagram feed is complete without a white sandy beach (especially in WA)! Lucky for you, there’s a beach of the very same name located in Cape Le Grand National Park in Esperance. Lucky Bay is about as stunning as it gets with crystal blue waters and bright white shores. It’s so pristine, even the local kangaroos enjoy hopping down to the water’s edge. Plus, if you visit between July and October, you may even see whales migrating offshore – now that’s a photo opp!




  5. Valley of the Giants – Walpole
    If you’re seeking some seriously incredible views then Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk is a must-see photo destination. Walpole-Nornalup National Park is where you can find the region’s famous 40m high Tree Top Walk where you can walk amidst a canopy of giant eucalypts, and capture photos of the green tingle forest below.
