What should you unquestionably do before visiting Canberra? Exactly, grab your phone and open Instagram. To me, there is no better App for Travel-Inspiration. Find here a personal selection of my favourite Instagram Accounts to follow before visiting Canberra, the Capital of Australia. Everyone knows pictures of the main attractions of Sydney, Melbourne or even Perth. But what is the first thing that comes to your mind when thinking about typical Sights in Canberra? Honestly, probably not that much (as you’ve probably never even heard of Canberra, the Capital of Australia, before!?). Let’s change that! As I will be exploring the Capital Region of Australia (ACT), and Canberra up from next week, I did some research. And what better way to stay up-to-date on what’s going on in Canberra, than following local Instagram Accounts. Find here an overview of all the Instagram Accounts you should start following before visiting Canberra. It made me so excited for my upcoming trip and hopefully helps you researching and planning your future trip as well.
