In association with Tourism Australia

It’s true. Blue indeed is the warmest colour. It can speak to our mind and have the most calming effect. Which is why resting under a beach umbrella, overlooking the sea while sipping on to your mimosas doesn’t seem like a bad idea. 

*There there*  Don’t cry up thinking about your failed holiday plans just yet. Because we’ve brought you the best of soothing blue, manifested in the serene skies and glistening waters of Australia. 

So sit back and let the magical hues of blue from the beautiful land down under, take over your senses. 

1. Red Rocks meeting the aqua Coral Sea in Broome

“Broome at high tide. There’s nothing like the feeling of being in just the right place at just the right time. ❤️💙💫” – @saltywings you took the words right out of our mouth – not to mention left us hopelessly in love with this shot 📷 snapped in @AustraliasNorthWest! Take your time and explore the vast varieties of native and aquatic animals, learn about the different types of mangrove trees and experience the forest and traditional uses of mangrove wood. At low tide the mangroves are alive with mud skippers, mudcrabs and a variety of birds. Is anyone else up for a trip to #Broome ASAP to enjoy the red rock, impossibly blue water and lush green mangroves in person? 🙋#justanotherdayinWA #thisisWA #WesternAustralia #seeaustralia #australiasnw

It’s underwater playtime with our favourite friends, the rare Australia #SeaLion. Swimming in the wild is the only way we like to interact with our marine life in South Australia which means you may or may not receive a wet, whiskery kiss. But, chances are high so be prepared to pucker up like @wanderingwilsons 😘 between September and June in the @eyrepeninsula which is when the sea lion season is in full swing with @adventurebaycharters. Follow the rules of the locals and duck-dive, weave, twist and turn when you’re in the water because that’s how playtime goes around here. Swipe right for the dance moves ➡️ Half-day tours run regularly and it’s an absolute must-do when you’re in @visitportlincoln! #seesouthaustralia [ 1 hr flight from Melbourne to #Adelaide and a 30 minute flight or 8 hr drive to #PortLincoln in #SouthAustralia] #adventurebaycharters #eyrepeninsula #summer #seeaustralia #australia

4. The azure waters of Ningaloo Marine Park

“Endless untouched beach in this incredible part of WA” – looks like 📷 @wanderingthewild_ has discovered the magic of #Ningaloo. While a dip into the intensely hued ocean here is reason enough to visit, it’s what lies beneath the surface 🐠🐋🐚 in the world’s largest fringing reef that will blow your mind! This @AustraliasCoralCoast location has made it onto the @unescoworldheritage list for its incredible biodiversity, plus it’s one of the few places in the whole world where you can swim 🏊 with whale sharks – the largest fish in the ocean. Whether you experience Ningaloo in the water or cruising the surface, it’s easy to see why people everywhere fall in love with this incredible destination. #justanotherdayinWA #thisisWA #WesternAustralia #seeaustralia #amazingcoralcoast
