6 Hot Spots For The Ultimate Insta Shot

Do It For The Gram

Let's be real - Taking that perfect Insta-shot is a fine art. You need the right lighting, the right outfit, and, of course, the right background. Finding the perfect place to take that perfect shot can be hard sometimes, so we've found six incredible spaces for that perfect selfie - So grab your gal pals and your camera and go make your feed look beautiful!

Robina Town Centre | Robina

Robina Town Centre isn't generally the first place we think of when we think of cool photo spots - But with their upcoming trick-art gallery set to be revealed in the coming months, the space is about to get a whole lot cooler! The plans are currently being kept super secret, but word has it that fifteen artists are currently working behind the scenes to create an incredible 80 pieces of art to complete ArtVo's trick-art gallery - And with plenty of photo opportunities available once it's revealed, it's an absolute must-do for the 'gram!

MexiCali | Nobby Beach

As much as we all joke about it, we all secretly (or not so secretly) love to get that good old #foodporn shot when we got out to eat - But down at MexiCali you can actually get a super cute selfie too with their vibrant mural! Open primarily for dinners, your best bet at getting a cute shot with this wall is to head there before MexiCali opens - But if you head down on Sunday's, you can grab a cute insta-shot then grab lunch out too!

Home of the Arts | Bundall

We know, we know. When we say HOTA, we often think of art and performances - But did you know they've actually got some super cute painted murals out the back as well? Created as part of a beautification process a little while back, HOTA is home to a couple of stunning sheds right near the lake, painted beautifully with leaves and rainforest decor to make for a really cute insta shot without traveling all the way out to the National Parks. There's also plenty of shade and picnic tables nearby, so why not pack a lunch and make an afternoon out of it?

Springbrook National Park

Is there anywhere better to go for that ultimate Insta shot than a national park full of waterfalls? No - I didn't think so. We may be moving into the cooler months but Springbrook National Park is still full of incredible places to get that cute insta pic, with plenty of easy bush trails and waterfalls hidden all over the place for you to explore and pose in front of. There's also a couple of stunning lookouts as well, so if you can wake up early enough to enjoy the sunrise there, you'll get a truly stunning photo! (Otherwise you can always go for sunset too!)

Gather Store | Currumbin

If you haven't heard of Gather Store in Currumbin, it's a super-cute flower and homewares space full of stunning colours perfect to decorate your house with - But they also have an incredible dried flower bar, and it's the perfect place to grab a bright, colourful selfie! They constantly keep their dried flower wall stocked with vibrant pretties so you'll always have plenty of colour for your feed, but with so many stunning options, why not buy a bunch (or two) and brighten up your space at home as well!

Borrowed Nursery | Mermaid Beach

Let's be real - The Coast is all about wood and plants right now, so it's only right that you duck into Borrowed Nursery for some green to freshen up your feed! Stocking a huge number of plants great and small you'll find plenty of beautiful pieces to pose with, but be warned - You might fall in love so much you'll just want to take them home with you!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
