VisitCanberra’s most beloved Instagram photos from 2021 | Canberra Times

news, latest news, canberra photography

So much has happened this year that it’s sometimes hard to remember the magical moments that meant so much to us that we captured them and posted them on Instagram. From the July snowstorm to spectacular sunsets and a dining experience at The Dock, which tumbled on the nose of it all with Covid. All of these moments were among VisitCanberra’s most liked Instagram photos in 2021. As a response to the trend established in 2020, outdoor and nature activities were at the forefront. Popular areas for recreational activities, including the Canberra National Arboretum, Lake Burley Griffin and Shepherd’s Lookout, all ranked highly. Canberra’s colors, displayed throughout the season, were a common thread throughout the 10 most similar images. The most popular post in 2021 caught a spontaneous snowstorm in July and shared videos from three fans @lochvia, @ sophie_0803 and @littlelistofmine. The videos show snow falling in backyards, roadsides and the Corin forest, and they collected more than 6000 likes, 1300 shares and 200 comments. In a year when many lived close to home, the surrounding region offered new experiences that thrilled locals and future visitors. The Yarrangobilly Caves, just south of Namadgi National Park, and the London Bridge Arch in Googong, photographed by @brookemaxwell and @canberra_collective respectively, provided inspiration for those who wanted to move up in their training routine. The dining dome at The Dock on the Kingstong Foreshore caught the collective eye when it was launched in May. A new kind of Canberra bubble that we could not wait to get into. VisitCanberra picked up close to 10,000 new followers on Instagram, growing from around 72,000 to 82,000. Fans of Canberra have embraced the #visitcanberra hashtag on Instagram and have shared more than 540,000 images that provide visitors and the community with inspiration since the beginning of the hashtag.
