Fans of Canberra have embraced the #visitcanberra hashtag on Instagram, with more and more people using it to share their Canberra images.
More than 80,000 images were tagged with #visitcanberra on Instagram last year bringing the total number to more than 166,000 images.
The most popular fan image featured by VisitCanberra in 2016, with 2,424 likes and 49 comments, was a double exposure created by Instagrammer @akirawisnu of the highly-Instagrammable supermoon and the Urambi Hills Nature Reserve. It is now also the most popular image featured by VisitCanberra ever.
Scenic shots continue to consistently receive the most likes on @VisitCanberra’s account; people just love Canberra’s wide open spaces, lakes, mountains, sunsets and sunrises, and dramatic skyline. Telstra Tower in particular was a popular photography subject appearing in five of the top ten images, while Lake Burley Griffin starred in four.
When it comes to the most commented images shared by @VisitCanberra, food and coffee are popular subjects this year including 38 Espresso’s Bacon Piccolo and Koko Black’s Dessert Degustation. Bushwalking locations, like Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, and the ever-popular Canberra Balloon Spectacular also proved comment worthy.
