Top 10 most liked #VisitCanberra 'grams of 2021

Updated 21 May 2022

If you didn't 'gram it, did it even happen?

A spontaneous snow flurry, spectacular sunsets, and beautiful vistas were amongst the most liked images on VisitCanberra’s Instagram in 2021.

This year #VisitCanberra fans loved exploring the great outdoors. Strolls through autumn leaves near Lake Burley Griffin, seeing the forests of rare and endangered trees at the National Arboretum, watching the sun set at Shepherds Lookout, playing in the snow at Corin Forest, spotting native animals at London Bridge Arch and exploring nearby Yarrangobilly Caves were amongst the most popular past times.

Hot air ballooning above the capital, dining in a dome under the stars, and ascending the grand stair made of reclaimed wood at Ovolo Nishi also made the top ten.

2. Kosciuszko National Park

In a year where many stayed close to home, the surrounding region offered new experiences that excited locals and would-be visitors. One of #VisitCanberra fans' favourite day trip adventures in the region is to Yarrangobilly Caves on the other side Namadgi National Park. The area is dotted with six limestone caves like this one captured by @brookemaxwell that have been formed over millions of years - these can be explored on a self-guided or guided tour, followed by a dip in the thermal pool.

Who doesn't want to make a snowman in their backyard and see snow fall at Corin Forest?
