The perfect backdrop for Amanda Bisk’s body-bending (and mind-bending) Instagram shots are the beaches south of Perth, where the former pole vaulter lives.
“Margaret River has always been a great weekend getaway for me. If you’re up for some adventure, there’s everything from horseriding and quad bikes to cave exploring and water sports. And for those times that you just want to indulge, you’ll find some of the best wineries, breweries, cheeseries, olive farms, chocolate factories and restaurants in Australia. The whole region is incredible.
There are pristine beaches everywhere, with some of the bluest water you’ve ever seen. Some of my favourites are Eagle, Bunker and Hamelin bays and Meelup, Injidup, Smiths and Prevelly beaches. I think sunset over the water in WA is the best in the world.”
