Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

FIVE fun-lov­ing In­sta­gram­mers took in a whirl­wind tour of the won­der­ful White­haven Beach on Fri­day.

Jar­rad Seng (@jar­rad­seng), Kate Duffy (@kate_­duffy), Melissa Find­ley (@melis­safind­ley), Scott Sin­ton (@scot­tys­in­ton), Lau­ren Bullen (@gypsea_lust) and Re­bec­cca (@the­hatch­ling) are on a road trip from to Bris­bane to Cairns pro­mot­ing regional des­ti­na­tions for Tourism and Events Queens­land.

They will be up­load­ing their best photos to the pop­u­lar photo shar­ing so­cial me­dia site In­sta­gram as they go.

On Fri­day they took in the best the Whit­sun­days has to of­fer and ul­ti­mate candy for the op­tic nerve at White­haven Beach and their im­ages are noth­ing short of spec­u­lar.

Jar­rod said the ex­pe­ri­ence at White­haven was “su­per amaz­ing”.

“We flew over via sea­plane and just spent a few hours frol­ick­ing around,” he said.

“It’s pretty amaz­ing. The colour of the wa­ter is just amaz­ing.

“We were all freak­ing out. Not even silently freak­ing out. Au­di­bly freak­ing out. I am pretty sure Melissa shed a tear, it is just that beau­ti­ful.”

The group is made up of pho­tog­ra­phers, who use proper cam­era equip­ment be­fore us­ing their smart phones to post to so­cial me­dia.

Kate Duffy, from Tourism and Events Queens­land, said the goal of the road trip was to show the des­ti­na­tions in a slightly dif­fer­ent light, to of­fer some­thing unique.

“For tourism, to be able to ac­tu­ally put peo­ple in the ex­pe­ri­ence is re­ally im­por­tant.

“When we work with In­sta­gram­mers it’s about find­ing peo­ple that can bring a des­ti­na­tion to life an high­light the ex­pe­ri­ences the trav­eller can have in that des­ti­na­tion.”
