laurenepbath My friends over at @SouthernGreatBarrierReef have asked me to remind everybody that IT'S TURTLE SEASON! At the moment all the eggs are being laid to become adorable adorable baby turtles early next year. If you haven't experienced this amazing event you definitely should! This was taken at Mon Repos early this year, close to Bundaberg. #SouthernGreatBarrierReef 22h

laurenepbath Aww, last Sydney shot and I'm not back for ages! (Or am I?) Taken from the Novotel Darling Harbour when I was so full I could hardly walk. Lol. @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 3d

laurenepbath My second-to last photo from my amazing night at the Novotel Darling Harbour. I literally only took about 20 photos and spent the rest of the time eating! lol. This was the Ginger Ninja Cocktail which made me giggle cause I'm a ginger. (Red head) @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 3d

laurenepbath Another one from the Novotel Darling Harbour, this time from the rooftop. We were all shooting the Harbour when I realized that @garry_norris had disappeared. Turns out he was photographing this epic sunset on the other side. I snapped a telephoto lens on just in time to capture this. @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 3d

laurenepbath I wanted to take the opportunity today to finally share some shots from my amazing night at the Novotel Darling Harbour last week. This was a job that I did for a special client and it involved cocktails with this hottie Matt, sharing a meal with amazing friends including Aussie actress @georgieparker , my besties @garry_norris and @jewelszee , the fantabulous @markclinton and the talented @shirty_i_am AND sunset on the roof of the hotel. I love my job! @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 4d

laurenepbath Good morning Instagram, I have an idea! For the next hour I am going to answer every single question that you guys ask me - how I travel the world, how I get paid, about being a pro Instagrammer, my gear, my settings, my favorite place ... You ask, I answer. I can't do this all day so I'll give you an hour from now. Go! 4d

laurenepbath One more from Gold Coast Indigenous group Jellurgal, I am so fascinated by traditional dance! I hope you’ve liked seeing some home town shots for a change. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 4d

laurenepbath My last Gold Coast koala photo, until next month probably. Haha. It’s so nice to be planning these Photo Meets and spending the time at home every month. Don’t forget to register for the next one if you haven’t already, we have a new guest instagrammer coming all the way from Canada! Link in my profile! @visitgoldcoast#visitgoldcoast 5d

laurenepbath Another shot from the Natural Bridge in Springbrook. There isn’t a lot of water there at the moment but the place still looks gorgeous! If anyone here is on Twitter and wants to learn more about my work I'll be live tweeting in one hour on #askthetravelexperts @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 5d

laurenepbath So yeah, this happened! I have to say that I am now more than convinced that Koala’s are the cutest animal in the entire world! @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 5d

laurenepbath Snapper rocks looking pretty in pink. If you look closely you can even spot some Instagrammers, gathered together for our November Gold Coast Photo Meet. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 5d

laurenepbath Omg, omg, omg! This is possibly the most adorable koala I have ever seen in all my life! As part of my week on the Gold Coast I got to go to Dreamworld and basically have fun on the rides. Giant Drop, Tower of Terror and the new Buzz Saw, I conquered them all and still found time to make photos! @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 6d

laurenepbath Sunrise! As usual when I rocked up to the Gold Coast Photo Meet to shoot sunrise I was too busy talking to people to focus on what I was doing. So this is all I have to show for my 3:15 AM wake up call! That’s right, 3:15! Loving summer, not! Lol. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 6d

laurenepbath A classic shot! I mean you can’t spend time shooting the Gold Coast without getting to the Arts Centre to photograph dusk over Surfers Paradise. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 6d

laurenepbath On our first Gold Coast Photo Meet we had a chance to meet Gold Coast
Indigenous group Jellurgal, members of the local Yugambeh Tribe. We thoroughly enjoyed the performance and photography afterwards. I don’t usually do things like this in my home town, maybe I should start? @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast

laurenepbath It’s been so awesome to have some time at home showing our Gold Coast Photo Meet guest “instagrammer” around. Of course we made the trek to the Natural Bridge and I didn’t tell @wisslaren about all the eels in the water until after he was out. Haha. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 7d

laurenepbath I’m alive! Phew, what a weekend! I came back from Sydney and launched straight into my first Gold Coast Photo Meet, a monthly initiative that I’m hosting with Gold Coast Tourism! If you missed this month please register for next month using the link in my profile. Met this adorable little guy at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 7d

laurenepbath I'm in Sydney! I flew down last night to have dinner with a group of my Instagram friends to promote the Ternary at Novotel Darling Harbour, their new dining experience. We mixed cocktails, ate about 20 courses of the most amazing food then took photos from the rooftop! I love what Instagram has made possible for so many people. @NovotelDarlingHarbour #NovotelDarlingHarbour 1w
