When it comes to sharing beautiful scenic photos, images of Darwin dominate, according to a new survey of Instagram users.
A popular app and website for sharing photos, Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media sites in the country with an estimated one million Australians already signed up to the service.
A recent survey of the site's users has found that many appear to be favouring natural Darwin landmarks for their more artistic snapshots – confirming that those with property in Darwin are living in one of the most photogenic locations in Australia.
Matt Conlan, minister for tourism and major events, says the results aren't surprising given that some of the most beautiful landmarks in the Northern Territory can be found in Darwin and the Top End.
"The study by The Works advertising agency found that the most frequent type of photo posted in Darwin was a scenic shot and that Darwin led all capital cities with the most photos posted per capita," Mr Conlan said in a June 17 statement.
"This goes to show that we really do have the best story and experiences here in the Territory and tourists can't wait to share it with the world."
Photographer and Instagram user Lauren Bath described the Territory as the best location for capturing a great scenic shot, citing "iconic Australian natural landmarks" such as Uluru and Kings Canyon.
