12 Canberrans to follow on Instagram

Hayley O'Neill

From fitness stars to fashion influencers, cute puppies to amazing dishes, we have the 12 Canberrans you need to be following on Instagram now.

Instagram is the social media platform taking the world by storm. It is a community of more than 300 million who capture and share the world’s best moments.

As a result, Instagram has become the home for visual storytelling and Canberrans are jumping on board by creating beautiful news feeds that are gaining large followings.

We learnt just what it takes to be ‘Instafamous’ at the Margaret Zhang Instagram Workshop held at the Canberra Centre earlier this month, so we’ve taken a look at Canberra’s best Instagram accounts:
