Instagram FAQs

What’s this profile all about?
It’s about inspiring the world to visit the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. The account is managed by the team at Gold Coast Tourism, but the real work is done by all of our followers who share their stunning shots with us every day.  

How do I share my photos?
It’s super easy. Just add #WeAreGoldCoast, #VisitGoldCoast or #DestinationGoldCoast to your photo and the team will consider your image or video for a feature. You can also tag them with @DestinationGoldCoast too.

If I submit my image will it be used somewhere else apart from the @DestinationGoldCoast Instagram profile?
It might. From time to time we will feature some images on our Facebook page, our @Destgc Twitter profile or DestinationGoldCoast website. We may also occasionally contact you if we would like to use your image or video elsewhere.

How do you select the photos you feature?
Photos are selected based on Gold Coast Tourism’s campaign and brand messages and we’ll always give credit to the photographer or videographer in our posts.

You don’t need to be a professional photographer to have your photo featured but, remember, the team here will always check what else our followers will see if they click through to your profile.
