Top 5 Australian Instagram accounts for content inspiration

When it comes to content creation it’s important to avoid having tunnel vision. Yes, recurring content that you know your audience loves and engages with is great, however it’s also important to keep things fresh and try new content to increase engagement, attract new followers and keep your existing followers engaged over time.

Naturally you’re going to follow instagram accounts that align with your interests and the industry that you're in. This can be great for getting ideas of what content your competitors and industry leaders are creating, although it can also lead to tunnel vision. In this article, we’ll share 5 of our favourite Instagram accounts (not biased towards one industry) that we feel are killing it in terms of content creation, to help you think outside of the box and outside of your industry.

Before you take a look, consider starting a Pinterest board or note down all the content ideas that come to mind from looking at the below accounts.
