26 Instagram Captions For Studying Abroad In Australia & Having The Best Semester Yet

It's written in the stars that you're studying abroad in Australia. You're hanging out with kangaroos, spending afternoons on the white, sandy beaches, and planning various trips and excursions. What the universe didn't tell me, though, is that you've already been in this beautiful country for a few months. In fact, you have a full camera roll on your phone to prove it! So, let me take a wild guess: You're in desperate need of some Instagram captions for studying abroad in Australia, and spending the best semester down under. Well, you've come to the right place, because I have you covered.

You could call it a little cocky maybe, but I'm an Instagram pro. I've posted lots of travel and lifestyle #content. I've also downloaded and tried just about every editing app on the market, and could tell you which preset packs or filters to buy. But, what really makes me qualified to give you a bunch of captions for your semester abroad is this: I've been there.

Well, I haven't been to Australia, exactly. I have spent an entire five months in Florence, Italy, though — adventuring to different countries and coastlines, and taking pictures of just about everything. So, I know that that's the thing about studying abroad: Every street corner, authentic plate of food, historical landmark, or crashing wave is worth taking that once-in-a-lifetime photo. It's worth getting extra storage on your phone or purchasing a high-end photography camera just to have those experiences captured forever.

I promise that I won't let you down. These 26 captions will help you seal those moments in time on social media, and recreate them for your followers. The rest of your semester in Australia is going to be just lovely. Send me a postcard, OK?
