Bondi Beach is dominating social media according to the boffins at travel website iVenture Card, who having conducted a study into the most popular landmarks and attractions in Australia, found that Sydney is where the engagement happens.

The study reviewed the most visited 100 places in Australia, which included iconic hotspots such as Sydney Harbour Bridge, Great Ocean Road, and Uluru. The results showed that the average Australian on social media is far more likely to tag a photo of a Sydney landmark than anywhere else. Bondi Beach ranked first in the top 100 list.
