News story

Could your Instagram feed do with a little brightening up? Look no further! As well as being a great place to study, Curtin is home to some gorgeous architecture, artwork and greenery. Here are five of our favourite Instagram-worthy spots on campus.

An architecturally interesting wooden staircase in the architecture building

The cactus outside Building 204 near Lower Henderson. Cacti are everywhere on Instagram. We know it, you know it. However, there’s no denying that this huge one outside the Engineering Building is super photogenic and definitely worthy of a visit.

The alleyway in the Guild Precinct (Building 106). Who says you need to go to Melbourne to get the perfect laneway snap? Just head over to the Guild Precinct and your feed will be looking vibrant and edgy in no time.

The garden outside Buildings 310 and 402. This garden is one of the most-snapped spots on campus for a reason – it looks magical! We recommend visiting at night time so your camera really picks up the fairy lights wrapped around the trees.

The staircase in Building 304. This modern geometric staircase is arguably one of the most stunning pieces of architecture on campus. The quiet study area on the first floor of Building 304, which actually looks more like a minimalist café, is also very Instagram-worthy.

Any of the murals. Seriously, they’re all over the place and they all look incredible. This colourful surrealist one outside the Library near Atkinson Forum is one of our favourites.
