Days by the beach

Nothing says summer as much as spending long days soaking up rays on the beach. Whether we’d find you riding the waves, cooling down by the shore or exploring secret swimming spots, the Sky Blue mini film is a seaside essential with the pastel blue frame making the cool tones of the ocean and sky pop!


Coastal walk adventures

Some of the most exciting adventures are by foot, and with a fresh ocean breeze to cool down the summer sun, look no further than a coastal walk. Whether you’re a fan of Sydney’s Bondi to Coogee or Noosa’s National Park walk, these picturesque adventures are best captured with the Mermaid Tail mini film, with the pastel tones bringing an extra sparkle to nature.

Cooling down at a café

On days that are just too hot to battle the beach, there’s nothing quite like cooling down with an icy drink at your favourite cafe. From an iced mocha to a crisp lemonade to accompany a sweet treat, add a touch of elegance to your outing with the Blue Marble mini film.

Road trips

If your ideal summer day involves escaping the hustle and bustle of the city for the cool and calm of a seaside or country town, add road trip to your bucket list. And with balmy weather carrying on right through the evening, what better way to capture memories at night and contrast the bright light of the day than with the Star Illumination SQUARE film.

Bring a little extra brightness

Australia’s tropical summer season comes with its fair share of rainy days, but we mustn’t let the gloomy skies get us down! Available in both mini and SQUARE, the instax Rainbow Film promises to add colour and brightness to every summer memory.
