From daily funnies to awe-inspiring stunts, seasoned with a sprinkling of culture, this list of Insta-heroes has you covered.

Nature: Nat Geo (@natgeo) – Go for the pics of baby pandas, stay for the close-ups of ferocious lions. And snakes. And sharks. In bursts of beautiful colour, this is life in all its many weird and occasionally frightening forms.

Funnies: Betoota Advocate (@betootaadvocate) – Get fresh LOLs with your wake-up coffee thanks to Australia’s favourite fake news site, stuffed with headlines so outlandish they could easily be taken for convincingly real stories by today’s standards. Expect such beauties as, ‘Work friend promoted to real friend after weekend hangout’. Love it.

Fashion: Tyler Mitchell (@tylersphotos) – All the moody artistry and Beyonce-heavy delightfulness you’d expect from the first African-American photographer to shoot a cover for Vogue, with an emphasis on character-led portraits and black culture, all lavishly backlit and sumptuously styled (of course).

Travel: Daily Overview (@dailyoverview) – Perch atop a drone and cruise the far-flung corners of the world (and some closer to home) seeing it all from a rather different vantage point, thanks to this amazing account dedicated to capturing our planet from above. Mind-blowing colours and patterns await.

Design: CoverJunkie (@coverjunkie) – If you ever catch yourself wondering what everyone did when we were sitting on a bus/train/toilet before we had phones, reading magazines is the obvious answer. This account posts some of the best covers from mags past and present, highlighting the super-intricate, often daring designs carried upfront by a succession of print titles — and we love ‘em.

Model/Daredevil: Oleg Cricket (@olegcricket) – Instagram’s all about the pics right? Because unless you speak Russian, you might struggle to read the captions on this account. But it has us hooked for the guy’s twin pursuits of, one: looking good in various beautiful places around the globe and, two: performing stomach-churning stunts on the edges of an array of high buildings. Just don’t look down.

Art: The Row (@therow) – Be the culture vulture you always knew you were — all with a quick scroll of the thumb — by following The Row, a gorgeously curated account dedicated to art and design. Like a museum that crams all the best of the best in no matter what it is, here you’ll find paintings by great artists, fashion collections, furniture, interiors and so much more.
