Australia’s best hidden photographic wonderland – Central Queensland…
Carnarvon gorge is found in Central Queensland, just over 700km west of Brisbane. It is one of Australia’s best locations for photography – yet few Aussies know of it’s photographic diversity. Subjects from rugged landscapes to unique wildlife are around every bend. Towering sandstone cliffs are dissected by deep gorges with rainforest plants. You can add to the list, outstanding creative shoot opportunities.
This is were Darran fine tuned his early skills, living just outside of the gorge in 1980. He worked at the lodge twice in the early 1980’s and has since visited many times over recent years. He knows many of the best locations to shoot stunning nature subjects like the shy platypus, Pretty-face Wallaby’s and much more.
