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. Outstanding creative shoot opportunities, plus Astro shoots.
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.
This event is limited to 8 adventurers…
We include 5 nights accommodation at Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness Lodge – world class photo tuition, breakfast lunch and dinner as per itinerary.
Land transport for this event is not included. However, we can offer to link you up with others in the group to share transport. We base transport on our tried and true system of vehicle pooling and self driving. You do not need to drive if you do not want to. The key reason for self drive, is to allow us to start early and finish late for the best light. This flexibility also offers you a better price and the chance to meet new friends. Julia is happy to help.
