Photography Tours

Being aware that photographers have very different needs to  birdwatchers or general naturalists we run a number of designated photographic tours each year. Some of these we have scheduled in our programme and others are customised on request. They are led by our experienced  guides  specifically for photographers and, while they might visit  similar areas to a birding or wildlife tour the daily tour  plan will be very different.

We also run a number of tours each year which, while not designated as photographic tours, offer a lot of great chances for photography.

To help you make the most of your camera we also run special workshops for photographers of natural history based in the rainforests of Far North Queensland. Please enquire if you would like to join us on one of these.
