Great Ocean Road Photo Tour

“Your chance to capture the last ones before they fall!”

There’s no denying that manmade masterpieces such as the Great Pyramids and the Great Wall Of China are among the World’s most astonishing treasures. Nonetheless there’s simply no surpassing the pure magic of a natural wonder like the Great Ocean Road for example. Exploring the World is not a matter of chance but of choice; and because the natural landscapes that surround us are changing at a fast pace, you may never have a chance to witness some of these natural wonders.

Today, you have the opportunity to be a spectator of twenty million years of wonder that traverses over 200km of tremendous coastline with breathtaking azure ocean views and ancient lush and verdant rainforests.

Start the journey and meet us in the vibrant Melbourne, jump in the car, buckle up, hold your breath and be ready for one of the most scenic drives in the World, the spectacular coastline Great Ocean Road along the jewel-like water of the wild and windswept Southern Ocean.  As we keep running on the historic winding road, the treasure gets closer and closer and the views seem to get more jaw-dropping with its dramatic, rugged cliffs carved from the sea until we reach the magnificent limestone stacks known as the 12 Apostles. Despite its name, this natural wonder count only 8 Apostles left…. time is of the essence. The constant wind and water keep carving out caves in the soft rock and erode the rugged limestone cliffs and the continually fierce ocean storms keep rolling in, causing even more erosion and eventually provoking the limestone to collapse.

What say you? Are you ready to be overwhelmed with such a splendid landscape? Don’t wait, see it, capture it and immortalise it before it’s too late. Book today.

Pack up for the Great Ocean Road Coastal Photo Adventure and embark on one of the most iconic road trips along with your camera. The overwhelming immensity of the landscape will fill you with awe and wonder, making you feel very small in comparison. The journey will blow your mind from panoramic views of endless rich azure water and golden limestone cliffs that rise up majestically from the Southern Ocean (Teddy’s Lookout, 12 Apostles, Gibson Steps, London Bridge, Loch Ard Gorge, Archway, Razorback, Dumpling Pots, etc), to bush walk through ancient out of this world woodland home to some of the tallest trees in the World (Otway National Park, Maits Rest). Not to mention walking along the beach, surrounded by towering limestone cliffs and chasing some stunning waterfalls, perfectly nestled within jewel-green paradise (Hopetoun Falls, Triplet Falls, etc).

The full itinerary will be sent to you once the booking is confirmed. However, you can already count these highlights spots on the list of places we’ll take you to (subject to weather conditions).

The essence of our Photo Tours is to ensure all attendees have a wonderful time and are able to produce great images. Therefore, we tend to limit the workshops to 6 attendees for an optimum instructor-to-attendee ratio and an intimate experience for everyone. That being said, there’s no minimum number of attendees and our photography workshops will still run regardless of the size.

Jump on a flight and meet us in Melbourne, you will be in good hands. Our Workshops are specially designed for a full experience of the Great Ocean Road’s best sights so you can truly escape the daily stresses of the 9 to 5.

in the most comfortable hotels the Great Ocean Road has to offer along the way.

for the entire Great Ocean Road Coastal Photo Escape. From day one, all your main meals are included. We’ve sourced some of best local eateries and restaurants serving some of the freshest foods in the country. Once you’ve tasted the local produce nothing will ever compare.
We’re not going to sit you down and tell you what you have to do, that’s just not how we roll. ‘Training’ is a rather strong word, we’d rather offer you hints and tips and the odd ‘secret formula’ to landscape photography and then let your creativity run wild. While the photography tour isn’t hardcore training, we can guarantee you’ll learn something new.
Sit back, relax and just enjoy the scenery. We chauffeur you around the country leaving you completely hands free to capture as many shots as your heart desires… or simply get some shut eye.
