Tropical North Queensland Photo Tour

“Pack up your camera and go where you’d rather be!”

How about an escape to the Tropical North Queensland “Where rainforests meet the Reef”? Why? Simply because when we’re lost in our daily routine, going through the motions of our everyday lives, we tend to forget what colour is in its truest form. We see green, aqua, tawny, and slate as they appear on furniture, clothing, or wall decorations and think we understand them. Then one weekend we manage to get back to nature once again and we instantly realize we had no idea. Time spent in some of the world’s most beautiful places, such as the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest and the endangered Great Barrier Reef, will give you back the true taste of how life should be seen.

Close your eyes and imagine a visit to your own personal paradise. What do you see? An indescribable beauty of the colour palettes, marvellous greenery, waving palms, white beaches, azure jewel-water and an endless horizon dotted with islands. What do you feel, hear and smell? Perhaps soft, balmy breezes ruffle your hair as the crisp scent of tangy ocean salt fills your lungs, or the duet between the waves and the wind. Or maybe the mossy scent of the surrounding foliage fills your nostrils as a gentle breeze kisses your face with a fine mist.

If what you have in mind resembles a postal card of a holiday in paradise, you just found where you will be in March 2018, in the Tropical North Queensland for an unforgettable Photo Tour.

Don’t just picture it or imagine it, seize the opportunity to capture this extraordinary landscape and bring home memorable souvenirs and the perfect shot, proof that you were lucky enough to witness another of Mother Nature’s masterpieces. Book today.

Are you ready for a total immersion in paradise? The Tropical North Queensland Photo Tour will take you to one of the most stunning tropical scenery in the World. Travel back in time and have a glimpse of an ancient environment as we’re driving you to the splendid World Heritage-Listed Tropical Rainforest, older than the famous Amazon, the Daintree Rainforest (Mossman Gorge, Kuranda, etc). Reconnect with Mother Nature and appreciate the untouched and wild décor as we’re walking along Cape Tribulation Beach. Hold your breath as we’re completing the Waterfalls circuit in the Atherton Tablelands (Millaa Millaa Falls, Nandroya Falls, etc). Relax, sit back, tip your toes (or more) in the crystalline water as we’re spending the afternoon on one of the most paradisiac tropical venues (Palm Cove, Port Douglas, Great Barrier Reef Islands, etc). All along the tour, you will find yourself surrounded by serene waterfalls, towering trees, abundant lush and wild greenery flourishing only steps from white sandy beaches. All in all, Tropical North Queensland is simply the photographer’s dream destination.

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.

Whats Included?

Jump on a flight or charter a yacht and join us in Cairns, you will be in good hands. Our Workshops are specially designed for a full experience of Tropical North Queensland and the best sights so you can truly escape the daily stresses of the 9 to 5. We cover deluxe accommodation, fine dining, photography training, comfortable chauffeuring and entry passes.

Pamper yourself with 3 Wonderful Nights in some of the most idyllic resorts Tropical North Queensland has to offer. The resorts alone will take your breath away.
Enjoy Fine Wine & Dining for the entire Whitsunday Tropical 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 state. Once you’ve tasted the fresh local seafood, it will be hard to go back to ordinary life.
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. We know the roads and are experienced in all weather conditions. Safety is our number one priority, you’re in good hands.
All National Park Passes and entries to events are included.
