The Tasmanian Wilderness Plan.

We are travelling in two comfortable air conditioned vehicles (with lots of room) and doing a circuit trip around Tasmania’s wild North West beginning in the historic town of Launceston before heading along the windswept North Coast.  We then delve deep into the wild Tarkine region of Tasmania, Australia’s largest region of unprotected temperate rainforest.  We spend 6 nights in the Tarkine, exploring the rugged coastline to the wilderness before heading inland and North to Cradle Mountain for three nights before turning home to Launceston again, 12 days later.
Deserted Coastline to fern filled temperate rainforest and waterfalls to mountain savannah and sub-alpine lakes… This is not a trekking tour, but we will be doing lots of day walks, with hot showers every night and lots of excellent food!

Should you go on this Photo tour to Tasmania?

This photo tour is for anyone with a keen interest in photography and a love of adventure.  It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned professional or a complete beginner, all levels of photographer are welcomed, in fact the diverse experience of the group is an integral part of what makes it so much fun.  Our group size is  small with a maximum of  just 8 participants,  so you are always assured of personal interaction and tuition, whatever your needs.  Most evenings after dinner we will get together to discuss the days events and talk about photography topics as diverse as camera functionality, low light photography and Depth of Field,  to downloading images, key-wording and post processing.  There is  nothing quite like travelling with a small group of like minded people to really speed up the learning process.

Physical Fitness

This tour will take us through the true Tasmanian wilderness, through remote and untamed terrain. It is not a trekking tour, and we will be sleeping in comfortable beds and having hot showers, however, a basic level of walking fitness is essential.  You will need the ability to negotiate uneven ground while carrying your own camera gear.  We have many scenic walks planned that are remote and spectacular, so a love of the World’s wild places is essential.  If you have any doubts or questions please feel free to give me a call to discuss them on 0415 854 179 or email

Full details for 2019 will be up soon.
