Focused Expeditions runs tours for people that are passionate about photography, to make sure they get the shot, the right light, the right composition, the right settings on their camera, and, have a beautiful travel experience at the same time. Tours are for all levels of photographers, whether it be people just starting out as amateurs and wanting to be able to learn, right through to the semi pro or the serious amateur.
We’re about being able to get people out to those little places that you just can get to, that are remote and most people don’t go; the beautiful wildlife, the bird life, the fauna, the flora; it’s all about getting out there and finding those little nooks and crannies, and experience what photography is really all about.”

From Goolwa we embark on our fully catered tour vessel for the journey past the mouth of Australia’s longest river, the mighty Murray, stopping at our leisure, to enjoy this most remote part of South Australia. Over the next 5 hours, you will experience the Coorong in all its glory, under the watchful eye of local photographer Leon Meade. We will disembark at a remote location on Younghusband Peninsula to be immersed in this richly indigenous land before returning later in the afternoon, providing an opportunity for rich golden light to flood the waterways of the Coorong, capturing migratory birdlife and local flora and fauna.
A peaceful stroll through native bushland, our National Park Photo Walk will invigorate and relax at the same time. The birdlife and peaceful surroundings of flora and fauna are abundant, as they go about their daily lives. Just 25 minutes from Adelaide, you will have the opportunity to capture images in the afternoon light as it glistens from ponds whilst the day quietly comes to a close. The 2-hour walk is perfect for photographers looking for instruction in a small group environment with intimate exploring of camera settings and construction of their images.
