Spend a day or more exploring the sights of Tasmania’s south.
Indulge in private transport and travel with an experienced local guide and photographer Coreena Vieth to see the sights at a relaxed pace. You’ll have plenty of time for taking photos and, if you wish, you may take advantage of some photography instruction along the way.
But it’s not all about photography; the overall experience is enhanced with conversational stories and interpretations about Tasmania. Coreena (a descendant of one of Tasmania’s first convicts and an early settler family) will share her knowledge about Tasmania’s history and heritage, natural environment, its bird and wildlife inhabitants and much more. You’ll enjoy a delicious morning tea, and on most tours, a picnic lunch too.
Shutterbug Walkabouts’ photo-oriented day tours are ideal for general interest/leisure photographers as well as beginner-intermediate photographers aiming to further develop their photography skills and techniques.
With activities appropriately adapted, these tours are also well-suited to photographers travelling with a non-photographer partner and/or friends.
Itinerary options include Mt Field National Park, incl. Russell Falls, Bruny Island, Tahune Airwalk & Hartz Mountains, Port Arthur & Tasman Peninsula, Maria Island and Mountain & Wildlife (Mt Wellington & Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary).
