Tassie Through the Lens

Visitors to Tasmania can combine touring with their love of photography with Shutterbug Walkabouts, a new photography-inspired small group tour company. Combining sightseeing with photographic tuition, Shutterbug Walkabouts offers a unique perspective on Tasmania.

Travellers will have the opportunity to capture their own images of spectacular vistas and inquisitive wildlife on private and small group tours that range from half-day trips to two weeks or longer journeys. Capture wildlife and birding, waterfalls, rivers and seascapes, flowers and forests, and historic heritage buildings under the expert guidance of leading photographers. Along the way, you’ll see places like Mount Wellington, Mount Field National Park – Tasmania’s oldest, which features the Russell Falls and the Tall Tree Walk; the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary; wild beaches and forests; the World Hreitage Western Wilderness; the South West National Park; and Gondwanaland, the last remaining part of the Pangaea supercontinent.

Choose from a wide array of touring options, including half- or full-day nature photography options; multi-day tours; and even self-drive journeys. On longer trips, guests can enjoy hospitality at World Heritage-listed convict-build B&Bs set in magnificent gardens, or even simple log cabins immersed in nature.

Half-day tours start from AU$250 (US$193) per person, while full-day tours start from AU$545 (US$420). Multi-day tours are priced on request, and are based on preferred levels of accommodation.
