Astro Photography Workshop

$295.00 inc GST

This is the ultimate nature photography workshop as the area on Lake Yarrunga, known locally as the sunken forest, is only accessible by water. As such we will be canoeing in our double rigs to the old convict road inside Morton National Park for this experience. Anyone that has seen the day pictures of our Canoes, Champagne & Canapés adventure can appreciate how special this intimate milky way workshop is, during the last phase of the quarter moon. Its one night only and we only have 20 places.

What to expect?
You arrive at Beehive Point at 5pm for a 5.30pm start. The first hour is talking with Ari Rex about your camera, settings and how we will shot the night sky as well as a mandatory water safety briefing. We will have a casual BBQ dinner set up before we leave and some travelling snacks for the trip. Alcohol is not included.
At approx 6.30pm  we head off in our canoes to the convict road and you get to see the sunken forest by twilight with all the wildlife activity of this incredible ecosystem. The sun sets at 7.15pm and as this location is the real hero of the event we want to be in place as darkness falls. We then set up on the river bank and begin capturing images. We expect to be paddling back to Beehive Point around 10pm based on the movement of the milky way across the night sky, then together we will all drive out in convoy back to the Nowra Road.

Great news is the dirt road to beehive point has been graded in July so its a might smoother drive.
