Carnarvon Gorge section, Carnarvon National Park is a spectacular gorge system with towering white and pink sandstone cliffs, pockets of lush rainforest where ancient species of flora thrive and home to an array of wildlife including more than 170 species of birds.

During the retreat we will hold tutorials, do field trips exploring creeks, visiting mossy gorges, spotting whip-tail wallabies and fairy-wrens, and hopefully watch platypus in the creek in the early morning.

Critiques of work will be conducted while on group outings, privately and in group sessions. We are enquiring re hiring a helicopter for some aerial photography. If this interests you please let us know. This would be an additional cost to the tour.

This retreat is limited to 20 participants with two Bluedog Tutors.

What happen’s If?
I don’t have a tripod?
We do recommend you have a tripod for this retreat and are happy to advise you on which way to go.

It rains?
It may, we can’t predict the weather and unfortunately we can’t tell Mother Nature what to do and we will have to work with her. While storms are generally rare during this time they do give us a chance to capture dramatic skies against the sandstone cliffs.

I forget something?
We’ll be sending out reminders and the full list again to those that register hoping you don’t forget anything and unfortunately there are no photography shops at the Gorge.

I can’t come to this one – will there be another?
Yes if we get enough interest we’ll run another!
