Premium Tasmanian experiences for outdoorsy photo-enthusiasts

Tasmania's premier local operator of nature-based photography tours & tuition


Shutterbug Walkabouts offers a variety of ways for you to pursue your passion for photography in Tasmania.

Experiences offered include interpretive photo-oriented tours, private photography tuition and women-only photography retreats. Or if you prefer, a bespoke experience created especially for you.

All of our experiences are ideal for outdoorsy photo-enthusiasts of all levels. Simply choose an experience best suited to your interests and intentions, with our assistance as you may need.

Tasmania boasts an abundance of incredible places to discover, experience and photograph. Be prepared to explore a truly breathtaking natural environment because it packs a lot in for an island. There’s vibrant and rugged coastal landscapes, dramatic mountain ranges, cascading rivers, showy waterfalls and pristine beaches. And you are sure to be surprised and delighted by close encounters with an abundance of wildlife and birds.

Engaging in photography encourages you to slow down, refocus and admire the beauty of nature and your surroundings. Photograph is an activity that enriches the level of enjoyment through engaging in the process of taking photos, spending time looking up, down and around. And then viewing the images you capture is so rewarding!

For non-photographers, our photo-oriented tours are easily adapted into nature-based interpretive experiences that are particularly enjoyed by nature, birding and wildlife enthusiasts.

It was an excellent, well-organised day, and the photos I have prove that the day was well worth it.

Your passion for photography, professionalism and willingness to impart what you have learned through your own 'life experiences' is evident; and the calm, relaxed manner in which you conduct yourselves is appreciated.

Had a great time with Roy on my day out with him. He's an extremely patient teacher and has much to share.
