Deluxe Women-only Photography Escapes

Empowering female-led experiences for female photo-enthusiasts of all ages

All-inclusive | Fully hosted
Meaningful and hassle-free retreats so you can genuinely escape from the busyness of everyday life.

Photography | Relaxation | Rejuvenation
A healthy blend of experiential activities. Boutique accommodation, gourmet meals, calm travel and mindful photography.

Semi-private | Locally guided
No more than five like-minded photo-enthusiast women, plus your local female photographer guide. 

Travel solo or bring a friend
Travel solo but not alone, or bring a friend along, yet enjoy an individual experience with your camera.

“Unhindered by the presence of our male counterparts, there’s an opportunity for a more profound connection – with other female photographers, with nature and wildlife, and of course with your camera. There are no expectations, no competitions. Rather, it will be a supportive environment allowing you to connect with nature, your surroundings and the activities that we engage in, through mindful photography.”
Host and guide – Coreena Vieth

Visualise encounters with an abundance of birds and wildlife (especially wombats). Picture yourself relaxing in tranquil surrounds, exploring the great outdoors and mindfully photographing nature’s beauty. Then imagine how relaxed and rejuvenated you’ll be, after breathing in pure fresh air and proudly admiring your photographic accomplishments.

From the moment you arrive to the moment you depart, with a plethora of amazing photos and feeling revitalised, we look after you!
