Bay of Fires Nature Photography Retreat

Friday 27th to Sunday 29th September 2019

Indulge in a truly magnificent coastal photography weekend! Bay of Fires is an absolutely sensational location for a photography retreat. To top it off, we spend each night in relaxed and simple-yet-stylish accommodation nestled amidst the the good ol’ Aussie bush. The experience includes chef-prepared meals, including an on-location BBQ, and a 2-hour Bay of Fires eco cruise. As our logo suggests… Discover, Experience and Photograph!

The vibrant coastline of orange lichen covered boulders, pristine beaches and azure bays will lure us to spend at least a couple of hours on location for each guided photo shoot – twilight, sunrise, sunset, the night sky (or maybe an elusive aurora). The locations will depend on the conditions at the time – just imagine the photos you could take… we’ll help you capture the magic!

While photographic activities vary throughout the weekend, you are guaranteed of plenty of practical expert instruction comprising one-on-one guidance too. It’ll be a wonderful weekend dedicated to photography in an extraordinarily stunning location.

As for where you’ll relax overnight… you’ll be surrounded by a tranquil bush setting, at the beautifully appointed Bay of Fires Bush Retreat… you’ll be “glamping” (the buzz word for luxury camping) in a luxuriously furnished bell tent – one entirely to yourself or shared only with your partner or a person known to you. Booked exclusively for our group only, we have all the modern conveniences of life available, making our stay very very comfortable indeed. Each night you’ll have a chance to sit by a warming campfire, toast marshmallows and sip on a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of wine.

By the time you return home, you will have immersed yourself in a very interactive learning experience and captured a number of stunning images to show off to your friends and family and/or to showcase on the walls of your living room.

Overall a very worthwhile experience and highly recommended.”
