Weekend Photography Retreats

An immersive weekend of nature, landscape, wildlife and night-sky photography,
led by local Tasmanian nature photographers.

Private and all-inclusive

Designed for you to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Join us in Tasmania to hone your skills and creative vision for photography in Tasmania’s magnificent natural environment. Bring your camera and personal gear and we’ll do the rest, so you can indulge in a fully guided and hosted private photography experience.

You will focus on what interests you most, and be on location with a professional photographer providing whatever amount of instruction and guidance you would like, and however complex you would like it to be. No matter what level of photographer you are, you will achieve awe-inspiring photos. You’ll have a chance to receive valuable feedback in review and post-production tutorial sessions too.

The experience is private and will be personalised to you and your travel companions. If you are travelling with a non-photographer, your personal tour host is available to be their guide while you enjoy a range of photo shoots. If you are travelling solo, we will tailor a retreat especially to accommodate you.

Everything will be taken care of by your tour host, including your meals. You will dine at a time and place that suits a diversity of locations and photographic opportunities. There will be no worrying about restaurant opening and closing times either (which often conflict with the best light of the day) – you will dine on a bountiful range of Tasmanian fare prepared by your host.

Your tutor and tour host are local Tasmanian photographers Roy and Coreena Vieth, the owner-operators of Shutterbug Walkabouts. Join Roy and Coreena on a weekend of photographic inspiration and relaxation on a Shutterbug Walkabouts weekend photography retreat.

Imagine the photos you could take…
Wineglass Bay from Mt Amos, Freycinet National Park, Tasmania

National Park

Situated on Tasmania’s stunning east coast, the Freycinet Peninsula offers landscape photographers countless opportunities to capture truly impressive photographs. The area is most renowned for the iconic Wineglass Bay and ‘Hazards’ mountain range, but there is so much more to explore.

It’s an area where rugged landscapes, vibrant colours and dramatic light set the scene. Imagine secluded pebble-filled bays, pristine azure waters and long, white sandy beaches. Think golden sunrises and sunsets, starry night skies and an abundance of wildlife and birds…




An island off an island south of Hobart, is a microcosm, including some of the best preserved natural environments in Tasmania. 

The rugged coastline offers walks to stunning cliff top views and sheltered bays and an narrow isthmus with breathtaking 360-degree panorama views and an undisturbed night sky. Bruny is home to abundant wildlife including the rare white wallabies and all 12 endemic birds of Tasmania along with penguins, echidnas, pademelons, quolls, eagles and many more. Whales may be seen during their annual migration…
