Women-only Photography Escape

‘Birds on Bruny’

A bird photography Experience on Inala Nature Reserve on Bruny Island

A practical learning bird photography experience on the peaceful Inala Private Conservation Reserve, home to 95 species of birds, including many rare endangered species.

Attuned to the tranquility, spend time observing the natural behaviour of a diversity of birdlife and experience the thrill of capturing beautiful photos of the tiniest of birds to regal raptors. Discover a sense of peace and calm at the same time as being perceptively aware of your surroundings.  Some of the highlights of this experience are…

  • Discover a range of photographic approaches, settings and techniques for bird photography in different scenarios – including birds perched, in flight, interacting etc
  • A superb opportunity to photograph rare and endangered Forty-spotted Pardalotes from an elevated viewing platform
  • Specialist led birding activities maximising your opportunity to locate and identify an abundance of birds to photograph
Imagine the photos you could take!

“After 5 days with Coreena I see a marked improvement in the end result of my photos and a better understanding of composition. I had never spent the time getting up early for sunrises and waiting for the sunsets and what a difference the light makes. You will not regret participating in this women-only photography experience.”
