Women-only Photography Escape

Rathmore is a quintessential Tasmanian country property.

Visualise encounters with wildlife and birds in their natural habitat, including platypus in the dam.

Then, imagine how relaxed and rejuvenated you'll be after breathing in refreshing country air, and proudly admiring your photographic accomplishments.
