LOGISTICS

We leave early on Saturday morning with our rendez-vous point at a car park in the mountains. You will need to make your own way here in your own transport, although car-pooling will be encouraged.

We’ll hike for approximately 5km via a waterfall and wild-swimming hole to our secret campsite to set-up and then into position for an epic sunset shoot. After a campfire feast we’ll then enter astro-photography mode to hopefully capture the milky way in all her glory.

On Sunday we’ll wake before the lyrebirds to capture sunrise, a bacon sanger or two before continuing the hiking loop back to our cars.
