North Queensland Wildscapes Phototours

Cairns, Cairns Area

Join Paul Curtis of North Queensland Wildscapes Phototours in a tour some of the less visited but extremely photogenic sites around the tropical north. Tours are varied to suit the customer and the prevailing weather and conditions, but foremost is the goal of finding some remarkable sites and returning with wonderful pictures. Tours can be half day, full day, or one or more nights away, to capture the golden hours of dusk and dawn.

Paul can provide a window into the true north Queensland and assist you to get the most out of the opportunity. The experienced enthusiast/professional is catered for, as well as those new to outdoor photography. Paul can help you get the best out of your camera and the wonderful subjects presented. Maximum number is four adults so each trip is flexible to suit your needs. No rushing from place to place, or packing up unless you are satisfied.

Costs are all inclusive except where indicated. You can be collected from anywhere from Cairns to the northern beaches (up to Palm Cove). Departure times depend a bit on your location, but are generally around 8am. There is no schedule where certain places are visited on certain days.

Golden Beaches - Half Day, Full Day or Overnight

An hour south of Cairns is one of the best beaches in north Queensland for photography. For a half day tour, an afternoon low tide is preferable to fully appreciate the area. Otherwise a more leisurely full day will give everyone more time to explore further including nearby Eubenangee Swamp with its variety of birdlife and ominous creekside scenery. Depart between 12.30pm to 1pm for half day or 8am for full day. Bring a hat and light shoes (they may get wet) and sunscreen and insect repellent, if necessary, can be provided. Return whenever you feel like it! Light lunch provided on day tour.

Overnight tours are available for those who enjoy camping in a rainforest setting next to tropical beaches. Please enquire.
