Tarkine Photography Workshop Tasmania
5 days / 4 nights
May 3 ~ 7, 2022
Spend 4 nights at the remote hamlet of Corinna exploring this rugged and remote north west region of Tasmania. The autumn dates mean we will put a special emphasis on the fascinating fungi in this ancient rainforest landscape, as well as shooting some stunning rainforest and waterfalls, and remote sunsets over the lonely buttongrass moors.
Highlights will include:
* Two cruises on the Pieman River including the Arcadia II cruise to Pieman Heads
* Waterfalls such as Philosopher and Lovers Falls; and Nelson Falls en route from Hobart
* Sunset sessions over the buttongrass plains near Mt Donaldson
* Night sky session should conditions allow
* Post processing session
Day 1: Depart Hobart Highlights: Traverse the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, stopping at Lake St Clair, Franklin River and Nelson Falls en route to Corinna.
Day 2: Tarkine Rainforest Highlights: All day on multiple tracks around Corinna, shooting the fabulous autumn fungi and admiring beautiful green forest and waterfalls. Sunset over Mt Donaldson.
Day 3: Pieman River Cruise to Tasmania’s west coast Highlights: Half day cruise aboard the “Arcadia II” to the Pieman Heads on Tasmania’s west coast where we explore the windswept beaches.
Day 4: Lovers Falls & Donaldson River cruise Highlights: Cruise on a smaller vessel that allows us to explore locations the Arcadia can’t access. Second chance sunset shoot overlooking Mt Donaldson.
Day 5: Half day shoot at Philosopher Falls Highlights: Fungi and amazing myrtle rainforest along the track to Philosopher Falls. Return to Hobart around 19:00.
* If weather permits we will add a Night Sky Session. Post processing schedule is also included and will be scheduled at a suitable time.

- Comfortable hiking shoes (not sneakers).
- Water bottle/snacks for our sessions in the field.
- A full list of suggested items will be forwarded to you during the booking process.
Sunset is approx 17:10 in May.
We will only undertake short hikes, although care will need to be taken as most tracks in the Tarkine are not maintained to the same standard as other tracks you may have walked in National Parks. The Philosopher Falls track is very good, but likely to be wet and perhaps muddy in places. The walk is a gradual descent but there is a very steep set of stairs at the end.
Corinna is very remote and there is no mobile phone/internet reception, nor phones in the cabins.
The cruises are run by Corinna’s own professional and experienced staff. Please follow all safety advice issued by cruise staff.
** Please take all care and responsibility for your own equipment while outdoors **
The Tarkine is an area of rainforest in north west Tasmania which means rain is very likely. Please check the Zeehan weather forecast before the tour departs for an idea on what to expect. A raincoat and rain pants should be considered essential, as well as lots of warm clothing including thermal layers and possibly a down jacket for extra warmth and comfort. An umbrella can be a useful piece of equipment too, especially if you enjoy macro photography.
