Now this photography tour is EPIC! Not only will you have the chance to see some of the top instagram photography locations in Cairns and learn about your camera, you will also get to learn a great amount of history and ecology from your ecologist & photographer guide.
A great way to get outdoors and see animals you’ve never seen before AND learn how to photograph at the same time! These tours are run once a month.
Our tour truck can take up to 15 people and we visit several locations with a variety of photography:
The full-day photography tours begin at 6am to make the most of the morning light and run until late afternoon. Meeting at Centenary Lakes, we head out for some sunrise opportunities! We then head up the tablelands to photograph some of the most stunning local locations, with a chance of seeing wildlife on the way! We break for lunch (buy your own) at a superb location with photography opportunities, before heading back towards Cairns.
We return to Cairns mid-afternoon, dropping you back at your vehicles at Centenary Lakes between 4-5pm.

All itineraries are subject to change due to weather, road conditions, unexpected circumstances or driver’s decision based on what is best for the group. This itinerary is ONLY a guide. Whilst an itinerary is important, at Cockatours, we believe being flexible and having the ability to explore and deviate is also incredibly important.
Our photography tours are one of the best ways to learn about your camera while exploring some stunning locations in the region. We mix the day with theory and practice in an incredibly fun way, throw in some local history, culture and ecology information, and relax with some food and a swim!
Clients are shocked at how much they learn in a day. They always say they wished they’d done one sooner as they would’ve learned so much more and that while YouTube videos were helpful, they didn’t progress their knowledge much.
Note: This itinerary may change. If it does, it will be an improvement on the existing. We are constantly on the lookout for new places to take a break or photograph!
Our 18-seater tour truck, Zeus, takes us on all our adventures. He is equipped with very comfortable seating perfect for off-road driving, a sound system with microphones for those who love karaoke and plenty of storage. The air-conditioning works extremely well and the tinted windows in the cab help keep the glare & heat out!
