Three days in Purnululu World Heritage area photographing the amazing Kimberley landscapes and the Bungle Bungle Range. On the first day we arrive in time to photograph the rich red escarpment of the Bungle Bungle Range as it lights up at sunset.
For the next two days we explore Piccaninny Creek and the stunning Cathedral Gorge. Whatever you wish to photograph we can cater for. Sunrise, sunset, blue hour and Astro photography sessions are all available. We have the bonus of great bird photography back at our safari camp.
On day three we explore the northern section of the massif and Echidna Chasm. This gorge is a spectacular long, narrow chasm. It has striking colour variations, depending on the angle of the sun beaming into the chasm, with Livistonia palms waving from the 200 m high ridges above.
In the afternoon light we leave the Bungle Bungles and make our way north to the Ord River where we will spend the night in a private lodge. Along the way we will capture some sunset Boab Tree shots.
The following day we visit the bird hide at Marglu Billabong in Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve, a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention. Here we can spot and photograph numerous species of water birds and bush birds including Jabiru and Brolga.
We include a visit to Wyndham the oldest town in northern WA and/or organise an optional helicopter flight over the amazing Cambridge Gulf tidal flats. It is one of the best places in Australia to get this type of images.
In the afternoon light it’s time to go out on the Ord River in purpose-built dinghies photographing the tropical river-life. We capture abundant birdlife in its native habitat and it’s one of the few places in Australia where you can photograph freshwater and saltwater crocodiles’ side by side.
This morning we depart the Ord River bound for Lake Argyle. And the best way to experience the full length of Lake Argyle is on the Best of Lake Argyle cruise. From the rugged northern end to the vast expanses of the southern reaches and 120km in between, this is going to be a great day out. The southern wetlands are home to a myriad of birdlife that sometimes number into the tens of thousands! We will get a close-up look at the many different species of birds and other wildlife including wallabies and crocodiles. Then on our cruise home we will enjoy the changing colours reflecting across the lake near Monsmont Island, the best spot on the Lake for sunset!
