Kakadu and Nitmiluk Photographic Special

December 27 2017 - January 6 2018

Getting the shot, photo by Leesa Hickey
Tripods are especially good for close ups

Whatever camera you choose, you will get better photos if you are willing to put in a bit of effort to get the best possible angle.

Section 1: Kakadu: December 27 – January 3

On section one you will have an opportunity to fly over part of Kakadu and take photos of things that can only be seen from the air. You will also get off the beaten track in the southern part of the park where you may camp near the little-known lower Motorcar Falls.

The two photos below show a helicopter view of Magela Falls and lower Motorcar Falls.

Section 2: Nitmiluk: January 2-6

Katherine Gorge is truly one of the natural wonders of the Northern Territory. Few see it at its spectacular best in the wet season. Fewer still get to camp near the many waterfalls and get the best possible light for their photos. The two photos below were taken on day walks. You should be able to do better.

Terrain and difficulty. Although the terrain is not particularly difficult, most of the walking is off-track. People who have never done any off-track walking are likely to find it more difficult than those who have had such experience.

Average daytime maximum temperatures are in the mid 30's. Average nighttime minimum temperatures are in the low to mid 20's. Combine this with relatively high humidity and the trip becomes substantially more difficult than it would be at a cooler time of year.

As this is a photographic trip, we will be spending more time taking photos and less time walking than on most of our trips. This will make it less physically demanding than our other trips at this time of year.

This trip takes place during Gudjewgg or the Wet Season. For more information, please have a look at our Gudjewgg — Wet Season page.
