Join Richard Young and Dave Buckton on a 12-day photography tour showcasing some of the South Island’s most iconic landscapes including Milford Sound and the Moeraki Boulders, along with some of New Zealand’s exceptional coastal wildlife. Timing is planned to make the most of New Zealand’s most settled season and catch the last of the autumn colours, with the added bonus of golden colours in the man southern landscapes.
Starting in Queenstown, we will then drive south to the untouched wilderness of Fiordland and on to Milford and Doubtful Sounds. The most northerly part of Fiordland’s many sounds, Milford, is famed as one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. Doubtful Sound is far more remote and scenic than the well-known Milford Sound. It offers a true wilderness experience. We overnight on a boat here.
The tour then travels through the Catlins Coastal Rainforest Park, with opportunities to photograph the area’s waterfalls, rainforest, penguins and sea lions. North of the Catlins, we explore the Otago Peninsula, known as New Zealand’s wildlife capital. We photograph southern Royal Albatross and stay at Larnach Castle. Beyond, tour highlights include the Moeraki Boulders and then continuing on to Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park to photograph some of the amazing alpine scenery around New Zealand’s highest peak.
