Join Richard Young along with Rob Brown, Ken Wright and Shaun Barnett, on a 17-day photography tour showcasing some of the South Island’s most iconic landscapes including Milford Sound and the Moeraki Boulders, along with some of the country's exceptional coastal wildlife. Timing is planned to make the most of New Zealand’s most settled season in autumn. We will catch the best of the autumn colours in Central Otago as we travel through the classic southern man landscapes covered in golden colours.
Starting in Central Otago, the tour is timed for the month of April when the autumn colours are at their best. With landscape photographers Rob Brown and Richard Young as your guides and utilising comfortable 4WD vehicles, we will be able to take you into some of the most interesting and photogenic places of Central Otago.
Upon returning to Queenstown, we will drive east to the Catlins Coastal Rainforest Park, with opportunities to photograph the area’s waterfalls, rainforest, penguins and sea lions. North of the Catlins we will explore the Otago Peninsula, known as New Zealand’s wildlife capital. We will 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.
After this, we will head back to Queenstown before driving south to the untouched wilderness of Fiordland and on to Milford and Doubtful Sounds. The most northerly 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 there before returning home.
