About the event:

Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in an untouched, tropic reserve where crocs rule?
Surrounded by over 170 bird species, 47 reptile species, 20 mammals and over 48 fish varieties?
With nothing more than the simple things in life and a camera with a telephoto lens?

Well this is the trip for you!

This is only the 3rd time the Canon Collective community has been granted access to the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve lead by Canon Collective Ambassador, Greg Sullavan, along with special guest hosts and tour guides from Australia Zoo. We will spend a week (7 days) on the property starting early each morning, leaving camp by land cruiser to adventure into the park, where you will be escorted every step of the way by experienced rangers with the intention to observe, learn and document selected wildlife in this once a year adventure.

Returning to camp for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, Colin and our Zoo staff will ensure we are in the right place at the right times to see as much as possible and give us enough time to rest, download, recharge batteries and plan for the next outing.

Greg will have a range of Pro Canon L series super-telephoto lenses on hand to share. Bring your tripod, filters, remote switch, SD cards and Laptops with the latest version of Lightroom and we will have a real photographic adventure out in the bush!
