We have good reason to believe that this is the greatest photography tour available in the World! On this tour you have the ability to shoot Australia's most remote locations from the air as well as on the ground. To cover such distance with ease gives you so much variety in the photo opportunities and sets it apart from any other photo trip. One day you will be shooting waterfalls within immense gorges on the islolated Kimberley coast, the next you will be lining up crocodiles, jabiru and barramundi! This is the last word in photographic journeys.
