Weekend Away

A weekend away is a great time to get to know your fellow members and have a little more time exploring your camera and our country. For this event we're heading to Princetown near Port Campbell, in the Port Campbell National Park, home of the 12 Apostles and many other scenic areas.

While many members will be travelling to the accommodation on Friday our official activities commence at 1pm at Loch Ard Gorge. Remember to pack warm clothing as we'll be well into winter and in cliff areas that tend to be windy at times.

We'll be having dinner at the accommodation on Saturday night and there may be opportunity to dine there Friday night for those arriving earlier in the day.

Plan* is:

Friday night

  • Dinner at the accommodation around 7pm at the main accommodation
  • Astrophotography

Saturday

  • For those who stayed Friday, a scouting mission for sunrise shots for Sunday
  • Meet at the Loch Ard Gorge car park at 1pm
    If you arrive later, you'll no doubt see us around the Gorge.
    We'll be doing some slow shutter photography and general landscape photography down in the gorge and around the cliff-top walks.
  • We'll head off to the Bay of Islands around 3pm
  • Sunset location to be determined
  • Group dinner at 7pm at the main accommodation
  • Astrophotography at the accommodation and surrounds

Sunday

  • Sunrise - most likely at the 12 Apostles from 6am to catch first light
  • Breakfast at the accommodation 8:30am
  • Pack up and check out
  • Head to another location - to be determined by scouts on Friday

* Subject to change. Wet weather will most likely see us having portrait sessions around the accommodation
