Shutterbug Walkabouts' Maria Island Photo-oriented Nature Tour is a private tour for anyone who loves to explore the great outdoors and photograph nature's beauty. A chance to immerse in the diversity of natural beauty that Tasmania is renowned for. Hear from an experienced local guide as they share their extensive knowledge about Tasmania's intriguing history, stunning natural environment, adorable wildlife and charming birds. And, being a talented local nature and wildlife photographer with a passion to help others capture unique photos, not just snapshots, you'll be sure to capture some truly special moments too. First you'll travel from Hobart along Tasmania's east coast to Triabunna where we'll take a passenger ferry across the Mercury Channel to Maria Island. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic scenery on a day of fully guided walks and be amazed by the vibrant colours and patterns of the Painted Cliffs and the ancient fossils embedded in stone at Fossil Cliffs. Be intrigued by stories about Maria Island's differing eras in history whilst strolling around ruins of convict-built structures and the former convict settlement of Darlington. Be enchanted by an abundance of wildlife and birds (including wombats of course!) Indulge in guidance for capturing unique photos, not just snapshots.
