Led by wildlife photographer Bret Charman, we explore the Australian states of Victoria and Tasmania for a wildlife photography experience that very few countries are able to equal.

The weird and wonderful species of Australia have evolved like nowhere else on Earth and, as a result, the level of endemism in the country is simply incredible. 83% of mammals and 93% of amphibians recorded here are only found in Australia. The short-beaked echidna is a prime example – imagine a hedgehog crossed with a kiwi or the other monotreme (egg-laying mammal), the duck-billed platypus. Then of course you have koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and wombats.

Despite this incredible array of fascinating species that make for captivating subjects, Australia is often not the choice for a photo safari. However, this country provides one of the most rewarding photographic experiences.

We will visit some of the finest wildlife locations in Victoria and Tasmania, and the itinerary has been designed to make sure that we make the most of the light, but also give ourselves ample time to photograph the numerous species that we encounter. Throughout the itinerary Bret will be on hand to provide guidance and photographic tuition, helping you get the most out of your images.

So, why not join Bret for a wildlife photography experience like nowhere else on Earth?
