For our first stop we will venture to the new ‘African’ section, where giraffes, rhinos and zebras are on display.

Mark will be on hand throughout to talk to you one-on-one, and make sure you are utilising your camera to its potential.

After morning tea at a nearby café, We then head to the ‘Asian’ section of the zoo to photograph tigers, Asian elephants and red pandas on display.

We'll stop for lunch at the Crocoseum to sit back and relax the midday show.

Then its off to Australia Zoo’s famous crocodiles, followed by Tasmania devils, dingoes, koalas, cassowaries and much more. The cute otters will be sure to put on a show.

To finish off the day, we will take in the huge walk-through bird aviary, where there are many different birds to photograph.

Before each of the different sections we will be heading to, Mark will give you instructions on the best settings and photography techniques to use, in order to get the best wildlife photos.
