We will make our way to some hidden local areas that are never photographed by other tours. We will head out to the Tuross Cascades to photograph waterfalls and rivers. In terms off wildlife we can usually expect to see a mob or two of Brumbies while we are here We will enjoy a packed lunch in Kiandra amongst the natural paradise.

Autumn is a time where you can get really low cloud and soft incredible light, there are so many locations in Kiandra that suit this weather. Luke will show the “local specials” that exist within Kiandra and explain the important historic relevance of the area to the Snowy Mountains.

We then head back to have dinner and to prepare for the next day.

Lunch will be at Thredbo just back down the road. The afternoon we will travel back up the road and hike to the Ramshead for sunset. The Ramshead has many amazing scenes along the way with large granite rock formations overlooking the main range and the Cascade Valley.
