More Information

Join Luke Tscharke and Jay Evans on an incredible opportunity to photograph the night sky amongst Australia’s most recognisable landmarks and superlative landscape of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. As one of very few tour operators allowed access to the park at night, you will be treated to some unparalleled access to two of Australias most recognisable landmarks. You will be treated to five days and four nights (three full days total) of dedicated astrophotography coaching and tuition, both in the field during capture and back at the accommodation including post-processing sessions. With ideal timing for dark night skies and the milky way rising in the early evening this workshop will help you take your astrophotography to the next level. With the absence of light pollution, the clear night skies in Australia’s red centre really do have to be seen to be believed.
