To begin with, this Nature Walk looks closely at the fantastic minor bugs and insects that inhabit the flowers and plants in your backyard. If you are mesmerized by the beauty of the macro world, then this tour is for you.
Let’s Go Buggin! is the perfect two-hour small-group photography walking nature tour. Not to mention that miniature lifeform enthusiasts can capture an array of tiny wonders through their cameras. You will also have help and guidance from well-known Cairns macro photographer Bridgette Gower. But also, you will get to take in the wonder of the Cairns Botanical Gardens!
Our kinds of things to see
From Frogs to caterpillars, beetles to butterflies. Let’s Go, Buggin! Tour will assist you in taking the ultimate photos of your favourite mini creatures.
On the one hand, do you hope you might find the elusive Green Jumping Spider? On the other hand, perhaps it is the tiny green and gold Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog?
Alternatively, maybe it is the wonderous tree fungi that inspire you! With Bridgette’s guidance, you can capture those stunning snaps on your Nature Walk.
First, after meeting your guide Bridgette at the Cairns Botanic Gardens, you will commence a walk through the Gardens where Bridgette will show you the hidden wonders. The walking route is adapted to the Seasons so may vary, meaning no 2 walks will be the same! If you let Bridgette know your interests, she will adapt the walks to find those little critters you have been searching for!
