In a brand-new enterprise not offered in Cairns previously, Aussie Macro Photos is now running Guided Tours Let’s Go Buggin and Let’s Go Shroomin for those interested in seeing and or photographing some of the many of the lifeforms she has photographed in the Cairns Botanic Gardens.

Owner of Aussie Macro Photos, Bridgette’s 1000 plus hours spent in the gardens has allowed her to become aware of many host plants and locations for a variety of caterpillars, cocoons, moths and butterflies, leaf, tree and planthoppers, praying mantis, jumping spiders, tortoise beetles, damselflies and dragonflies, and a variety of frogs.  Her experience has also given her exceptional knowledge of where to find some amazing mushroom hot-spots with incredible colours and formations.
