Let’s Go Buggin – Nature and Photography Walk in the Cairns Botanic Gardens
For the love of bugs and all beautiful miniature creatures comes a tour like no other!
Let’s Go Buggin gives the nature enthusiast a tour with a difference.
From the brains behind many much-loved images on Aussie Macro Photos, Cairns photographer Bridgette Gower has created the first of its kind tour in Cairns the offers something for everyone from curious kids to professional photographers.
“I’ve spent endless hours, walking the paths, peering into bushes, leaning on tree trunks, crouching on boardwalks, kneeling on logs, lying on grass beds, discovering the host plants, seasonal changes and favourite habitats of many of our local miniature beauties.” Says tour creator Bridgette Gower.
“From frogs to caterpillars, beetles to butterflies, this tour is a welcome addition for visitors to Cairns as well as something new for locals to experience.”
The tour takes place in tropical paradise – Cairns Botanic Gardens, Bridgette will share with you several bug-hubs she has discovered that hides the most elusive beauties!
The tour will introduce to the punk superstar, Green Jumping Spider… the tiny gold and green Eastern Dwarf Tree Frogs… and the bright yellow caterpillar of the Four o’clock Moth. These are just 3 of the most commonly seen in the renowned tropical gardens but are mostly unseen by the general public.
A new species of Lacebug has recently been discovered on the tour and is now being studied at the University of NSW for scientific classification. Bridgette has given the amazing bug a common name ‘The Midgey Bridgey’.
So, if you are a professional photographer who would love to just ‘go-to’ that spot where to find such a creature, rather than spend hours trekking through the rainforest just being lucky to spot that 5mm spec in the vastness of the wild!
The tours are also perfect to capture your imagination and spark your curiosity when you see the beauty and weirdness that nature offers when you slow down and tune your focus to the incredible world that carries on in front of you.
Tours run daily at 8.30am (bookings essential). Professional photography equipment is not required (however we do offer a hire service), and tour participants can capture amazing shots using a smartphone.
