Cairns Tour – Let’s Go Buggin – Photography and Nature Tour

Let's Go Buggin Tour Aussie Macro Photos

Experience the wonder of the miniature world on a Cairns Photography & Nature Tour!

Join renowned macro photographer Bridgette Gower on a small group photography and nature tour to explore the beautiful creatures of the wet tropics in the Cairns Botanic Gardens and adjacent rainforest.  Bridgette has expertise on the many miniature lifeforms that grow in the rich and integral ecosystem. Most of these animals go completely unnoticed…However, a magical world awaits when you join Bridgette for a personalised, highly specified tour of the gardens and the treasures waiting to be discovered.

The Tour will introduce you to Australia’s largest butterfly and caterpillar The Cairns Birdwing, as well as many other colourful caterpillars, a huge variety of weird and wonderful bugs and beetles, curious (but harmless) jumping spiders, fungi and a host of many other tiny creatures that are hidden in the undergrowth.  Check out all the amazing critters you could encounter on Bridgette’s Buggin-dedicated Instagram here:

Camera Hire is available for Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced.  With Bridgette’s custom settings and assistance, you are able to capture images like below.   Be sure to follow the link in your confirmation email to reserve your camera hire.

If you are bringing your own camera, Bridgette can help you with your camera settings and composition ideas, techniques, and suggestions for capturing amazing images of the critters that we encounter.


We commence our walk of discovery immediately after our briefing at the meeting point.  Depending on the season we will adapt the walking route to see what is around at that time of year.  There are a number of host plants that are habitats for our most regularly seen critters.  I will also try and incorporate any individual interests.
