Western Australia Perth Nature Landscape

Tourism Western Australia - Autumn 2013 (28 May 2013 to 06 June 2013, 6D5N)

I got news from Tourism Western Australia asking us if we want to make a trip down to WA and they will help plan with an agency for us. The estimated cost is around 2K - 2.5K for a one week trip (have yet to talk them on specifics) . The number of space we have is around 8pax and I will try to get the Estima/Tarago type of vehicle.

Since this is supported by Tourism Western Australia, the things we can get is definitely not the same as those you would get from our local tour agencies. Close but the experience is definitely better as to who is supporting us :)

For those who do not know what I have done for them in the past, you can read my blog posts below

http://wilzworkz.wordpress.com/2011/12/21/travel-thru-the-lens-western-australia-day-7-margaret-river-caves-lighthouses-wine-chocolates/

Update No. 3

For those who wants to meet us at Perth, it is still possible, please make arrangements for your own flight and make payment for just the land tour at $1700.

I will be doing the payment for the land tour before CNY and I have 2 more seats left before opening up another 4 more seats for another car. Anything over 8 I will require a set of 4 travellers to cover for the use of the car and accommodations.

 

Update No. 2:

Confirmation by 30th Jan 2013: $2300
Confirmation after 30th Jan 2013: $2500

The price difference is due to the promotion air fare from SIA.

Do note it is without food and petrol (will be shared). At the moment the package includes:

- 2 way air tickets (originally by SIA but we try to get it cheaper using other airlines) . If not we remain at 2500 but it is full flight service by SIA.
- 5 Nights accommodation via hotel/apartment
- 7D car rental by Hertz (I am fighting to change to a big van that can carry eight and lower rental too) . If we have more than 8, then we may have 2 vehicles instead.
- Fees for attractions (see below)
- All applicable airport taxes
- Australian Visa Fee

Here are the following attractions where fees (if it is needed)will be covered:
Albany – Torndirrup National Park (includes The Gap, Natural Bridge), Wind Farm, *Whale World Entrance Fee, Bremer Bay
Denmark – Valley of the Giants Tree top Walks
* Pemberton – Black Point Full Day Eco Adventure with lunch & morning (this is at least a couple of hundred dollars per pax) Tea (conducted by Pemberton Discovery Tours), Beedelup National Park (Karri Forest & Beedelup Falls)
* Augusta - Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse guided tour
Margaret River – Gnarabup Beach, Ngilgi Cave, Boranup Karri Forest, Canal Rocks in Yallingup, Injidup Beach in Yallingup, Prevelley
* Busselton – Busselton Jetty includes The Jetty, Train ride & Underwater Observatory (this is beautiful place and is AUD25 per pax)

Accommodation:

Albany - Banksia Garden Resort Motel 2 bedroom
Pemberton - Karri Valley Resort 2 bedroom chalet
Margaret River - Margaret beach resort
Busselton - Abbey Beach Resort 2bedroom apt
Perth - Criterion Hotel Perth

As you can see, there are somethings that a normal tour won't do. And there are certain things only Photographers will do (like waking up super early to shoot sun rise and sun sets). To go places that no one else will go. So take this opportunity to shoot the other side of Perth and WA.

Those who wants basic manual training for their DSLR, I will give lessons prior to the trip.

IF you are Interested, PLEASE, email me at [masked] with your contact details and a scanned copy of your passport.

Details needed:
Name as in Passport:
I/C Number:
Passport Number:
Contact Number (Mobile/residence):
Take a photo or scan your Passport and attached it in email.

This is how it is going to work.
- I will give priority to those in the list.
- Those on the list who did not forward me their information by the first cut off  date will then be replaced by those who did reply to me. (hence those on waiting list or on RSVP list, you will be served too if we have a minimum of 8 to go, so do send in your information)
- If I still have space, I will then open it up to other members of SPIN and SDP.

Only for this trip, I am willing to conduct BMT (http://wilzworkz.wordpress.com/wilzworkz-training/basic-manual-training-getting-to-know-sam-modes/) for free for those who has confirmed going. 

Hence I am using this trip as a way to train those who are not familiar with the cameras and want to know more in terms of landscape and travel photography.

Any questions welcomed.

The Photography Tour is supported by Western Australia Tourism Office and EuroAsia Holidays.

    First training session will be on this Tuesday at 18C restaurant over at Orchard Cineleisure at 7pm. We will have a simple dinner and will go through some camera settings etc.

    If Tuesday is not good, then Wednesday we will have it at the Hosted@the Patio restaurant (http://goo.gl/maps/u8G6F) 7.30pm.

    2nd Session will involve the trip briefing and tips on travel photography. The 2nd session is important in that sense as we will go through what is on the itinerary and my strategy and methods to ensure I get to shoot properly (can't teach, can only show in practical hence the value of doing overseas outings).

    There is an option not to have another car, that is to have a bigger van such as the Estima where we can sit 6 with medium sized luggage. Hence, i can include car 1 to have maximum 6 people.

    Update: Things needed to be done.

    Note:
    - If confirmation with below information given BY THE 30th Jan 2013, the total cost of the whole trip is $2300 (this is due to promotional airfare by Singapore Airlines)
    - If information is given after the 30th Jan 2013, the total cost of the whole trip is $2500 (no promotional airfare).

    a) Passport details
    b) Prepare money of 1000 as deposit payable by 31st Jan for the early bird promotion fare. This is important as air tickets will be issued out 3 days after the 30th due to new airline policy.
    c) Buy travel insurance in case you cannot make it for the trip.
