Adventure Series 2019

The Adventure Series is something new for 2019. It's an opportunity to share some more challenging walks into more rugged and remote locations.

There will be 4 events in the series which will build in intensity to the final walk up Mount Maroon.

We'll first head to Girraween for a weekend trip and tackle some peaks and caves. Then Mt Greville, Flinders Peak and Mount Maroon. There will also likely be a 5th event later in the year at Lamington.

Anyone is welcome but be aware that these are challenging walks and not suitable for everyone. Bookings will be essential.


A lot of people expressed an interest in some learning opportunities. I'm interested to know what topic you would like covered so please send me any thoughts or ideas.

Tips and tricks


Photographing Wildlife:

Patience is key - sometimes you get lucky and come across something amazing but mostly it's about waiting for something amazing to happen.

Spend time learning where to find the animals you are after, watch how they move and interact. Over time you'll become a better photographer because you'll understand your subject better.

Blend in - you don't necessarily need a camo outfit but sit still and quietly and you'll be soon see animals you didn't realise were there once they are comfortable with you being in their space.



“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
Elliott Erwitt
Looking forward to seeing you on a walk sometime soon.

About Scenic Rim Photowalks

Scenic Rim Photo Walks is a community of photography enthusiasts based in Queensland’s Scenic Rim who get together regularly for photo walks in and around our area.

The walks are not 'guided' walks and walkers are expected to be aware of their own abilities, assess and manage the risks they encounter. Relevant information will usually be made available prior to the walk but walkers should satisfy themselves regarding the degree of challenge and risk in any given walk.

All kinds of photographers are welcome and even non photographers. Most walks are suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
