The Long Wild Journey Down-under
— Gianpiero Ferrari FBPE, DPAGB, FRPS

location: Sheldon Suite, Newark Showground
07 January 2019
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Mark Fernly will sadly not be able to bring us his talk on 'Wildlife Photography based in the lowland Peruvian Amazon Rainforest', in which he would have shared experimental techniques for filming and capturing images of Amazonian Wildlife that have featured in National Geographic, along with stories of his near death experiences living and working in the Amazon rainforest.

Instead Gianpiero Ferrari FBPE, DPAGB, FRPS, will be presenting his talk 'The Long Wild Journey Down-under'.

A Seven week and 7800 km long journey starting in South Western Australia photographing the endemic birds, beautiful weird flowers, and the stunning Southwestern Orchids of the Stirling Range Mountains. Then a long drive across the Nullabor, Desert, N.P., land of Kangaroo, Wombat, Snakes and the very rare Mallefowl, before stopping at the famous Heyre Birds Observatory, (to see is famous resident The Major Mitchell,s Kockatoo). Finally to South Australia, visiting several National Park, rich in wildlife, especially the colourful parrots and finishing the journey at the Great Ocean Road in Victoria.
