Lady Elliot Island on the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef is offering the ultimate escape for 
photography buffs – the Foto Frenzy Workshop hosted by the acclaimed Darren Jew from July 19-23.

Known as the Home of the Manta Ray, Lady Elliot Island is a photographer’s paradise featuring dreamy island landscapes and exceptionally clear water with very high visibility.

Priced from $829* per person twin/triple share, the package includes four nights in an Eco Cabin with the option to say a fifth night free; photography workshop; return scenic flight;  full buffet breakfast and dinner daily; glass bottom boat and snorkel tour; a range of island activities and tours plus environmental management charge.

A great selection of accommodation upgrades and exciting dive add-ons are also available.

Guided by one of the world’s best nature, underwater and tourism photographers, the workshop focuses on land and underwater photography and includes photo walks, processing and printing, photo exhibition, equipment demonstrations and a photo competition with a chance to win major prizes.

Acting general manager for Tourism Fraser Coast, Robbie Cornelius, said the multi-award winning Australian photographer Darren Jew had captured some of the planet’s most amazing landscapes and wildlife from Antarctica to Zambia over his 30 year career.

“We are very excited that Darren is coming to one of the Fraser Coast’s jewels in the crown, Lady Elliot Island, in this unique opportunity for photography lovers,’’ Mr Cornelius said.

At Lady Elliot Island on the Great Barrier Reef, visitors can step off the beach and snorkel, swim or dive in a unique underwater world of brilliantly coloured marine life, or just simply relax and soak in the natural island atmosphere.
