Be ready for before sunrise departures to capture the sun’s rays as they splash onto the surrounding ranges or along a billabong.

We usually nd ourselves back at Digger’s Rest for lunch (most days) and downloading and tweaking the mornings captures.

After lunch, depart in time to get ready for a Kimberley sunset and then return to the  station for tea and camp-re drinks.

Depending on the group’s desire a “night under canvas” at one of the water holes is available too with Bush cooking at its nest!

What locations do we go to?

With On The Verandah’s Andrew Kerkeros & Rachel Dillons’ more than  30 years of experience in the Kimberley, in the country they love and appreciate, and your photography leader there is a long list of interesting landscape and wildlife locations in the area that Digger’s rest station covers.

A day trip is generally taken to the Historic port town of Wyndham where some amazing characters live and the spectacular 5 Rivers Lookout is a sunset must.
