When you arrive
Any camera will do. Expensive camera or camera on your phone, think big and think small. Breeze, angle and light are most important tips. Take multiple shots from different angles and use the Macro setting. It is certainly worth spending some time looking for the ‘perfect’ flower. Look closely at the flowers, especially those in your foreground, to ensure the plants are in good condition and facing your camera. Low light is best for close ups especially with shiny flowers. Orchids are photographed best in the morning or afternoon light on a sunny day. Bright light will wash out white and pale coloured flowers, unless shooting into the blue sky to pick up its contrasting colour.
Take nothing but photos. Picking wildflowers is illegal and can attract a $2000 fine.
Stick to the paths where possible. If venturing off-track then be wary of your feet when searching, you might be treading on a precious wildflower.
Protect the biodiversity. Help prevent the spread of disease by respecting private property. Please do not enter private farmland, no matter how pretty!
Sleep amongst flowers. There are several camp sites available at a small nightly fee, but find one early (especially on the weekend) and pay with the Ranger. For more information and to book your camping experience online please visit here.
Park safe. Remember to please use pull over/stopping bays or park away/off the road/highway if you would like to take photos
