Experience the South Coast with Phil Thurston
Come and experience the beautiful South Coast of NSW and support the local communities that have been affected by the recent bushfire disasters. Join ocean and nature photographer (and South Coast local) Phil Thurston for a weekend away in beautiful Narooma, NSW on the 14th and 15th of March, 2020. Join Phil to experience some of the wonders the South Coast has to offer while having fun and learning about photography from an experienced professional photographer. The event also aims to promote bringing tourism and business back to the South Coast after the devastating bushfires that have affected the area.
The weekend getaway will consist of 2 x guided snorkel tours to Montague Island with Underwater Safaris where we will snorkel with and photograph the friendly local fur seals, a sunrise landscape photography workshop, as well as an image review and editing tips session where Phil will be sharing his tips and experience. Staff from AquaTech will also be on hand and will provide the latest underwater housing equipment from AquaTech to help you capture stunning images in the water.
You’re encouraged to book your own accommodation and make your own way to Narooma so we can ensure we spread our money around. We also want guests to adopt the “Come with an empty esky” idea to help support the local businesses.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be going directly to supporting local businesses on the South Coast. Phil and AquaTech staff are donating their own time, and AquaTech will also be covering the costs for staff accommodation as well as food and drink on the Saturday afternoon edit session so you know all your money is going directly to local businesses. On top of this, any additional funds raised by ticket sales will be donated to local charities and organisations.
This event will be limited to 12 places to ensure the most comfortable and engaging experience for all guests can be achieved. The event is open to all ages, however under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You will also need to be a confident swimmer to get the most out of the weekend.
