When you are putting up a business or thinking about buying a new house, most people will typically say that the location you choose is crucial. When it comes to taking stunning photos and choosing the best location, the same idea holds true.
So, if you are looking for a great place for your next photo shoot, you should seriously include Australia to your list. From gorgeous beaches, a massive outback to lush hinterlands with a wide variety of plant and animal life, the Land of Oz is indeed a blessed country.
One important thing you should also consider is your means of transportation. Australia is a vast country. While it has a good public transportation system, one efficient and cost-effective way to find all the best photography locations is to have a vehicle.
Fortunately, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to drive around the country. With little effort, you can easily find a company that offers a standard SUV car rental service. This way, you can safely and conveniently have a place to store and transport all your photography equipment and have the freedom to travel anywhere you please.
Now, without further ado, here are some of Australia’s best and stunning photography locations that you need to visit straight away.
AC/DC Lane, Melbourne
Whether you are a fan or not, you should literally take a trip down memory lane. Formerly known as Corporation Lane, AC/DC Lane serves as a tribute to the iconic Aussie rock group, which features a larger than life mural of Angus Young, as well as other unique graffiti. So, if taking impressive street art is included in your photography list, then visit AC/DC Lane, which is in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
Dicky Beach, Queensland
Don’t let the name deceive you, but this unspoiled beach is one of the Sunshine Coast’s best-kept secrets. You don’t have to be a seasoned photographer to take stunning snapshots of the beautiful waves crashing by the beach with the sun setting as your backdrop. In case you didn’t know, Dicky Beach is the site of the SS Dickey, which got shipwrecked here way back in 1893.
Araluen Botanical Gardens, Perth
Situated just 35km from Perth’s CBD in Roleystone, the beautiful gardens of Araluen is a perfect spot to take photos of exotic plant species. Whether you are looking for a backdrop of Marri, Eucalyptus, and Blackbutt trees or an impressive array of Tulips, Tea Roses or Camellias, you’ll find them all here and more at Araluen Botanical Gardens.
The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
This World Heritage-listed attraction is the largest living structure that is visible in space. Home to almost 3,000 coral reefs and a massive variety of marine life, the Great Barrier Reef is, undeniably, every photographer’s paradise, especially for those who are passionate for taking stunning aerial and underwater snaps.
Uluru/Ayers Rock, Northern Territory
This is another World Heritage site you can’t afford to miss. If you want to take stunning landscape outdoor photos, then make sure you head over to this 348-metre high natural monolith. You’ll be hard-pressed to take a bad photo of Uluru. The perfect time to shoot is at dusk or dawn when you can really see the colors stand out.
The Sydney Opera House, Sydney
You can’t go to Straya without taking at least a few snaps of this iconic building. The Sydney Opera House is a sight to behold and recognizable worldwide.
