Exploring Nature with Tamzin Henderson - NOV 2019

A 4 day Adventure into some of the most spectacular sites Great Barrier has to offer. A tour of Nature, Wildlife and the sky. We promise you won't be disappointed.

There are not many locations in the world where you can see and photograph the nights sky with such clarity, and we were certainly spoilt for choice with locations, too.
