    Default Are there any photo forums in Australia?

    I travel to Australia about 2 - 3 times a year and would like some local knowledge on places to go to for some really good landscape shots. I guess the best bet is to ask the locals there for a list of these site. And the best way to ask them, IMHO, would be if they have an equivalent of Clubsnap. I don't know of any such website and I would be grateful if someone can point me to one.

    Thanks in advance.

    A copy of Lonely Planet will probably do the trick They aren't in the business of recommending desolated or otherwise non-eye-pleasing places

    Thanks for your replies but I think I know Oz rather well. Its just that I don't know the really good places to go to take landscapes. I went on a trip to the Great Ocean Road by myself. I had a car but I feel with all that potential scenic sights to take, I got nowhere near to what a visitor can take without local knowledge. Hence I hope that if there is an equivalent to ClubSnap, maybe a brother or sisiter can recommend some off-the- route stuff.

    Any help?

    Don't tell me that in the whole of Oz, they don't have a photo forum.

    They have camera clubs everywhere you go and they also have a Nikon club. The need for photo forum is probably not there.

    I know of one called Passion for Pixels which is based out of Melbourne.
    It's a newsgroup run by a guy I sold my Bronica stuff to many years ago, and we've kept in-touch on and off.

    See if you can do a search for them.

    Yah..there seem to be no equivilant of CS in Australia. The photographers here doesn't seem to get online a lot. The more serious ones goes to photography schools and the hobbist just hang around camera clubs in town. Maybe Australia is too big to have a cental forum.

    One thing we can do is to move CS to Australia.

    This is what I've been searching around for quite some time.

    This is great! Thanks you ever so much. Exactly what I need! Now I can communicate with some fellow photogs when I go down to Oz which I'll do next month. For my daughter's graduation in Sydney.
