Photography trip Big Desert and Silo Art EASY / MEDIUM

Big Desert, Wyperfeld National Park, VIC

See more trips

Finals weekend without our team in it is not so fun! So we have decided to go away , hoping to practice with our new drone and take some awesome pictures of the Silo Art  that Victoria has to offer!

So it will not be all about 4wdriving but hoping to do some sand driving in the Big Desert!

Plan is to meet up in Ararat, drive to Rupanyup and admire the first Silo art then to Sleep Hills and Brim for some more art.

After that we drive to Rosebery, where the Silo Art is still a work in progress.

Then we make way to our camp spot at Lake Albacutya( Western Beach) this has toliets and cold showers. Maybe there is oppurtunity for some night photography!

Hoping to do some Big desert driving on Saturday, we can decide if we go to the last to Silo arts or save them for Sunday.

Second night at Western Beach.

Sunday we either look at  2 more Silo's or make our way home after brekky

Our main aim for this trip is to combine 4wdriving with some photography!

I would love to join if you decide to post another trip! It's such a fun easy area to explore.. some tracks get a bit boring in long distance as they are very bumpy, but the big dunes are worth a crack! Been there 3 times (one time after Border track) now and loved every time.

Also, not sure if you ever been before but the lake where you going to camp is dry, has been dry for years! Just a heads up.
