Australia From Above

Now that my time in Australia is over, I’ve been looking through the thousands of photos I’ve taken.  I just had to invest in a drone whilst in Australia and believe that it offers such a different perspective for landscape photographers.  I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to develop my skills with drone photography over ten months through Australia and South East Asia. It was here though, across Australia, that the drone really came into its own. If you wanted to check out some inspiring Australian aerial photography, to see Australia from above, you’ve come to the right place.

So, without further ado, here’s my collection of drone photos covering 15,000 miles of Australia; from Melbourne to Perth and (almost) everywhere in between.  There’s something magical about this country which can only really be appreciated from the air.  I could probably spend years and years capturing Australia from the skies and each picture would be unique.  The landscape is so diverse and I hope I’ve been able to capture this.

Well, what do you think? Australia is just absolutely stunning from the sky isn’t it?

I’ve put together some tips on drone photography generally here but these photos were all taken with the Mavic Pro 2 drone in 2017 and 2018. I’d love to return soon, perhaps with a newer drone, to capture more of Australia from above.

  1. Im just reading about your time in Perth. Yes it used to be easy to get jobs if you were from overseas. However as the mining industry has had a downturn, most have moved back to Perth to work. Perth is my home town although I have lived here on the east coast for the last 10 years. Ah the great north west of WA its beautiful. My bestie is right at the moment doing a drive from Perth to – she is just out of Darwin. and loving it except for the humidity. looking forward to reading more of your blog
