Barn Owls & Grasslands

Guided Photography Tours


After a successful (and huge!) 2022 season, our much-loved Barn Owls & Grasslands Nocturnal Photography Tours are back for 2023! Come and join Treeswift Wildlife & Nature on an unforgettable night out, tracking down and photographing the remarkable Eastern Barn Owl as it hunts under the stars.

Starting from Werribee, your group (3x pp max per night!) will head out west into grasslands, woodlands and wetlands in search of these stunning nocturnal predators and many other nocturnal species. Led by our team of professional guides and photographers, this is your opportunity to photograph this species (and many more) up close and in the wild! No photography experience needed and fun for the whole family – just bring your camera and let us do all the driving, owl-finding, spotlighting, guiding and photography tutoring whilst you just enjoy the wildlife and take stunning photos!

Other nocturnal targets include Australian Boobook, Tawny Frogmouth, Australian Owlet-nightjar, Growling Grass Frog, Spotted Marsh Frog, Striped Marsh Frog, Stubble Quail, Koala, Common Brushtail Possum, Australian Pipit, Grey-headed Flying Fox, Clicking Froglet, and microbats!

Great experience! Guide Jack was enthusiastic, patient, knowledgable and very professional. He went out of his way to make sure everyone in our group got great photos, carefully angling the vehicle and approaching from different sides. Serious skill involved, I can’t wait to come again!

It was such a joy to see the Barn Owls and Tawny Frogmouths on the night I went out with Jay. He skillfully located several birds, and frogs as well, as we slowly drove around. I would definitely consider going out again with the Treeswift group.
