Drones capture Australian landscapes like you’ve never seen them before

Drone Photography Australia

You’ve never seen the Australian landscape look like this before! Drones are being used for more than just spying on the neighbours, a whole new genre of travel photography is emerging and it’s thanks to these flying camera devices.

This form of photography has grown so much recently that Tourism Australia has invited drone photographers to compete in their Australia From Above competition. Run by SkyPixel, the competition invites aerial and drone photographers to share their best bird’s eye view shot of the Australian landscape.

“Advances in technology are enabling us to tell Australia’s story in ways previously not possible and the level of engagement we get when we share some of these amazing drone clips on our social channels is just extraordinary,” Tourism Australia chief marketing officer Lisa Ronson said.

“It’s really exciting to be part of a competition that provides such a great platform for this new generation of content creators to capture the rich colours, patterns and textures of Australia’s diverse landscape and share this with the rest of the world.”
