The Orange Camera Club has invited us to a lunch time BBQ on 25th September (12:00pm) at Lake Canobolas. Bring along all your supplies and join in the fun!

OCTOBER - Postponed to a later date due to Covid restrictions

It is proposed that interested members will enjoy a weekend out at Hill End with an overnight stay on Saturday, 9th. This will provide  many and varied photographic opportunities including sunset, sunrise, landscape, street and astro shots. Orange Camera Club members will also be joining in. Further details about available accommodation and dining facilities will be sent out shortly.


The town of Bathurst has a sister city relationship with Cirencester in the English Cotswelds, and a friendly battle between the two camera clubs is set to become an annual event.

20 images are submitted by each club, and the results revealed during a Zoom meeting where both clubs can communicate and interact with the judge.

Cirencester came out  on top this year, but rest assured, we will rally the troops and return to the battlefield with added vigour in 2022.

Clicking on the image will take you to the gallery of images in this year's battle.
