The Club conducts an annual photographic exhibition at the Waterside Pavilion located in Hobart’s historic waterfront. This is a chance for members to showcase their work and learn about the process of preparing their images to print.
The exhibition is open to the public and members can offer their exhibit/s for sale.
The 2019 exhibition is scheduled for the 31st October (official opening) through to the 12th November. For more information, check out our 2019 Exhibition page.
Regular events are organised exclusively for club members. Past events have included member’s only access to Government House, exclusive access to Baskerville Raceway, a BBQ for members and family and The Hamilton Show. Excursions are promoted on the Club’s private Facebook pages.
