What’s On?

What’s on at Central Highlands Imaging & Photographic Association?

At Central Highlands Imaging & Photographic Association we believe that there is always something to learn, no matter what your level of experience is.  We also believe that learning should be fun.  Our aim is to bring you a series of interesting workshops and fun group outings catering to all levels of experience.

Regular workshops will be held at 7pm on the 4th Friday of every month (except December) at the Gordon Public Hall.  Bring your camera and come ready to learn.

Group outings to interesting locations will be scheduled throughout the year.  Please check the calendar regularly – we don’t want you to miss out on any of the fun.

CHiPA Announcement

Monday 23 November, 2020 to Thursday 31 December, 2020

CHiPA Workshops and Outings cancelled for 2020


It is with regret that the committee of CHiPA informs our members and friends that we will not be holding any more in person workshops or outings for this year.
The Covid-19 situation with its levels of lockdown for different regions changing regularly necessitates our decision.
We do not think it is worth the risk to our members to be gathering in the current situation and it is not fair to our presenters to be booking them and then needing to cancel them.
We hope you understand our decision and we will surely be seeing you when the situation is safe for all.

We will be restarting in 2021 with our January Walkaround Workshop in Daylesford.
Our AGM has been rescheduled to our February workshop in Gordon.
Stay safe and well,
CHiPA Committee.

Come and join us for our CHiPA January Walkaround workshop starting at the grounds of the beautiful Jubilee Lake reserve in Daylesford.

There is also the option of night photography across at Lake Daylesford and around the city itself- bring your tripod for this.
A caravan park is onsite for those that may need to travel.
There is a playground, toilet facilities, barbecues and it is pet friendly.

Jubilee Lake is located a couple of kilometres down Jubilee Lake Road, off the Ballan Daylesford Road, almost opposite the turn-off to Lake Daylesford. There is ample signage on the main road.



We will meet there at 6pm, bring your picnic or BBQ food (there are BBQ's on the grounds) and a comfy chair for our first event for the year.
