Here are a few shots that I took at the Academy yesterday.
Below is one of the workrooms. These are great, they have kitchen facilities and bathrooms as well as plenty of natural light.

This shot was taken through the window as the room was being used by another group. This is one half of the roo. See al the lovely big windows?
This is the firing range which could be used for gathering in the evening, or as a nice big workshop.
The Motel rooms from the back. Each room opens up to the outside with a little balcony/private area.
A shot of the inside of one of the rooms. The rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, bar fridge, TV?Foxtel, airconditioning and ensuite bathrooms. Just the basics, but very comfortable.

We also have access to this lovely big heated swimming pool for those who may need to burn off some excess energy or rejuvenate.

This is a book that Mary Jo co-wrote with Sunny Koch, it is a gorgeous book, jam packed with inspiration!
And finally, a shot of Darling Harbor where we were staying whilst in Sydney, loved it. A real buzzing place!
More tomorrow!
