    Assuming you want to do Black and White printing, I can think of 3 off-hand. Others may know of some more.

    1) Pointlight in Surry Hills

    2) Blanco Negro

    3) Australian Centre of Photography

    I use number 3 as it is slightly cheaper than the others, particularly if you buy blocks of time. The facilities are fairly standard. LPL 7700 B&W enlargers. Kodak chemicals are used and are set up by the staff. I haven't tried the other 2 but they appear to be quite reputable.

    Best regards,
    Thanasis
