    Welcome to APUG Pat,
    I live in Geelong and use 8x10 and very occaisonally 35mm. There a quite a few members living in and around Sydney. We've got a forum on here for Australian members so if you want to post anything about events happening here, you can post them on it. Hope you enjoy the forum

    G'day Pat, not quite a large format user and not quite Newcastle. I use a 6x9cm monorail camera and live in Sydney, but I'm often found visiting my Dad on Port Stephens so tend to hang around Newcastle now and then. Possibly heading up for Steam Fest at Maitland next weekend. Drop me a PM if you're likely to be around.

    Regards, Matt.

    hi Pat,

    I'm in Sydney and use a Toyo rail with 4x5 and 6x9, mostly colour trannies. I'm coming up to Nelson Bay in few weeks to spend some time on Stockton Beach. happy to catch up when in town.

    Cheers,
    Brett
