    Firstly, welcome to APUG.

    Secondly, this country is physically large, if you would care to go sub-atomic by giving your location, perhaps we can tailor an appropriate answer.

    There are a couple of excellent places teaching the wet side as well as quite unusual wet and old techniques near Daylesford.

    Mick.

    You can do 10 week courses at the Australian Centre for Photography, Paddington.
    http://www.acpworkshop.com/

    Chris at Blanco Negro darkroom also runs classes, not sure of the timetable
    http://www.blanconegro.com.au/
    He'll also be doing a one off weekend course at the ACP very soon.

    Pointlight is now being taught by different people. It used to be Gordon Undy who was great. I know nothing about the new people, just heard there had been a change.

    Further out of Sydney is the Black Mountain school at Oberon.

    Because it's a 3 hour drive they run intensive live in workshops.
    Tutors are Bob Kersey & Gordon Undy.
    Be great if you're into landscape & large format.

    Pointlight Workshops are being taught by Enrico Scotece and Peter Lang. Their work is currently on the walls in the Point Light Gallery. Why not go and have a look and see if they could teach you something. Having recently spoken with both Enrico and Peter about the workshops I'm sure that their courses would be good value. One or both of them are at Point Light on the weekends and they are happy to talk about the content of the workshops. No affiliation.

    thanks all! I have checked out the acp and it's all a little slap-dash. From other reports it sounds like a high school approach.
    Also checked out point light.. definately the way to go..
