Hi Pedro, welcome to APUG from another Melbournian. I was in Perth six or seven months ago. You've got some gorgeous coastlines on that side of the continent (even if you meant you're in Perth, Scotland ). Quite a bit of the cameras and darkroom gear I see on eBay located in Australia seem to be selling from Perth, so hopefully that means there's someone near you who's knowledgeable about working in a darkroom and can help you out with gear. As far as advice and assistance goes, you've most definitely come to the right place! People here are amazing and incredibly generous and there is already a mountain of information to be had with a simple search of the forums. If no one's asked your particular question before, I'm sure the APUG community won't have any hesitation in helping.
