p.s. Depending on where you are living in Sydney the Primrose Park Photography group may also be of interest to you. It has a pretty good traditional darkroom and if you join the club I believe the cost is very reasonable and access is quite flexible. Tony Peri is one member I know there who is active in the club and a traditional film shooter so feel free to contact him and make some further inquiries about the darkroom.
