There are also other cottages that can sleep larger numbers. (see me for prices) Please take some time to work out what style cabin you would like and let me know so I can have it put aside for you. (I can try to match you up if you wish to share accommodation.)

  • Don’t live too far away? You are also welcome to just stay at home and come every day.

  • Sessions start 10am SHARP to 7pm.




Because of the nature of our project, I am only taking 14 people. That way, everyone can receive the right amount of attention during the classes. This means payment of a $50 deposit upon booking will confirm your position.

(cash or direct debit). Further payments to me (for class can be made in instalments, full payment due 1 AUGUST 2020.

Accommodation payments will be separate (paid directly to the resort) and at this stage all they require is your first night’s accommodation (per cabin). This payment is due October 2019. If you require assistance in choosing a cabin or a cabin buddy, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will write a list up so it’s clear. I also have a map and list of what type of cabins are available and the cost.

PLEASE NOTE, The Hahndorf Resort is already 50% booked out for this weekend in 2020!

So, do not miss your booking payment – get it in before 30 October 2019.

You can call them directly – 1300 763 836

So, get your Photos sorted ladies and save the date.

 Looking forward to seeing you there!

Take care, loves and hugs,
