WoW! What a week this past one has been... the only downside is not getting access to the internet.


As a prequel to the 2007 BDA National Conference, I attended the Study Tour which commenced in Brisbane, Queensland last Saturday, March 24 where we gathered to have a few drinks with the participants before walking off the discover Brisbane's "Southbank" nightlife and the days ahead touring the Sunshine coast, Queensland Hinterland and eventually arriving at the conference venue, Crowne Plaza Royal Pines Resort in the Gold Coast.


A moderately early start, after late-ish night wandering the streets of Brisbane with another SA participant, Mark P, before heading our way to the Sunshine Coast and Aussie World, on Sunday. Upon arrival at Aussie World (home of the famous Ettamogah Pub) saw the largest scone I've ever seen laden with jam n' cream - a great morning tea and a great start to the Study Tour. After a design session with Noosa building designer, Stephen Kidd lunch was on at the Ettamogah Pub - I'm certainly not going to go hungry on this trip...
After a scenic drive around Noosa, we booked into our digs "Australis Noosa Lakes Resort". Time to freshen up and get ready for this evening's activities... but more on that in other post...
...to be continued :)
