  • Meet and Draw a llama
    Learn to draw a llama. This activity suits all drawing levels. We will be drawing together step by step, at your level. You will meet Cadbury the amazing llama. Practise your observational skills to notice what makes llamas unique. See you he moves, how he eats. Meet his best friends as we take a tour of his paddock and learn about llamas. We will then start drawing. You will learn some conventions of animation, that allow your llama to show different emotions. Use your imagination, to draw your llama doing activities you may never have thought possible! You will learn easy ways to draw complex poses. Other things to note You will need to hold your work up to the camera on your device, for me to see it. Drawing with a texta or soft lead pencil (2B) works best for this reason.

  • Self-drive Speed Boat Adventure
    The Sydney Harbour Bridge towers above like a cathedral of steel. The sun shimmers on the water. Breathe the fresh, salty air and gaze at the curved seashell shape of the Opera House and the glassy downtown skyscrapers reflecting the sky. You’re exploring the world famous Sydney Harbour on a boat. Even better, you’re the one behind the wheel. Yup, that’s right. You’re the captain on this unforgettable adventure. This is a fantastic way to see the main highlights of the harbour in a short amount of time - without having to share a boat with hundreds of others or listen to pre-recorded commentary. It’s an authentic, small-group experience with a knowledgeable local guide - giving you an up-close-and-personal glimpse of Sydney’s coolest spots. If you’ve never driven a boat before - don’t panic. The speedboat is safe and easy to operate and I’ll be right there to help you! No experience or licence is required. This two hour self-drive boat tour is perfect if you are short on time. However, if you have time for our three hour journey (https://www.airbnb.com.au/experiences/693197) - the upgrade is definitely worth it. When you factor in time for the safety briefing and preparation, the three hour trip actually gives you nearly twice as much time on the water! It’s a great value way to explore even more of the legendary Sydney Harbour. Other things to note Please wear casual clothes and shoes and bring sunscreen and a hat/cap. I will provide you with a life vest, and a waterproof bag for all your valuables. There are ponchos available if required.

  • Seidler's Sydney: art and architecture
    I meet guests at Milson's Point train station where we proceed to walk to Seidler's office complex. Here is where we get to see elements of his work that will echo throughout the walk. From this vantage point we will also view Sydney's first and most controversial tall apartment block. We then continue past Luna Park and Lavender Bay where we discuss Brett Whiteley and walk through Wendy Whiteley's garden. From here we walk the Bridge pausing at the Sirius Building. From here we make our way through The Rocks noting some significant street art. Our next stop is up George street where we enter two examples of Seidler's work as well as contrasting them to the new EY Building. From here we move to Australia Square. From here we enter the Angel Arcade and proceed to the Capita Building. Next and final stop is the MLC Tower. At all these destinations we engage with the architecture, art and history of the sites. At this point guests have easy access to public transport. Other things to note The walk is roughly 2-3 hours long. A reasonable level of fitness is required as we will be climbing some steps in places. Milson's Point station is not busy so we can meet easily. Meeting time: 10am
