Hunter Valley Offsite

Occasionally I get sent to cool places like the Sebel Kirkton Park Hotel in the Hunter Valley for an offsite.

The hotel was stunning, set in beautiful rollings hills. The property had a few dams and I saw some kangaroos hopping in the distance.

This is the room I shared with Katia. Another thing about offsites - they're kind of like having a sleepover in high school again. I always get great roommates so it's a lot of fun.


Bird of paradise flowers.


Where are our rooms?


Pretty balcony view.



Close-up of roses.


Piece of wood I smashed into three pieces using the palm of my hand. Yeah!


Me and Katia with Olympic gold medal winner Lauren Burns, who gave us a bit of a martial arts lesson.


Sun setting.




All prettied up at the Casino Royal-themed dinner.





Even under duress, I won't give up my lip gloss.


Retribution is swift.



View from my window the next morning.



Going for a walk around the property with Katia and Shaden.





I also stopped at a winery on the way home and stocked up on some red, white and dessert wine. Does an offsite get much better than this?!
