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.
All prettied up at the Casino Royal-themed dinner.
Even under duress, I won’t give up my lip gloss.
Retribution is swift.

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?!
