Unimates Aboriginal Cruise Trip & Other Events

*NOTE: There are changes in information, please check the highlighted ones

Hi guys,

Here’s the details for week 4’s trip.

Click on the image to have a bigger view. 🙂

It will be on Friday, 4th April 2008. With tentative meeting time being 11.45 AM and finish at around 3 PM. Final confirmed time will not vary much and will be posted closer to the event date.

As you might have noticed, the event actually has a slight change. Instead of going to Koori Centre, we will be making trip on the Koori cruise. There will be cost of $55 per person, and all information could be read from the attached image above. It is possibly the best way to learn more about Aboriginal people’s culture, so if you are interested, register soon. It will be a fantastic experience. Deadline being Thursday, 3rd April 2008. 🙂

Registration is as usual, send us an email with ‘Unimates Aboriginal Cruise’ as the topic, then your name, AC number (if you have) and payment preference if you could not make it to the Coffee and Cakes.

Any queries, please do not hesitate to let us know. Unimates@yahoo.com.au.

With great views and a spectacular setting in the Sydney Harbour National Park, Shark Island is the perfect destination for a weekend picnic; large grassy areas, shady trees or a gazebo available. Enjoy a relaxing ferry trip each way and spend a few hours or the whole day on Shark Island.

Island Facilities

  • The island features five picnic shelters, each containing a table and attached bench, and four open air picnic tables with attached benches.

  • There is one gazebo on the island that can accommodate up to 30 people (this can not be booked, it is a first come, first served basis)

  • Drinking water and toilets are available.

  • There is plenty of shade and a small beach area for swimming.

  • There is no shop on the island all food and drink should be taken with you.

Interesting information:

Matilda’s Shark Island Ferry departs daily from both Darling Harbour and Circular Quay. The island received its name because of its shape – not its wildlife! Lying just off Rose Bay, the 1.5-hectare island has spectacular views down the harbour to the Bridge and the Opera House.

Yup, so if you are interested, you can start register. 🙂


Other Events

On news about other events, there could be slight changes in terms of the date of the events. The most likely changes that would take place is as follows.
1) Pub Crawl event and Bushwalk event switch date
2) NRL game being pushed back one day to Friday night of the week

They are not confirmed yet, and we will keep everyone posted when the decisions are made. We are sorry if it causes any inconveniences (as you might have planned long time before!), but there are alterations needed and therefore the changes.

Alrighty, that’s it for now. Enjoy the rest of the break guys, see you all soon! 🙂
