I hope you’re all still doing well and enjoying yourselves. I can’t believe how fast its been, and that we’re already into the 5th week of uni!
Hearing from those who went to Muru Mittigar last Saturday, it was overall a great event. I think everyone who went learnt a few new things about Australian Aboriginal culture, including how to throw a boomerang…
From this week, we have a NEW registration system. No more emailing us to sign up! Just click this link HERE to go to the event registration form.
Week 5 Event – Spit to Manly Bushwalk
This week, we will have a 4 hours (10km) walking trip from The Spit to Manly. The bush walk starts from The Spit entrance, walking across many bays, beaches and beautiful sceneries throughout.
There will be two resting stops, at Clontarf Beach and Dobroyd Point. Reaching Manly, we can spend some time enjoying the beach either at Manly itself or at Shelley beach. To mark the end of the whole walk, we will take a romantic ferry ride home from Manly wharf. The whole walk is tiring but very much enjoyable, so be prepared and get the best out of the bush walking experience!
Bring: Comfortable shoes, sun cream, water, camera, hat , swimming suits (if you intend to swim) and your own Lunch.
But you need to pay your own transportation fee.
– Bus fee from Wynyard to Spit: $4.00 (8 sections)
– Ferry fee from Manly to Circular Quay: $6.40 single ticket ($48.10 for Manly Travel Ten)
RSVP: close this Friday (7 pm).
IMPORTANT: However, the weather forecast for the weekend is rainy. If it rains on Saturday, we will postpone it on Sunday. If it rains on Sunday, we will have to cancel this event… Anyone who joins the event, please check your email on Friday night for the latest update -/-
