Hey Unimates people! I hope you settling down in Sydney and university life. Well, don’t get complacent with life. Read on, we have a couple of events lining up for you.
Week 3 Event – Blue Mountains Day Trip
First and foremost, Unimates Week 3 Event! This is our first trip out of Sydney for this semester and it is less than two hours from Sydney. The mountain’s breeze, the waterfall’s roar and the forest’s whisper are waiting for you.
DO NOT hesitate! Since we only have 50 seats, pay at the payment times to secure your place in the event. We have booked a coach to take us around during the day.
*Wentworth Falls Lookout will be our first stop, and then a chance to recharge in Leura Village. Another adventure will start from Echo Point / Three Sisters, and then bushwalking along the majestic cliffs and end up at Scenic World where we will be taking a steep aerial railway ride. There will be more than enough opportunities to take photos with spectacular scenery!!

Gold Coast Trip (Mid-Semester Break Trip)
It’s official, we’re going to the Gold Coast! Mark it down on your calendars: from the 26th of September to the 28th, we’ll be bathing ourselves in sun, surf and an all-round glorious time.
Originally our plan had been to spend all three days at some world class theme parks, but some members have suggested that we provide a more varied alternative itinerary. Therefore, we have conjured up a second, concurrent itinerary for those of you who would like to see what else the Gold Coast has to offer.
Spend three days at three of Australia’s best theme parks which will get you to visit rollercoasters, seal and dolphin shows and monstrous water slides that wind and dip and stretch into eternity. Your VIP ticket actually lasts a lot longer than 3 days.. well into 2012, so if you really love it, you can go back there next time, free of charge!
Sea World: Dolphins fighting polar bears. Penguins fighting seals. Sharks fighting alligators! A day of nature at its fiercest!* (Animals may not be fighting each other, or in the same enclosure)
Warner Brothers Movie World:
Like rollercoasters? Like Batman? Like Bugs Bunny? Like sitting on a rollercoaster alongside Batman and Bugs Bunny? This is your theme park!
Wet n’ Wild: MONSTROUS waterslides that dip, curve, stretch up to the heavens and plunge down into cool, dark waters. J
The alternative itinerary is more structured and lets you see a little bit of Queensland, outside of the theme parks. Learn to surf on Surfer’s Paradise’s golden sands. Spend an evening playing with koalas, kangaroos and crocodiles and experience a taste of Aboriginal culture with buffet. And also, a day trip to Brisbane!!
The price will be around $400 and we will be collecting deposits of $200 this Wednesday and Thursday!!
1. Wednesday 10 August, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm: Usual Coffee and Cakes Location
2. Thursday 11 August, 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm: at the Unimates Office (Ben: 0401420329)
