    Come on down to Rockit Indoor Climbing Gym on Monday Nights for Rockit's Student Night (Cheaper Entry for students with showing of student ID).

    This is a social event that will be held every week, as a way to try and make the horrible Mondays better by blowing of some steam, stress and hopefully crushing some projects.

    There is no registration or committing, just drop in and climb with some people looking to do the same.

    Check out the Facebook Community board or Activate's Rock Climbers board (Link in pinned post on community board) for any questions, car pooling or belay buddy finding.

    For prices, check out Rockit on facebook here:

    Hiking and camping in Girraween National Park.

    Girraween is an Aboriginal word which means "place of flowers" - an appropriate name for this park. In Winter (July), the wattle trees burst into blossom and are a sight to see, but Spring (September and October) is the best time to visit, for the countryside is bright with colour as a profusion of native wildflowers put on their spectacular annual show.

    8am meeting up at the student guild.

    Drive down to Girraween with a couple of stops on the way.

    Short hike to The Pyramid

    Day 2:

    Hike to The Sphinx, Turtle Rock and The Castle (~9km return).

    Optional hike up Mount Norman (+another 6km return).

    Day 3:

    Bald Rock

    Queen Mary Falls

    Return to USC via Switzerland apparently, back @8/9pm

    WhenFriday 29 September to 02 October 2017


    Cost:  $110 includes kayak hire, transport, dinner, camping equipment hire and additional FREE soaking service.  


    4 DAYS, 3 NIGHT of full on MOIST ACTION!

    This trip is subject to weather, departure and return dates may change (including whilst on the trip due to safety).

    What to Bring:

    Remember to pack as little as possible as its going to be a VERY tight fit!

    All belongings will be transported inside the limited room of the kayak and will get probably piss wet due to idiocy (Namely from Sarah, Anna and Trixie. Not Michael, He wouldnt. Couldnt even, For why would that god among mere mortals be soo mean?)

    - Clothing that can get wet

    - Shoes (Thongs/sandals or CROCS are great for a small hike on sandy path and getting wet daily!)

    - Warm clothes/Pyjamas for the night

    - Sleeping bag

    - Torch

    - Hat

    - Swimmers (Probably same as normal daytime clothes) & towel

    - Sunscreen

    - Insect repellent (DEET free please due to allergies!)

    - Plastic bags to keep things dry

    - Food and drink - you'll need enough for 4 days snacks, but keep it compact (Fruit is excellent). No glass! (Activate will provide dinner for 3 nights and breakfast while on trip)

    - Water bottle 2/3L

    This list is not exhaustive but when you're transporting it, it will be exhausting.

    We need to work as a team and participate in all aspects of the trip. this will guarantee the fun.

    Participation is more important than experience, willing beginners are most welcome.


    Be prepared for physical activity (FIRST DAY WILL BE HARD)




    Kayaking experience is preferred but not necessary - However due to long distances Kayaked it is recommended that Physical fitness (to an extent) is needed.

    The Adventure will start early Friday at the Uni guild before proceeding to Lake Cootharaba. Once on the water we will paddle upstream into the Everglades (18-25Km) to set up a base camp. Depending on the time there are further adventures possible.


    Day two is kayaking further up the river exploring and potential kayak floating star gazing!


    Day three will consist of further kayaking adventures to new campsite and a hike to the sandblow for the sunset and star watching!

    Day four is Pack up and return We will return to the Uni Monday evening, Potentially Late.

    Activate truly believes cranky attitudes can be washed off.
