2018 Camping Trip and Site Visits
Time & Location
About The Event
We will be departing the SCU engineering block at 11am on Thursday the 16th of August (during the study break) and going in convoy to the Middle Pub in Mullumbimby to have lunch. If you live close to Mullumbimby, you can meet us at the Middle Pub. From there, we will stock up on food and snacks before we head to the Tyalgum Showgrounds Camp Site. We'll have dinner at the campground (provided) and get the campfire going. There is a pub within walking distance if we're making too much noise and want to enjoy another venue (responsibly).
The next morning, we'll cook up some bacon and egg rolls (provided) and you have the choice to either chill, head to the local creek to fossick for crystals, or head to Mount Warning. Please note that if you head to Mount Warning or to the local creek, this will not be a part of the camping trip. You'll need to ensure you're fit enough and have prepared everything.
Since we'll all be driving our own vehicles, you're free to leave whenever you like the next day.
We know you're all big boys and girls, and know what to pack for an overnight camping trip, but just in-case you've never been away from Southern Cross University and/or Lismore before, here's a list of the items you may need to bring, or share with a friend:
KFS (knife, fork, spoon)
Camping plate, cup and bowl
*This is not an exhaustive list.
The camping trip costs $15 and includes overnight camping costs, dinner and breakfast. We'll be paying for some snacks at the Mullumbimby Middle Pub, however, you may need to buy lunch if this isn't enough. All meals there cost $15. If you're still around for lunch on the second day, you can purchase something in Tyalgum town centre.
This is an event organised by your engineering society and there will be a few opportunities to have an alcoholic beverage. Please ensure you do so responsibly. Please note that there is an expectation that we all behave in a way befitting a future engineer. This means that we must comport ourselves at all times with integrity, fairness, respect the rights of others, practice competently, exercise leadership and promote sustainability as stated in the Engineers Australia Code of Ethics . In-short, don't be a dick head, get wasted and ruin it for future years. Let's all be responsible adults, look out for our mates, have fun and enjoy a safe time.
