Adventure Weekend ღ

Time April 28th, 2014 in College Study Abroad | No Comments by

A couple of weeks ago, my program’s Student Services Coordinator took myself and other students from GFU and UQU to Binna Burra, Lamington National Park. It was a weekend full of fun and exploration. I really loved getting away from Uni and disconnecting from the world for a bit (no wifi in the mountains) :)

We stayed here:

Some of the highlights of Adventure Weekend were: 

  • Yummy food!
  • Watching an Australian movie known as: The Castle
  • High Ropes course
  • Guided Hike
  • Swimming
  • Bush Dance lessons (so much fun!)
  • camp fire
  • s’mores!
  • Flying Fox (zip-lining)
  • exploring with friends


My favorite part of the weekend was definitely the Gwongoorool Rock Pools.
It was the freshest water I have ever seen and even though it was a cold dip, it was the most refreshing swim I have ever taken and that image of the rock pools will forever be implanted in my head. Simply beautiful!
