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.

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
Hike to The Sphinx, Turtle Rock and The Castle (~9km return).
Optional hike up Mount Norman (+another 6km return).

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

- Sleeping bag
- Swimmers (Probably same as normal daytime clothes) & towel
- Insect repellent (DEET free please due to allergies!)
