Welcome to semester 1 2023! To start the year off right, Snowriders are dreaming of beautiful beaches, epic sights and great vibes in a way that only our melted-snow Noosa trip can provide!
We’ll be making wild memories in March with mates, waves and drinks the whole time.
Join QUT Snowriders for our summer trip – an amazing weekend and see how you’ll shape up with us when it comes to the slopes! Get stuck in, see what we are about, the good times in Noosa will be a small peak at the good times we will have in NZ!
Arrive early at QUT Gardens Point no later than 11:45am for a 12:00pm departure. This is when the party will begin!
Once we’ve checked in there’s a free drink waiting for us before we explore, chill or do our own thing until dinner.
Once the sun sets we’ll be welcomed by a DJ and KB’s famous Frothy Fridays Burger, Bev & Chips all included in our package
On Saturday we’ll be putting together a number of activities for small groups to offer as many options as possible but also allow everyone to do their own thing and relax as they wish. Some of the activities you can do are surf hire, stand up paddle boarding, a visit to Noosa’s fairy pools, beach volleyball and more!
Once again, our friends at Nomads Noosa will be putting together dinner for us followed by a sweet theme night and DJ to suite with more amazing bar deals.
All good weekends must come to an end, from mid-day to early arvo we’ll be packing our bags and checking out before being picked up by another bus transfer (12pm) and being delivered back to the wonderful (not as great as Noosa) Gardens Point campus. (2pm)
A weekend Getaway at Noosa with your favourite uni club doesn’t get much better than this. From beaches, beautiful national parks, surfing, fairy pools, sunsets and bars, we’re planning to take on it all.
Our package includes:
We’ll be staying at Nomads Noosa Hostel in the heart of Noosa junction where these guys are actually a sister group to the infamous Base hostel we stay at in New Zealand, and they’re decked out with not only their own bar but pool and beach volleyball court as well! They’re pretty much our second family.
