‌International Students of Swinburne, we invite YOU to join us for an AMAZING day out on the Mornington Peninsula!

We will depart Hawthorn campus by bus together in the morning, and our first stop will take us to the gorgeous Moonlit Wildlife Sanctuary to meet native Australian animals. After lunch, we’ll get our feet wet by spending the afternoon with Surf Life Saving Victoria and learn the truth and myths of what’s in our waters. You will learn essential beach safety skills to help you make the most of your Aussie beach holiday and HAVE FUN doing it!

  • The cost is $10.00 for the day (non-refundable).
  • Once registered, you'll receive instructions and a payment form to bring to SHQ.
  • Only one ticket per student.

Morning Activities: 
Visit Moonlit Sanctuary. Meet koalas, kangaroos, dingoes, Tasmanian devils, reptiles and hand-feed wallabies!
