Event details

Whether you like live music, fancy joining a club, or want to win a few prizes, Welcome Back Week has you covered! We’ve got lots planned to give you an awesome start to your next semester.

Grab a feed from Laneway Eats or the Food Truck Fair, vibe out to DJ Lily Street and her infectious beats, and enjoy free tea and damper cooking by the fire at the Indigenous Yarning Circle. Stop by our friends at Medibank for some free fruit, arcade style games and health checks, have your camera ready as the 10 piece Marching Band make their way around campus, and keep your eyes peeled for our giant Razor Stilt Walker - you won't miss him! Join a club or sports team (or make your own), make some new mates, and don't forget to stop by the Vanessa Van for merch, games, giveaways and chill out zones!
