  • 6:00 am Esperance Falls
    Esperance Falls
    6:00 am – 6:00 am
    Southwest National Park, Tasmania, Australia
    2022 was a great year for the club so let’s kick off 2023 with a unique walk to Esperance Falls.
    Some may know me as a mountain man however, falls remain as some of the most lucrative bagging features in Tasmania, most being rarely visited or unnamed and this is no exception. The Peak Rivulet feeds this towering falls some 40m in height over two tiers just north of Adamson’s Peak, a mecca for the Rob Wilson’s of fall-bagging. Walkers attempting the steep off track gradient amongst South West scrub are rewarded with a summer treat in the understory.
    We will drive to some random forestry coup in the middle of nowhere and begin the walk in an opening. This will lead us down some steeper contour lines towards a direct bearing to the falls in question where I hope to hit a fire break which provides easy walking. Leaving the fire break, walking should be through relatively open rain forest as we push closer to the falls. Around 300m away, cliffs will need to be navigated. Despite the 6km return from the walk starting point, expect the walk to take atleast 6 hours and up to 10 hours if we run into significant scrub.
    This is a day trip suited for those who are resilient in scrub and off track walking. Although not as scrubby as some other falls in the area, expect slow progress towards the target.
    I will carry a PLB and the club first aid kit. Do not hesitate to contact me if you are unsure about the experience required to undertake this walk.

  • 3:00 pm MEDCAMP 2023
    MEDCAMP 2023
    3:00 pm – 3:00 pm
    Little Swanport, Tasmania, Australia

    MedCamp is an amazing opportunity to break the ice with your fellow classmates in a safe, exciting and enjoyable setting. Over this weekend you will be able to partake in a weekend filled with fun, games and learning. Some of the opportunities available include suturing, IV cannulation practice, first aid scenarios and other exciting stations (no prior experience needed!). There will also be plenty of time to meet your peers and some of the senior students running the camp. Saturday night includes a party with students from Years 2-5 attending, with the theme ‘Things you can’t live without’, so interpret that how you will you and bring out your most fun costumes! (Med students usually go all out!)

    TUMSS will be operating a bar at MedCamp during both nights. If this is something that you are interested in, please ensure that you have the appropriate ID available for the duration of the camp. TUMSS maintain a zero-tolerance policy on risky and dangerous behaviour, and ask that you are respectful to your fellow students while attending MedCamp. 


    Tickets include bus transport to and from Gumleaves Bush Holiday Camp in Little Swanport and your food, accommodation and activities throughout the camp.

    Tickets also include a TUMSS membership (with a keytag and discounts to food/drink places)!. You will have the option to choose between a wet membership ($10) or a dry membership ($5). The wet membership will be inclusive of two alcoholic drinks to be collected on our O-week societies day (22nd February), whereas the dry membership includes no drinks. Societies day is one of our biggest events of the year, where you can sign up to many other university societies and see what discounts are on offer, as well as meet the broader TUMSS team! It is completely free to attend, and promises a very fun afternoon.

    No changes can be made to membership type if you change your mind before societies day, so if you think you may want to drink you must purchase a wet membership now – and if you change your mind, soft drinks will always be able to be collected on the day!


    Completion of the ‘Consent is a conversation’ workshop by the Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) is mandatory for anyone attending the camp. This is to be held on Thursday 16th at 13.45pm – 14.45pm in person, details of which will be included on the orientation timetable. 


    If you have any questions about MedCamp please don’t hesitate to email us on welfare@tumss.org.au!

    We can’t wait to meet you all – see you there!

Saturday 18 February
  • 5:00 am Mt Wright
    Mt Wright
    5:00 am – 5:00 am
    Southwest National Park, Tasmania, Australia
    Climb Mt Wright with me, a spectre that dramatically drops away with it’s notoriously steep slopes at the northern tip of the Denison Range in pristine South West wilderness, buttongrass and all. There is a splendid array of peaks that can be seen from the top, including much of the Denison Range but more interestingly, on the way up we’ll make a visit to a natural arch carved out of rock that sticks up from the steep gradient (boulders are more than welcome to have a shot).
    We’ll begin our walk by crossing the Gordon River and then following it through the Vale of Rasselas towards the historic settlement of Gordonvale. We can revisit Gordonvale as a short return trip on the way back at the discretion of the group. We will then leave the track. At a sharp bend in the river, target in site, a straight line will be made towards the Wright arches, picking the most reasonable spur, dodging button grass and avoiding bands of tea tree along the way before rising very steeply up onto the flanks of Mt Wright. After attaining a quick rest at the arch we will continue until the summit has been obtained. A return will be made via the same route, most likely by rolling down the hill.
    The whole walk should take 8-10 hours and I expect we will be back at dark. The walk from the bend at the Gordon River towards Mt Wright is off track, the flanks guarding the summit are steep so please make sure you are prepared for the required scrambling. Those who are wanting to participate in the walk should have previous bushwalking experience.
    The Gordon River rapidly rises and declines in level and this can sometimes make the crossing tricky. If there is too much rain forecast for the catchment area, I may choose to switch this walk out for another route. My nominated walk will be the Adamsons + Creekton Falls circuit.
    I will carry a first-aid kit, a PLB and an emergency AeroPress. If you are unsure of the experience required to undertake this walk, do not hesitate to contact me.
    Petrol will cost $10, please bring this with you in cash.

    10:00 am – 10:00 am
    Hobart TAS, Australia

    Nipaluna/Hobarts first and only Aboriginal cultural tour. A profound experience connecting us deeper to our history. An experience that is not to be missed!

    Takara nipaluna is the first and only Aboriginal tour of nipaluna/Hobart. This walk of nipaluna and its waterfront follows the route taken in 1832 by a group of 40 members of the Aboriginal resistance, as they progressed to the old Government House to negotiate an end to the Black War. takara nipaluna – Walking Hobart – gives voice to the palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) perspective and continued presence within this modern city, exposing the layers of history beneath the asphalt.

    Created and delivered by palawa/warlpiri woman Nunami Sculthorpe-Green, takara nipaluna is informative, provocative, entertaining and surprising. It will lead you to a richer understanding of this place and of the palawa experience here. A revelatory, truth-telling performance that will resonate with you long after the walk ends.

    More information


    At Meander Wilderness Experiences we’re all about highlighting the unique flora and fauna of the Meander River while you soak (literally!) in the sights. Our tours are a whitewater experience, where you’ll enjoy the thrill of grade one & two rapids all while taking in the tranquility of the Meander River and its surrounds. You’ll be taken through a full briefing before hitting the water for a skills session before you float your way toward the first round of rapids. From here, you’ll spend 1.5 to two hours on the water and travel three kilometres downstream while our guides share local stories from days gone by and give you the option to try out tricks with your newfound river sledding skills!

    The tours kick off at the Meander Memorial Hall where we’ll meet you and you’ll be introduced to our awesome guides. From here, you’ll be transported to the riverbank where our river sledding adventure begins! We’ll look after you from the moment you arrive, right through to when we conclude the tour and you’re dropped back safely to where you started

    The best thing about our tours is getting out in our adventure playground with the fresh air and the pristine water which has flowed directly from the rugged Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. So go on, have a gander at Meander with us!

    Intro Canyoning Trip for 2023
    5:30 am – 5:30 am
    Tasmanian University White Water Rafting Club, Olinda Grove, Mount Nelson TAS, Australia
    Welcome to the first canyoning trip of 2023!

    This will be a beginner friendly introduction to canyoning for all our new members. This will be a very long day with a very early start! The $10 cost of this trip will cover all the rope and gear wear of canyoning and fuel. Unfortunately we won’t be able to have a BBQ as it will be a jammed packed day but we will stop for food on the way.

    Due to gear and guide avaliability this trip will be limited to 6 people. If you miss the initial signups you will be put on a waiting list. Please let me know if you need to pullout asap.

    The plan:
    Meet at the sheds (see location of event) to pack gear at 5:30am then drive upto Dove Canyon at Cradle Mountain. We will have a quick stop at Campbell Town on the way get snacks. We should arrive at the Cradle around 10:30am where we will walk 20 mins to the start of the canyon. Ideally we will get a couple laps done before we head back to Hobart to clean up all the gear by 6-7pm. This will be a very long day out so please pack lunch and snacks.

    Canyon description:
    Dove Canyon is a commerically run canyon that involves two easy abseils and alot of jumping off waterfalls and go down The Laundry Chute, a 10m natural slide! This is a great beginner canyon for anyone comfortable swimming and jumping! Abseiling experiance is preferable but not necessary as we can teach you on the day.

    If the level of Dove is too high then we will run Machinary Canyon instead. Machinary is all abseiling and floating in the sun with minimal jumping. The first abseil is the longest at 20m tall so if you suffer from vertigo this is not the canyon for you.

    What you need:
    • Join the club here: Join the club!
    • Thermals to go under wetsuit
    • Towel, dry change of cloths and dry shoes
    • Money for the food and fuel
    • Enclosed footwear for in the canyon (Something you can swim in like Dunlop Volleys, Wetsuit booties, etc)
    • Lunch, snacks and water bottle
    • Backpack to carry your stuff to the start of the canyon.

    UTE: Advanced Bush Survival & Camping 101
    6:30 am – 6:30 am
    Scotch Oakburn College Valley Campus, Esk Highway, Fingal TAS, Australia

    Exploring remote and wild places can be scary but what if we told you that there’s a crash course to help you do it safely (and relatively cheaply)? 

    Join us on our final and biggest Unique Tassie Experience of the year. Only 16 spots are on offer! All gear provided. 

    This survival camping 101 will give you the knowledge to put together your own Tassie adventures, whilst equipping yourself with the necessary items that will keep you safe and comfortable when in the Tasmanian bush. You’ll be a seasoned camper in no time! 


    – 2 nights/3 days

    – All meals PROVIDED. (except Day 1 lunch)

    – Tents, backpacks, stoves and all other gear for exercises are PROVIDED. 

    The camp will lay the foundations of skills that you can hone and adapt to any outdoor environment and open a whole world of future adventures no matter where you go. It will make you aware of your own limitations, but also give you the knowledge to know where to find information when you need it. 


    The program will take place in the Fingal Valley using both the Scotch Oakburn Valley Outdoor Campus and surrounding areas of both beautiful and rugged rivers, gorges and elevated mountain ridges of St. Pauls Dome. Your accommodation will be basic, no cabins and soft mattresses, but an opportunity to create your own shelter, be it a modern lightweight tent or a night under the stars in a bivouac that you constructed using some of the skills that you will learn.  


    Toilets and showers will be available on night one but night two will challenge you to know how to live comfortably in a remote environment away from the modern conveniences including mobile phones.  


    If you decide to sign up for this program it is suggested that you find a companion that you know you can work with as we will operated in units of two, sharing a tent or bivouac and preparing food together. Once signed up we will provide you with a list of essential requirements, but tents, back packs and cooking stoves will be provided by us and allocated on the first day.

    What you’ll learn in this camping 101: 

    ·      Intro to safe camping practice

    ·      Drinking water

    ·      Building an effective emergency bivouac (shelter) 

    ·      Intro to Map Reading and Navigation

    ·      Low visibility navigation (night navigation exercise)

    ·      Lighting a fire in an emergency (how to)

    ·      Lashings & practical knots 

    ·      Security on steep ground (using a rope) (not rock-climbing)

    ·      Crossing rivers safely (or when not to attempt). 

    ·      Cooking in the bush (safe and effective use of stoves)

    ·      Personal hygiene and protecting the environment

    ·      Safety in the bush & safety equipment, and other various outdoor skills! 

    How does it work?

    It’s only $120 for two nights/three day!
    This has been heavily subsidised by TUSA, and on top of this, we have
    partnered with tourism operators for negotiated rates. The course would usually cost more than $500 per person.

     

    Plus, all meals are provided, except lunch on Saturday.

The Tasman Peninsula provided a natural penitentiary, with only a narrow strip of land connecting it to mainland Tasmania. The site, on 125 hectares (309 acres), has a new world-class visitor centre and restaurant and more than 30 historic buildings and ruins, as well as beautiful gardens.
