Queensland international students steer the ‘Leader’ship

For the second time, the Queensland International Student Leaders’ Forum was held on 15th and 16th October in Brisbane. More than 120 Queensland international student leaders from different leadership backgrounds brought multicultural diversity to the forum. Student leaders carrying different titles at institutional levels all over Queensland added value to the insightful discussions at the forum. Queensland International Student Leaders’ Forum is an annual event organised by the Study Queensland with the involvement of the Queensland International Student Advisory panel (QISAP) and Council of International Students in Australia (CISA).

Study Queensland is the State Government organisation dedicated to welcoming, valuing, supporting and growing international students. The study clusters across Queensland including Study Brisbane, Study Gold Coast, Study Cairns, Study Townsville and Study Sunshine Coast also contributed towards the successful delivery of a productive leadership forum.

QUT Surfers: One of the best clubs at QUT!

After recently returning from my third surfing weekend trip in Byron Bay organised by QUT surfers, I can confidently say that the QUT Surfers club is my favorite club at QUT! If you haven’t heard, QUT Surfers is a relatively new club at QUT that aims to bring together both new and advanced surfers, organize weekend or day surfing trips and lessons, or just to socialize, chill at the beach and meet other cool people. No prior surfing experience is required to join the club so it is a great way to get out there and learn from the best. If being in the water isn’t your thing, the club is still a fantastic way to meet really cool people.

My travels across the South-Eastern border

During my winter break this year, I was invited by my best friend and her family to travel across the South-Eastern border of Australia with them. Our journey started with a flight to Melbourne, and road trips to Shepparton, Furner, Mount Gambier and Adelaide, and flight back from Adelaide to Brisbane.

The trip was an immersive experience as we stayed on farms owned by family friends, and I played with lots of baby lambs, had freshly laid eggs for breakfast and also had a bonfire night in the freezing weather.

My best friend surprised me with a trip to the Blue Lake, Tantanoola caves and the possum caves in Mount Gambier.

The spectacular Tantanoola caves have a stunning arrangement of stalactites and stalagmites made exclusively of limestone and dolomite, and the structures are still active! This is one of the few wheelchair accessible caves in Australia.

The Blue Lake in South Australia is a crater lake formed over an inactive volcano in Mount Gambier. The depth, colour, and visibility of the lake changes with the season.

On the way to Adelaide from Furner, we also came across the famous giant lobster, and absolutely had to take a picture of it!

The notorious giant lobster!

All in all, this trip inspired me to aim to travel more across Australia and explore the less famous towns and cities and discover more of Australia’s stunning landscape and natural formations.
