Saturday 20th January and Sunday 21st January
- Picnic + cricket at the Botanical Gardens (Suggested time: 11am - 7pm).
We can get there by tram according to this little map on their site:
The Saturday meeting point should be at Flinders St Station. From there we'll all catch a tram together. This is from their site:QUOTEFrom Flinders Street, you can get on the following trams: 3, 5, 8, 16, 64, 67. Get off the tram at the Domain Road Interchange. Walk towards the Shrine of Remembrance and you will see the Observatory Buildings. The Observatory buildings are part of the Gardens. The Visitor Centre is located here and can be a good starting point. The Number 8 Tram can drop you close to Gate D.
The Botanical Gardens website says no BBQs are allowed so it looks like it will be a good old-fashioned picnic. What say everyone pitch in around $10? Drinks, bread, salami, ready made roast chicken, lebanese bread, hommous, salads... those are just a few of my suggestions but we'll see what else we can get.
If your name isn't on the attendee list and you would like to go, please PM me with your contact number and I'll put your name on the list.
Also, if you have a suggestion for activities or something better to do please post them here so everyone can discuss them.
I might possibly be staying with Tubby's mate so the hostel idea might be going out the window. Just gotta show us how to get there by tram. @_@
