End-of-Sem Photowalk

Hi fellow photo enthusiasts,

As exams are fast approaching, we thought it would be good to host a casual photowalk for everyone to release some stress and head into end-of-sem refreshed. 

The plan is to witness the sunset at the Wilson Outlook Reserve and head for a walk around New Farm and eventually stop at a bar for a feed and a drink or two.

As this is a great way to release some stress and free your head for a day, we encourage you to come along and join us!!
Hope to see you there!

Come along to a great night full of music and even better company. This is an awesome platform to meet new people and to close out what has been a hopefully eventful first half of the year for everyone. This year we are very fortunate in having both the Harry Potter Alliance and the QUT Indian students association (CSIQ) being a part of this event. We also have a private DJ (hehehe) Therefore, we hope to see you all there and have a great night. 

Key themes we are looking out for :
- Harry Potter
- Tradie
- Traditional Indian

Best outfit meeting one of the themes wins a lit prize! (Rumour has it its gonna be a jug or two..... or even 4 or 5 hehehe)

Look out for execs judging costumes as well. 
And have a safe and great night.
