The second club camp for the Spring quarter was held at Smiggin Hole, Koszciusko National Park in the beautifully situated and equipped Gunuma Lodge. Our host for the week Wal, made us welcome and assisted with local knowledge and the smooth running of the lodge, making our stay one to remember with great pleasure.
