Other information

Each session will explore a less familiar travel destination and show the experience offered to the traveler. Sessions will start with background information related to the travel destination such as history (natural and cultural) and geography. Course participants will then be taken on a photographic journey. There will be opportunity for questions and for participants to share their own experiences if they are familiar with the region being explored.

This series will include some Australian destinations, including our far-flung islands – Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, Macquarie Island – as well as overseas destinations.

TUTOR: Libby’s passion is the natural world and she has been involved over a long time with organisations focused on environmental advocacy and protection. Her travels have focused principally on exploring the world’s wilderness areas, including long distance hiking trips. She has travelled extensively to many far-flung places as well as extensively in Australia and overseas. She has a B.Comm, Grad. Dip Mkting and a B. Letters (Philosophy).

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
