Other information

This presentation will focus on some of the outback trips that Dorothy has made with her husband and friends over the last 25 years. It will be accompanied by slides of these trips. It will begin with a long trip through Alice Springs and then up the Tanami Track to the Kimberley region, exploring the amazing chasms, gorges and formations such as Purnululu. Then on to the Gibb River Road,  an experience in itself, and to Kununurra and the Ord River, then to Kakadu, where the art is very different.

Then another trip across most of the Nullarbor desert, up to Newman and the Karijini National Park, well worth exploring, further on to the Burrup Peninsula, then down through Ningaloo to Shark Bay, Geraldton and Perth. These trips provided many differing sights, lots of bird life and unceasing wind!

REQUIREMENTS: No requirements; class members may take notes if they wish.

TUTOR: Dorothy was a teacher and administrator in the TAFE system for 30 years. She then spent 20 years as a voluntary guide with the NGV and is now a tutor at the Australian Tapestry Workshop in South Melbourne.

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.
