Get ready for UNLIMITED! fun on the Southern Downs for Queensland Youth Week 2019!

27 March 2019

Think there’s nothing for young people to do in the region? Think again! Jump off the couch, round up your friends and join Southern Downs Youth Council for UNLIMITED!

Created by young people for young people, UNLIMITED is an opportunity for the region’s youth to take part in fun, adventure-based activities and to socialise and connect with other young people from across the Southern Downs.

SDYC will host the free UNLIMITED! event at the Leslie Dam YMCA Camp during Queensland Youth Week on 13, 14 and 15 April for young people in Grades 7-12.

The huge line-up of activities includes archery, low ropes, stand-up paddle boarding, geocaching, canoeing, rock climbing and more. Stop watching videos on YouTube—get among it and challenge yourself at UNLIMITED!

Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie said UNLIMITED! is something active and fun for young people to get involved with during the April school holidays.

“The Youth Council members from 2018 and 2019 have come up with a great event for young people in our region and have put a lot of hard work into making UNLIMITED! a reality,” Cr Dobie said.

“UNLIMITED! is a wonderful opportunity for young people to get out of their comfort zones and meet other young people from across the region, so the more people that take part the better!”

Queensland Youth Week is an annual event that celebrates young people aged 12 to 25 and how they positively contribute to Queensland communities.

This year’s theme, ‘unlimited’, praises the boundless energy young people bring to their communities and encourages them to look at the future and see limitless possibilities.

SDRC has created a Southern Downs Youth Week calendar of events which is available on the SDRC website and Southern Downs Youth Facebook page.

UNLIMITED! is a free event and includes morning tea and lunch. If you know a young person that wants to break the holiday boredom or hang out with other young people, please spread the word!

To register, download the registration form from the SDRC website. Registrations close Friday, 5 April at 4pm.
