Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour
Hillsong Powerhouse Bond University
Hillsong Powerhouse Summerfest 2017 is going to be better than ever! Get ready for an incredible 3 days from Thursday 26th – Saturday 28th January 2017. We’re back at the amazing Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour, and God is going to move in our young adults like never before. Register now and don’t miss out! Summerfest is an incredible time with all the young adults from around Australia gathering on Cockatoo Island. There is an amazing social atmosphere as well as incredible praise and worship from Hillsong Y&F and impacting messages from various teachers.
For all of us at Bond we will be flying down or driving on the 25th or 26th. Leaving on the 25th will be easier as you can make a weekend out of Sydney and there will be less crowds due to Australia Day being on the 26th. As Summerfest starts on the 26th of January which is Australia Day and a Public Holiday, the only classes which will be missed are those scheduled on Friday (most people don't have Friday classes). The final night on Summerfest finishes around 9PM, therefore it is advisable to plan accomodation for the night in Sydney City as Sydney Airport closes at 10:30PM.
ACCOMMODATION: There are 3 options for accommodation available: Bring your own tent; pre-built tent and glamping (luxury tent). You can choose these on the ordering page. There are free showers and toilets located around the island, all with hot water.
TRANSPORT: You will need to book flights from the Gold Coast to Sydney, or organise to drive down. Flights are usually under $100 return. The island is served by a regular public ferry from Circular Quay in Sydney City so transport does not need to be arranged prior.
FOOD: There are cooking facilities (Grill & Microwave) including fridges located in the main camping area. You may bring your own food, purchase a food voucher or buy your food from the various outlets on the island. S
If you have any questions please post in this group or message your connect leader. We hope to see you there and can't stress how amazing this time will be !
