Title: AUG Accommodation
Post by: Twig on September 08, 2009, 11:04:05 AM
Just thought it may be interesting to get a feel for where most of the teams are staying this year considering most of the accommodation on the GC is centered around the strip.

UWA will be at the Crown Towers GC ~ 1km from party central

Newcastle will be at 'capricorn one.' It's 1.5km north of the party zone. It's claim to fame is that it has "the biggest spa pool on the Gold Coast."

UQ are at Breakfree Longbeach, ~350m south of Cavill, on the beach.

I believe QUT are at something called Quarterdeck, 2 blocks north of Cavill.

Whoever tagged the fields on the map is off by a little bit. They're where it says "Runaway Bay Hospital". No idea why Google Maps thinks there is a hospital there.

Oh right. There it is. After I zoom out a million times. That's shit. Looks like the tourney will be running to "frisbee time".

ANU stayed there 2 years back... Good accommodation but 'the biggest spa pool on the Gold Coast' was out of action :-[ , making it a rather small and very cold swimming pool. It is in a pretty good spot tho, right across the road from the beach.

Yeah we're all pretty excited about being across the road from the beach. Hopefully they've got their shit together and have the spa pool cranking, otherwise I'll be most disappointed.

The fields are a bit far away, but thankfully we'll have an awesome team bus to get around in.

Or you could leave your bed earlier than 5 minutes before game-on.

It's only 11km from Cavill Avenue. I drive further than that to get to work every day, and I'm sure most of you do as well.

Sounds like something an AUG rookie would say.

Zoom in more and switch to satellite if you need to - the pin is on top of green fields?

flinders are at the same place as two years ago, club surfers: 2877 Gold Coast Highway, Surfers Paradise, Queensland 4217.

pretty sure its a fair distance from the fields, but we can walk to the bus route and the uni hooked us up, so whatever.

UTS is at the International Beach Resort, which is on the Esplanade (directly across the road from the beach) and a short walk to Cavill Av.  We've got some sort of shuttle bus sorted to the fields too.
