Murdoch University’s Open Day is on this Sunday, August 22 from 10am to 4pm and is a must for anyone planning to study at University next year.

Visitors can spend the day exploring, asking questions and making discoveries around the South Street campus to experience life at Murdoch.

  • a chance to watch Murdoch radio students in their studio;
  • fiery thermite reactions;

  • demonstrations of facial reconstruction by building a face in clay

When you’ve finished exploring the campus you can find your way back to the central hub at Bush Court for some food and refreshments and have fun on the rides including zorb ball, bungee run and for the youngsters cup and saucer or pony rides.
