3, 2, 1...

Well... not just yet, but there's less than 24hrs until the Big Lift heads out of Sydney for the 2011 journey. In 8 days we'll visit Muswellbrook, Narrabri, Warialda, Stanthorpe, Brisbane and Valla Beach before making it back home.

Actually, Sydney's not home for everyone on this year's Big Lift. Joining the trip are students from Queensland University of Technology, University of Newcastle and international students from Vietnam, China, Thailand and Norway!

At each stop we'll be working with community organisations to put our mobile workforce (of 42) to good use. We can't wait to meet all the people who have been helping us organise service projects, food and halls to keep us warm and dry at night!

We'll be updating the blog at we go so keep an eye out for us here, on Facebook or Twitter.

See you all soon!
