Students from Canberra’s Australian National University (ANU) are among the many who are camping out in style this year in the “tent city” set up at the Austin Caravan Park.

The camp is one of three which have been set up across Tamworth to house the influx of students during the Games.

Owner of the park, Christine Edwards, said while the students had appreciated the relaxed surrounds, they had been doing little relaxing


“They have been partying hard, getting up bright and early and playing a couple of games a day. I’m amazed they still have the energy,” Ms Edwards said.

The ANU students had also given neighbouring holiday-makers little cause for complaint, having shown exemplary behaviour since arriving.

Ms Edwards said other park residents had only expressed one gripe.

“They come home at night, singing in full voice, and they aren’t the greatest singers,” Ms Edwards said.

And the students themselves seem to enjoy their temporary home, with economics student Graeme Dunn saying he had only one problem with the digs.

“It’s bloody cold.”
