As a bus full of students headed over Bells Line of Road toward Lithgow, the clouds were steadily building to the south west. Over 100 medical and allied health students from all corners of the country descended upon the picturesque sheep and cattle property “Oakfield” outside Dunedoo NSW to learn about rural healthcare and country living. As the bus rolled into Mudgee, there was a flurry of activity to stock up on last-minute supplies. Some bottles of wine, a few bags of chips, and (surprisingly) a couple of people even bought last-minute sleeping bags. Fully stocked, and safely at “Oakfield” we set up our tent-fortress for the weekend.
