Cherbourg Trip 2018

The annual TROHPIQ Cherbourg Trip has always been very popular amongst students, and 2018 was no different. Over the weekend of the 26th and 27th of May, 34 medical and allied health students gathered to travel via bus to Wondai, Cherbourg and Goomeri to get a comprehensive tour of what life as a rural healthcare worker can offer.

The Saturday started with a community healthcare outreach stall at a local footy game in Wondai, featuring the ever popular Big Ted. The group then moved on to the Ration Shed Museum of Cherbourg to learn more about the history of the area and how this still impacts the Indigenous community living within in. Saturday night was spent in Goomeri, camping in the cold surrounded by new friends.

Sunday was kickstarted by a tour of Cherbourg Hospital and discussions with the local medical super intendant and pharmacist. The weekend finished with some free time at the local Goomeri Pumpkin Festival, featuring the Great Australian Pumpkin Roll.
