CAFMANZ will arrange return bookings from Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch to Sydney at $125 for students or $138 if you cannot qualify as a student (contact us for further details). Applications must reach us by March 15 at the very latest, and be accompanied by $40 deposit. ($10 of this will be forwarded to the Sydney Committee for bus bookings). Costs for bus transport within Australia will be held to $100—which is dirt cheap for a round trip of over 6,500 miles! Food costs are not settled yet, but food will be bought in bulk and costs will be minimal—say about $30. We will be camping so accomodation will cost nix.
Total costs, allowing for a few dollars piss-money etc will definitely be less than $300 per person, particularly for the Quick March.
