Have You Heard events have really been making full use of Sydney and it’s surrounds to throw regular, unique secret parties, whether it be doubled up with staycations outside of the city or bringing together a school of ferry’s for a good ol’ harbour party. The event-throwing crew have been bringing imagination back in a big way, and this weekend they’ll be pulling out all stops for a grand summer camp. Summer Land will be all about bringing you back to the days of school camps, mixing that memory with a contemporary blend of activities for a crowd capped at 300.

The “secret magical location” will only be revealed on Friday 12th February where ticket holders have options of hopping aboard a locomotive at Central Station at 6pm or getting the location texted to them.

Those who opt to meet at Central Station will receive a Summer Land wristband on arrival before being whisked away to a secret location in tropical Australian bush, transformed into a party paradise by Have You Heard’s innovative team. There’s the option to camp, book a dorm room, or a private villa, all bringing in that summer camp vibe before Friday brings in one massive Summer Land party.

Saturday morning will offer a range of activities, including physical challenges like abseiling, ropes course, climbing wall, flying fox, canoeing, archery, and morning yoga, all right before a Summer Land lake party where floating swans await. Saturday night will see in a BYO fancy dress party with a “My Bloody Valentine” theme, seeing as Summer Land is across Valentine’s Day weekend.

Sunday shall see one big collective brunch before a coach takes everyone back to the city for a midday arrival.

Accommodation, transport, and meals for all of Saturday and Sunday morning are included in the ticket price, everything beyond that throws it back to your own imagination.
