Food on campus over summer

Every now and then someone asks us about where they can get food while they are on campus. At this time of year, it's a tricky question to answer.  Each food provider has their own reasons for opening and closing when they do, and some will remain open for a little longer than others...

As things stand at the moment, this is where (and when) you can get something to eat:

Townsville:

Juliette's is open from 8.00am-2.00pm Mon-Thurs, and they close at 1.00pm on Fridays. They currently expect to close on Friday the 23rd of December, but this may change.

Miss Sushi is open from 8.00am-2.00pm, and will close on Thursday the 15th of December (opening again on January 9, 2017).

The Market Place (the food place formally known as "the Refec") is open from 7.30am-2.00pm (but they may still be around at 2.30pm), and will close on Friday the 16th of December.

The Green Plate is currently closed.

Jamaica Blue opens from 7.00am-2.30pm/3.00pm, depending on trade.  They'll close at 2.00pm on Friday the 23rd of December, and re-open on the 3rd of January.

Woolworths should still be open for normal Woolworths' hours during this time.

Cairns:

D’Lish (inside the Cairns Institute) is open 7:30am-3:30pm Monday to Friday, and expects to close on Friday the 16th of December.

Aroma Café (in the refectory) is open 8:00am-3:00pm Monday through Friday, and is also likely to close on the 16th of December.

That gives us a week in December and at least one week in January where food options will be pretty scarce indeed. In Townsville the Medilink Center in the Hospital will still have some options, and in Cairns you'll have to cross the roundabout to the shops on McGregor Road.

If you're on campus, you may want to bring a packed lunch.

Don't cross the roundabout, it's too scary, take the path under the highway by following the path around Dentistry.

Also both Cairns food outlets are closed until the 16th January. Looks like the vending machines will cop a workout.
