At the career tent you can take a personality test and see what careers suit your personality type and chat to our career advisors.

Get inspired at course hotspots

At Open Day you'll be able to make a robotic hand move, watch a chemistry magic show and even taste the difference marketing can make thanks to a wide range of hands on activities and demonstrations around campus.

Head to the hotspots to get involved, and talk to our lecturers and students if you'd like to find out more.

The South Street campus covers an area of 227 hectares. It's the biggest university campus in Australia, so you may be glad to hear you don't need to explore it all by foot. Just hop on a free guided tram tour running from stops all over the campus every 15 minutes.

There are also walking tours of Murdoch's Supercomputer, Vet Hospital, Sports Centre, Student Accommodation and the Wetland Safari.
