Welcome to the

Victorian Outdoors Club!

We are AVOC, a group of students not only seeking new adventures, but also bringing our own passions to University to share with others. Come along and challenge yourself, meet a bunch of like minded people, and relax while enjoying some well earned time off! AVOC is a joint club run by ACU Melbourne and ACU Ballarat, and welcomes all students from ACU and other universities, as well as community members.
