So much more than books and learning
There used to be a time when University Open Days were dry and stuffy, strictly for the students and probably not much fun at all.

Times have changed.

The ECU Mt Lawley Open Day on August 14th will have more going on than the Royal Show, the whole family is invited and it's all free. What's on?

MiLi Markets Summer Beach
Summer Beach will be just one of the amazing stalls at the MiLi Markets

MiLI Markets will be there with a huge variety of exciting stalls and an eclectic mix of children's and adult fashion, beauty products, jewellery and unusual and quirky giftware, craft and toys. One of their favourites is Summer Beach with a fabulous range of bed linen and rugs.

Prizes and Giveaways
To celebrate their second birthday, MiLi are running a competition with a $50 voucher to spent at the markets all you have to do is invite friends to the Open Day. Click here for more information.
