QUT and affiliates sued for $8m Kangaroo Point 17-May-2017 At 10:07:25 AM PThomson
This could be problematic for the Uni, but not so relevant to we amateurs (though it is an interesting case study).

Normally a "high risk activity" like climbing has no liability between amateurs because the risks are "so fundamentally obvious" (the reason why no Negligence claim between amateurs has ever succeeded in Australia, pertaining to adventure sport), however an organised Uni outing (especially with an experienced individual taking on the role of "guide") has a particular duty of care as an advising authority.

I think the Uni will probably settle this one.

Thanks for sharing Martym.
