 party in March. 

SU students are on spring break from March 8 to 15.

While many college students go to places like Cancun, Mexico during spring break, this Australian holiday resort is trying to do what it can to lure visitors during a not-so-great economy. 

According to news reports, this “month-long, nude ‘anything goes’ party (is) to combat an expected economic downturn.” 

“Tough economic times call for stiff measures,” resort owner Tony Fox told the Courier-Mail newspaper. “We’ve taken the bull by the horns and it’s going nuts; we’re close to fully booked.”

A Reuters article said industry leaders expect holiday bookings to drop by up to one-third in early 2009.



  1. I wonder if the Nude Anything-Goes party combats the economic downturn by eliminating the need for vacationers to purchase expensive bathing suits and other fancy garbs?
    Although, the amount of sunscreen needed is increased.
