Wellington

For those of you travelling to Wellington to attend the Conference we'd like to quote you one of our favourite local sayings "you can't beat Wellington on a good day". While you're here we hope you have time to take a stroll around the waterfront, ride the Cable Car and enjoy the dramatic views of our growing cityscape, visit the Carter Observatory, or simply enjoy Wellington's vibrant café scene.

Airport
Wellington airport is a picturesque 18 minute drive to the conference venue (via Evans Bay and Oriental parade). There are direct daily flights between Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne.
