Melbourne is a stable, prosperous city and a gateway to the Asia- Pacific region. With its ease of navigation and temperate climate, visitors are drawn to Melbourne to explore its labyrinth of laneways and experience its innovative food and wine scene, thriving culture and year-round calendar of major events. Melbourne’s comprehensive transport network and touring companies will enable delegates to travel to other parts of Victoria and Australia for pre and post touring. For delegates that require public transport to get around the city and Docklands, tram travel is free. For many delegates, this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the ‘Land Down Under’ and have access to uniquely Australian experiences. An exciting and engaging social program can bring to life Australia’s diverse culture and extensive array of natural attractions. Around Melbourne itself are inspiring day trips to the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula wine regions, the Great Ocean Road, the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, historic Sovereign Hill and Healesville Sanctuary. Further afield, Melbourne’s airport offers easy access to attractions, including Sydney, Uluru in the outback, the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands. The conference will be held in hybrid mode (i.e., both on site and online), with all events facilitating online participation.
