There are a limited number of rooms reserved in the Women's College which is conveniently located directly on campus. It a nice, quite place, just a 5 minutes stroll from the conference site. The college has email facilities. For couples there are a few twin rooms available. Single rooms (including breakfast) will be at about AUD 60, twins at AUD 90. It is possible to get lunch and dinner at the college. Since we only have a limited number of rooms reserved, you need to book fairly early. Bookings can be made together with the registration.
Several hotels and colleges are available in the neighbourhood of the university.
The following is a short selection of possibilities close to the campus. It is by no means complete.
You will be here in our winter, which is equivalent to early autumn in the northern hemisphere, with temperatures between 12 and 17 Celsius. The days are usually sunny, but the evenings are cold and it can rain. You will need a pullover, a jacket and maybe a raincoat, but not a heavy overcoat.
American Express, Visa and Mastercard are the most commonly used credit cards and most banks have 24-hour cash dispensers. The university campus has several banks and is conveniently close to reasonably-priced shops and cafes. It has a major teaching hospital and there are medical services on campus. If you require medication, please bring a legible (typed) prescription with you, as brand names vary from country to country and our pharmacists may not know precisely what you want.
If you wish to do some genteel tourism, the Opera House, Government House, Botanic Gardens, Art Gallery, State Library, State Parliament and the major museums are all within walking distance of one another, about 20 minutes by bus from the campus. You should have no difficulty with seeing at least the major sights.
