Social Functions


Welcome Reception


Welcome to the Conference! The Kirby Oration will be immediately followed by the Welcome on the Terrace just downstairs.

The Welcome Reception is an ideal opportunity to catch up with your interstate and international colleagues and exhibitors and to meet delegates who are attending the conference for the first time.

Proudly sponsored by St John of God Healthcare.



Conference Dinner


Following the AABHL AGM at the University Club we will move down to the Royal Perth Yacht Club for the Conference Dinner, the main event on the social calendar of the AABHL Conference. This is a great chance to let your hair down with old and new friends while enjoying the spectacular view of Perth's Swan River.

How to get to the Royal Perth Yacht Club from the University of Western Australia?


Cross Hackett Drive and turn right onto the footpath.  Walk south around the Matilida Bay until you reach the Royal Perth Yacht Club.  (Paddle, build sandcastles or talk to the dolphins on the way)   Or head south along Hackett Drive until you get to the roundabout. Then make a left turn onto Australia II Drive. The Royal Perth Yacht Club will be located on the left. It will take approx 7 min.


Head south on Hackett Drive. At the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Australia II Drive. Destination will be on the left. It will take approx 1 min.
