Welcome Drinks at MONA

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

Welcome Drinks will officially start at 4.00pm but we suggest you visit MONA at your own leisure prior to this. There are a number of ways to get to MONA, including the MONA ROMA Ferry, MONA ROMA bus, bike and taxi. Please visit the MONA website for further information, times and to book. Book early! Delegates, please book a 6pm ferry back from MONA.

During the afternoon insect inspired cult films will be playing in the MONA theatrette.

If you wish to travel by coach, please email to confirm a seat on the coach.


Government House Reception

His Excellency, The Honourable Peter Underwood, AC, Governor of Tasmania, and Mrs Underwood will host a reception for delegates and their partners at Government House to mark the conference. Tasmania’s Government House is regarded as one of the best Vice-Regal residences in the Commonwealth and is one of the largest in Australia. Invitations for the Reception are issued by Government House. There is a limit to the number Government House can accommodate and, if necessary, delegates who register early will be given preference.

Conference Dinner

The Hobart Function & Conference Centre enjoys a waterfront location like no other, situated as it is on Elizabeth Street Pier, spanning 100m out over the sparkling water of the Derwent, the centerpiece of Hobart's bustling waterfront community.

Poster Session

Following sessions on Tuesday there will be poster viewing where refreshments will be served.
