Conference Site

The University of Queensland's St Lucia campus is considered by many to be Australia's most attractive. Located seven kilometres from the city's heart on a magnificent 114-hectare site in a bend of the Brisbane River, the campus has expansive landscaped grounds and many playing fields. Its hub is a semi-circle of cloistered buildings enclosing the National Trust-listed Great Court.  The Alumni Teaching Garden in College Road near the river includes a quiet area of lush rainforest with public walkways. The adjacent Una Prentice Memorial Garden, bounded by Roberston Walk and Ferry Walk, surrounds two of the three lakes on campus.  

Brisbane City

Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, is midway up the east coast of Australia. With the Gold Coast to the south and the Sunshine Coast to the north, domestic and international airports, Brisbane is an ideal headquarters for an Australian holiday. The inner-city, metropolitan Brisbane is surrounded by leafy, sometimes very hilly, suburbs. The Pacific Highway leads south to the Gold Coast and its well-known surf beaches.

Around Brisbane

Gold Coast, only 45 minutes drive from Brisbane, a 35-km strip of beaches, it is the most commercialised area in Australia. Activities include swimming, surfing, shopping, dining out or visiting theme parks: Sea World, Movie World, Dreamworld and Wet'n'Wild.

Sunshine Coast stretches from the top of Bribie Island to just north of Noosa. It is a popular holiday area, renowned for fine beaches and top class accommodation. Activities include swimming, surfing, fishing, visiting theme parks and bushwalking. Visit the Glasshouse Mountains and the famous Steve Irwin's  Australia Zoo.

Moreton Island -- one of the largest sand islands in the world -- is just 35 kilometres from Brisbane. Activities include dolphin feeding, sand boarding, whale watching, 4WD tours, water sports, fishing, scuba-diving and bushwalking.
