About Brisbane

Brisbane is a multicultural, subtropical city of about 2.2 million people,
the third largest city in Australia. It is the capital of Queensland,
situated in the SE corner of that huge state. The average temperature in
Brisbane in July is between 59°F and 68°F, though higher temperatures are
not uncommon. Brisbane winters are famous for their clear blue skies and
balmy weather.  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.visitbrisbane.com.au_&d=DwIFAw&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=AGYZ7-AeerjxzYnIwL-lBLFI3SPYN3BDmku4qGQB4Tg&m=bY9lLRt-HgsznLFa8TH-B4mWq2U3X2aLuEpRf9Xp0Ho&s=HKgXh0ytULXzCPbm_aTcHMVaYBzguQXDXKVOsPkO2DY&e= 

Queensland is the state of the Great Barrier Reef, of rainforests, deserts,
mangroves, bush, the tallest sand hills in the world and the largest sand
island in the world. The eastern coast stretches 1720 miles from Coolangatta
to Cape York.

Brisbane sits on the Brisbane River, a large tidal river surrounded by a
ring of hills, flowing into Moreton Bay, which is itself enclosed by great
sandy islands. Subtropical rainforest can still be found less than an hour’s
drive from the city. Here are several local zoos where native wildlife can
be seen and sketched. You can cuddle a koala at Lone Pine Sanctuary

Irwin. Parrots, kookaburras, cockatoos, possums, magpies and butcher birds
are commonly seen in the suburbs.

 

Conference Venues

The University of Queensland (UQ)’s St Lucia Campus
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__campuses.uq.edu.au_st-2Dlucia&d=DwIFAw&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=AGYZ7-AeerjxzYnIwL-lBLFI3SPYN3BDmku4qGQB4Tg&m=bY9lLRt-HgsznLFa8TH-B4mWq2U3X2aLuEpRf9Xp0Ho&s=jkGvdLzowhqBX_g4n21bP6iSQu8Dicf65ORwwtXsDig&e= sits on a stunning 280-acre site, on the
river at St Lucia, 7 kilometres (4.35 miles) from Brisbane’s CBD. The campus
has extensive landscaped grounds, with three lakes, and all the facilities
of a large University. It fans out from a 1930s, heritage-listed sandstone
cloister enclosing the Great Court. There is plenty of wildlife on campus.

The campus has very good bus and ferry links to the city and Queensland
Cultural Centre. Buses run via a green bridge (closed to car traffic) and a
dedicated busway with stations like a train line, while the City Cat ferries
are a fast and enjoyable way to get around on our beautiful river.

 

We have booked accommodation at Women’s College. The college is centred
round a beautiful mid-century dining hall and has many of the meeting rooms
we will use for the conference. It boasts a range of accommodations and has
a reputation for the best food on campus.

Hi Chris,

               The plan is much the same as for other conferences.

Our dates are June 29 - July 6, 2019. Saturday is arrival and rest time. You
will need it! 

I am sorry there is nothing up yet. I believe there is some problem loading
even our introductory page with the new website under construction.

To quote the general website page. “The conference opens on Sunday evening
with dynamic portfolio sharing and a meet-and-greet reception, followed by
core programs from Monday to Wednesday and workshops/fieldtrips from
Thursday to Saturday.”

Hi Geoff,

This is amazing!  Great prices.  Thanks to Jan for tracking this down!

Do you have a feel for the program yet?  I am wondering what the dates are
for the main conference, and also for the add-ons, like workshops?  I want
to buy my air soon, and I would love to know the approximate meeting layout
so I can plan.  Just a broad brush kind of thing!

Best,

Chris
