Conference Destination

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Explore Melbourne for the latest culture, food, sport and entertainment.

Melbourne itself offers a vibrant backdrop for the conference. Renowned for its cultural richness, innovative spirit, and diverse community, the city provides delegates with opportunities for networking and cultural exploration outside the conference venue.

Uncover the vibrant flavors, sights, and soul of Melbourne’s diverse neighborhoods. Dive into the city center, where pockets of activity, relaxed cafes, bohemian bars, architecturally significant buildings, and unexpectedly cool hidden gems await exploration.

Discover a treasure trove of art galleries, hidden bars, and delicious restaurants tucked away upstairs and down charming laneways. Unearth independent fashion boutiques, skilled artisan workshops, and street artists leaving their mark. Stroll waterfront paths as the sun dips, painting the sky in hues of raspberry ripple. Ascend to a rooftop bar and sip cocktails under a canopy of twinkling stars.

Just a tram ride away, Melbourne’s fringe neighborhoods pulsate with distinct personalities. Hop on your fixed-gear bike and explore the creative energy of the northern suburbs like Collingwood, Fitzroy, Brunswick, and Northcote. Immerse yourself in the live music scene at Richmond’s pubs.

Venture south of the river and indulge in retail therapy in the stylish streets of South Yarra, Prahran, and Toorak. Mingle with locals at South Melbourne Market, or unwind on the sandy shores of St Kilda and Port Melbourne with your beach towel in hand. Each neighborhood in Melbourne offers a unique experience, waiting to be discovered.
